Complete protection from chemicals and gases
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics introduces its first Level B hazmat suit, the ONESuit Shield. Certified by the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA) 1992 standard for protection against chemical splash and 1994 class 2 standard, the suit assures users maximum protection against chemical and biological agents, according to the company. Firefighters looking for increased mobility with uncompromised protection can utilize ONESuit for protection from harmful agents in both vapor and splash form. With this Level B suit, first responders' self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) are worn outside the suit for protection during CBRN or chemical splash exposure. The ONESuit Shield’s unique face mask interface is seamlessly engineered for an air-tight configuration, assuring maximum protection. The lightweight design enhances comfort for firefighters, law enforcement, and other emergency responders working in the hot zone. All ONESuit products feature a lightweight, single-skin design, along with Saint-Gobain’s state-of-the-art protective material, making them more flexible, for maximum comfort and maneuverability, according to the company. In addition to the new ONESuit Shield, the company’s line of products include ONESuit Pro, the industry’s most affordable hazmat suit certified to the NFPA 1991 standard,  ONESuit Flash, ONESuit Gard, and ONEGlove Hazmat.
