- Encapsulating design type CV (wide vision visor with 3D depth of 20 cm) – Well-proven design that fits on top of all major SCBA brands and bottle sizes
- Encapsulating design type VP1 (larger visor) – Fits on top of all major SCBA brands and bottle sizes
- Non-encapsulating design type T – Suitable for work in confined spaces.
- Garment Material:
- Outer: Strong and flexible polyamide fabric coated with chloroprene rubber.
- Inner: Chloroprene rubber and a multi-layer barrier laminate.
- This well-proven combination of rubber and a multi layer chemical barrier provides excellent chemical protection – more than 8 hours against a wide range of chemicals – coupled with great abrasion and flame resistance.
- Seams: Stitched with aramid thread for superior strength and durability. Sealed on the outside with a glued-on rubber tape and on the inside with a welded-on barrier laminate tape. The welded-on barrier tape provides a continuous barrier layer across the seam, giving the same chemical protection as the garment material itself.
