Protective Coveralls

General information
Wearing protective clothing protects your own safety and health. There are various criteria to consider when choosing the right coveralls , which differ depending on the intended use and working environment.

Disposable coveralls are mainly used for protection during painting, varnishing, cleaning work, dust, dirt and pollutants. They are also excellent as hygienic protective clothing.

Protective coveralls serve as a barrier between the wearer and the work environment. On the one hand, the fabric protects the body from various environmental influences such as pesticides and chemicals; on the other hand, it also protects working areas in the food industry, laboratories, medical areas and clean rooms from contamination by e.g. hair and germs from the body and clothing. Consequently, the protective coverall must be tight-fitting, tear-resistant as well as lightweight and breathable. As a rule, the protective coveralls consist of skin-friendly synthetic fleece on the inside. Often a hood is also necessary to comply with hygiene regulations.

Six protection classes (types) for different areas of application
