FHRAM-TEX Anti Contamination Suit

Category: Worker Health & Safety > Personal Protective Equipment > Heat & Cold Protection
Reference # : OST No 1854 Model No : FHRAM

The FRHAM-TEX Cool Suit TM is a one-piece, disposable coverall with a single, front, zip-lock closure. It is constructed of spun-bonded polyester, which is bonded to a butylene/poly hydrophilic film to make the suit breathable and waterproof. The material is designed to allow moisture generated inside the suit to be transmitted through the suit to the outside. A proprietary process is used to heat seal the seams of the suit during manufacturing, which strengthens the integrity of the suit. The FRHAM-TEX Cool SuitTM has no system operations associated with it. It is a coverall type of clothing that is worn by inserting an individual's arms and legs into the suit and closing by the zip-lock closure. There is no secondary waste associated with wearing the suit. Additionally, the FRHAM-TEX Cool Suit TM is certified incineratorable


The strength and durability of the suit also decreases the chances of rips or tears and adds to workers’ safety. Additionally, its waterproofing adds a level of protection that the baseline suit does not.


The technology is limited by heat stress considerations. The FRHAM-TEX Cool Suit is still beneficial in situations requiring waterproofing due to its greater durability than the Tyvek suit. Future development should focus on ways to prevent body heat from building up inside the suit to increase the comfort and efficiency of workers.
