QTY

These orange Type 5/6 Lakeland SafeGard 76 disposable coveralls are made from a breathable SMMS fabric with bound seams for superior strength, comfort and promotion of air permeability.

  • Highly breathable so comfortable to wear
  • Excellent protection against dry particles and splashes of liquids

These orange Lakeland SafeGard 76 disposable asbestos coveralls are made from a breathable SMMS fabric with bound seams for superior strength, comfort and promotion of air permeability. These disposable coveralls provide Type 5/6 protection.

 

  • Highly breathable so comfortable to wear
  • Excellent protection against dry particles and splashes of liquids
  • These disposable asbestos coveralls are constructed with a 55gsm 4-layer SMMS fabric – a double layer of melt-blown fibre (‘MM’) to enhance hazardous dust protection while maintaining a high level of comfort
  • The air permeability of this coverall is 10 times higher than other materials such as flash-spun polyethylene and microporous film laminate, resulting in much higher comfort levels
  • Air permeability reduces the ‘bellows effect’ (the tendency to create suction of air and dust particles in the seam holes, cuffs, ankles and zip)
  • Superior strong and durable bound seams offer additional protection against dust, liquid ingress*
  • Super-B style design – this coverall has been developed for a superior fit, wearability and durability
  • A crotch gusset is included to reduce incidence of burst crotch and improve durability
  • To increase visibility, this Lakeland general purpose coverall is a distinctive orange colour for additional safety
  • Lakeland SafeGard 76 asbestos coveralls are also available in blue and white
  • All Lakeland coveralls are suitable for asbestos handling and removal

 

Typical applications include:

  • Asbestos handling and removal
  • “Dry” applications in fibreglass manufacturing
  • Boatbuilding
  • Windblade or similar manufacturing environments
  • Wood and plastic processing
  • Insulation handling and removal
  • General manufacturing and maintenance
  • Low level / low hazard sprays

Lakeland coverall - strenuous work

Physical factors such as strenuous work?
The physical demands of a task such as climbing ladders, crawling or working in confined spaces, especially if the chemical is highly toxic,  may require higher strength fabric or a specific design, even though permeation analysis and/or the hazard spray type indicate a lighter/more comfortable garment.

Lakeland liquid or gas safety

Liquid or gas?
Liquid would normally suggest a Type 3 or 4 hazard. However, some chemicals have low boiling points, becoming vapour at low temperatures. In such cases a gas-tight suit might be appropriate. Such information can be obtained from Safety Data Sheets.

 

Type 3 vs Type 4 –  the different spray tests

EN 14605 – Type 3: ‘jet’ sprays EN14605 – Type 4: ‘liquid’ sprays

  • Strong, directional jets of liquid spray
  • Results in intense, local pressure on fabric, seams and joins
  • Back-spray will penetrate under, up or behind any loose flaps or joins
  • In finished garment spray test, single jets of liquid are sprayed at ‘potential’ weak areas of suit (seams, crotch, zip flap ect.)
  • Wider, less pressurised liquid sprays
  • Results in saturation of fabric (so sealed seams required) but no pressure on garment, seams or joins
  • No risk of back-spray penetrating under, up or behind loose flaps or joins
  • In finished garment spray test, four nozzles with general overspray of liquid

 

By identifying that your application is Type 4 only (rather than Type 3), this enables more options for garment design and choice, along with a greater level of comfort.

 

*About bound seams
The seam is wrapped with a folded strip of similar or stronger material and chain-stitched through all five layers in a single operation. This results in a tougher seam which also provides improved liquid and particle repellency at the seams as well as a tougher garment all round. A bound seam is not suitable for a chemical suit as it is not liquid tight.

  • 55gsm 4-layer SMMS fabric – a double layer of melt-blown fibre
  • Seams stitched on exterior and bound with coated fabric
  • Fabric air-permeability
  • Super-B ergonomic style pattern
  • Inset sleeves have been included in this coverall
  • Torso has been shaped to body
  • A two piece crotch gusset
  • Distinctive orange colour
  • Suitable for asbestos handling and removing
