The benefits of reusable workwear

Respirex only recommend limited life suits for applications where garments are used rarely and decontamination of a suit after use may not always be practicable. Where the chemical hazard is known and suits are used frequently, we recommend the use of reusable workwear for its greater mechanical protection, lower life-time cost and environmental benefits. Our reusable chemical workwear is designed to be laundered and re-used, providing a lower lifetime cost of ownership than the equivalent number of disposable garments.
