With over 100 years of design pioneering, Trellchem hasn’t slowed its pace when it comes to innovations in protective suits. And new advancements keep coming.
One feature that has stayed with Trellchem’s range are the three basic styles in most materials, namely two encapsulated suits (large and standard visor) and a non-encapsulated design.
As the name suggests, the encapsulated style keeps the wearer’s body, head and BA-set entirely within the suit. The non-encapsulated model entails strapping the BA harness to the outside of the suit, and using a separate full face mask.
A wide variety of materials are used. Nomex fabric is often used at the core, covered on both sides by layers of various impermeable materials such as chloroprene, butyl and Viton, along with polymer barrier laminates.
Firefighting professionals may find the VPS-Flash suit of special interest. The flame-resistant suit is fully certified according to the NFPA 1991 standard, complete with the optional chemical flash fire and liquefied gas requirements.
Users have come to expect many special features from Trellchem, such as down-closing zippers, bayonet glove rings with snap-on locking pins, inner booties, tear-off visor film, pass-through and ventilation valves, and much more.
The Trellchem range spans from light-weight splash suits, through heavy-duty industrial and emergency response models, to CBRN suits for tactical squads.
