Industrial cleaning services includes everything from routine maintenance to tank cleaning, and workers can encounter a wide range of hazards in often difficult or dangerous conditions. In addition to consideration of the immediate dangers associated with the inhalation of fumes, exposure to hazardous particles, chemicals and biological hazards, it is important to consider long-term aspects of health risks. Selecting the right kind of protective clothing for the specific risk is essential.
Industrial cleaning services often involves working in explosive zones and/or confined spaces such as silos, ducts, aircraft wing sections and underground tunnels with safety harnesses and equipment that can generate a high level of physical strain.
Trusted chemical protection in extreme environments
Garments made of DuPont™ Tyvek® and DuPont™ Tychem® are tough, lightweight and available in a wide range of sizes. Garments are tear- and abrasion-resistant, maintaining the protection level throughout the application because the barrier fabric remains intact.
Design is not just a matter of appearance, and the devil is in the detail!
The overall design of a garment is a critical element to be factored into any assessment of a garment’s protective performance. Design is not simply a synonym for appearance. It has a major role to play in the garment’s fit and performance. Have you ever tried to slip a protective glove under the sleeve of a suit – and failed? Has a protective suit you were wearing ever torn at the crotch or armpit? Have the seams of a suit ever burst open as you were moving? Are the chin and neck exposed when the head turns? Are forearms exposed when performing overhead movements?
Protective suits made by DuPont are designed to help offer protection, comfort and freedom of movement.Manufactured garments by DuPont are subject to rigourous quality assurance procedures that include clearly defined frequencies for fabric, seam and garment physical property, barrier, fit testing and are subject to a visual quality inspection – going beyond the minimum requirements of the CE certification.
Innovative details for reliable protection
DuPont suits are specially designed to offer compatibility with other safety equipment. For example, garment hoods in the type 3-B Tychem® range or type 4-B Tyvek® 600 Classic Plus range are especially designed for a tight fit around a full mask. Other new design features that help safety include (model specific):
