GLS 300C

The GLS 300C suit in Chemprotex™ 300 is a single use air-fed gas-tight chemical protection suit for use with breathable air supplied from an external compressed air source providing positive pressure. 

The suit combines the benefits of a lightweight high-performance chemical barrier fabric with a gas-tight construction to method 2 of ISO 17491-1. It  incorporates permanently attached antistatic chemical gloves, sock feet and a lightweight gas-tight zip.

  • Semi-rigid laminated visor
  • Lightweight gas-tight zip fitted across the chest covered by double external storm flaps with Velcro® brand hook and loop fastener
  • Chemically protective anti-static glove attached to the suit material 
  • Integral socks in Chemprotex™ 300 material with splash-guard outer legs allowing the wearing of customer’s own boots. (Boots not included)
  • Must be worn with ESD footwear to ensure a conductive path to ground [when used in potentially explosive atmospheres]
  • The air distribution system in the hood and air permeable collar provide cooling air through the suit, making the wearer more comfortable and better able to focus on tasks
  • For use with Bartels & Rieger two piece air control valve (ref. RVD039W), supplied separately
  • The hood design provides high protection without the need for a tight-fitting face piece, which means:
    • Many wearers feel less constricted
    • Can be used by wearers with facial hair or glasses
    • Training needs are reduced
    • Face-fit testing is not required
