|Coverall Standards Explained:|
|Type 1 BS EN 943-1||Gas Tight||Suits which are intrinsically sealed against the environment.|
|TYPE 2 BS EN 943-1||Non-gas tight||Suits which retain a positive internal pressure to prevent ingress of dusts, liquids or vapours.|
|TYPE 3 BS EN 14605||Liquid tight|
Suits which can protect against strong and directional jets of a liquid chemical such as spray from a burst pipe under pressure. Requires a barrier fabric and sealed seams.
|TYPE 4 BS 1N 14605||Spray tight|
Suits which can protect against saturation of liquid chemical, where volume of the liquid builds up on the suit forming pools, resulting in rivulets. Requires a barrier fabric and sealed seams.
|TYPE 5 BS EN ISO 13982-1||Dry particle|
Suits for protection against hazardous dusts and dry particles.
|TYPE 6 BS EN 13034||Reduced spray|
Suits for protection against light spray and splashes of liquid chemicals where there is no direction spray or build up of liquid on the suit, but there may be a fine mist of droplets in the atmosphere.
|Anti-static EN 1149-5|
Electrostatic dissipative protective clothing with a surface resistance of maximum 2.5 x 10 exp 9 ohm.
|Radioactive contamination EN 1073-2|
Protective clothing against particulate radioactive contamination.
|Biological EN 14126|
