CBRN suit - type 1a hazmat suit CPS 7900
Made to order for use in extreme conditions, the Dräger CPS 7900 gas-tight CBRN suit is particularly suitable against industrial chemicals, biological agents, and other toxic substances.
It is a type 1a protective clothing EN943 compliant and the self-contained breathing apparatus is worn under the suit for maximum protection. It was designed to protect the wearer when handling toxic or hazardous materials. Detailed description
The CBRN suit CPS 7900 has been designed to protect its wearer when handling toxic or hazardous materials. It offers unique resistance to many substances as well as excellent protection against mechanical hazards, liquefied gases and flames.
The Dräger CPS 7900 meets and exceeds the requirements of international standards for fire departments, safety and rescue organizations, as well as industry applications. It is - among others - approved for EN 1073-1: 2 (protection against contamination by radioactive particles), EN 14126 (protection against contamination by contagious agents) and BS 8467 (UK requirements for gas impermeable CBRN protective suits).
A type 1a CBRN suit EN743 compliant
Types 1 and 2 (ventilated or not) are "diving suits" types and are particularly suitable for classified sites with high chemical risks.
Type 1a corresponds to ventilated or non-ventilated chemical protection against gas, liquid chemicals, liquid aerosols and solid particles (EN 943-1) with the self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) worn inside the suit for maximum protection.
A flame retardant and self-extinguishing material for ATEX zones
The D-mex™ material of the suit offers unique resistance to many substances as well as excellent protection against mechanical hazards, liquefied gases and flames. The interior and exterior have a particularly strong elastomer layer and a chemical resistant barrier layer so that it retains its full protective capacity even when the material is damaged on the outside. Its ergonomic cut and the five available sizes allow a high degree of adaptability for user from 1.50 m to 2.05 m.
Its electrostatic capacities make it possible to use the suit in explosive areas. If a spark does occur despite this remarkable construction, the flame retardant and self-extinguishing material protects the wearer from serious burns. The flexibility of D-mex™ even makes it possible to handle liquefied gases such as ammonia at a contact temperature of -80 ° C.
