How to select the right disposable protective coveralls?

The protective coveralls must first of all be sewn in a way that makes them comfortable and prevents them from interfering with the work of the person wearing it. The cut and size must allow sufficient freedom of movement. There are also numerous important details: stitching reinforcements, tight-fitting hood as well as well-fitting holes for feet, hands and the hood.

Protective coveralls were created to ensure a high level of protection during work activities. They cover or replace personal clothing and their main purpose is to protect the worker from chemical, biological, mechanical, thermal, electromagnetic and electrical hazards. Coveralls often win against other elements of protective clothing thanks to their design, which provides additional protection against uncontrolled loss of parts of clothing by workers performing particularly dangerous work.

Protective coveralls for short-duration use, often referred to as “disposable protective coveralls”, were designed to protect people, processes and products. These products protect workers against chemical compounds, asbestos, dust and fibres, chemicals used in the agriculture and heavy industry as well as paints and varnishes. They protect demanding production processes and products, e.g. in cleanrooms or in the production of pharmaceuticals, as well as foodstuffs against contamination by staff. In addition, this clothing protects against contact with concentrated organic compounds and inorganic acids and bases as well as salt solutions. Furthermore, penetration tests using blood and virus simulants have shown that the specialised material used to manufacture disposable coveralls protects the wearer from other people’s body fluids and pathogens.

Key advantages of disposable protective coveralls:

1.Very light material which does not restrict the freedom of movement

2.Guaranteed 100% cleanliness (new coveralls every time)

3.Excellent protective properties

4.Long service life

5.No washing, maintenance or repair costs

6.Low purchase costs

7.Small size and low weight (minimum place needed for storage)

8.Simple disposal process

We should also keep in mind that not all coveralls, which are manufactured in accordance with European standards, offer the same protection. Their degree of impermeability to particles and substances as well as their durability and comfort of wear can vary greatly from model to model.
