CPS Protective Suits

Reliable and fully reusable, our gas-tight chemical protective suits provide up to eight hours of protection against unknown hazards such as gases, chemicals, radioactive particles, toxic aerosols and biological agents/liquids.

Our CBRN protective suits, such as the VS 20 SILVERFLASH or the VS 20 SYKAN 4 contain flame retardant para-aramid fibre base fabrics.

The CBRN protective suits according to EN 943-1-2 ET, Level A have a chemicals resistant, gas-tight composite barrier featuring a unique combination of high-performance fluorelastomer and high-performance plastics barrier.

We even use the HPF-HPP barrier technology in our visors and in our fused seams and zips.

All TESIMAX totally encapsulated suits are fully fused.

Chemical protective clothing – types.

For all activities in the field of NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) requiring special (chemical) protective clothing, we offer special solutions with a unique modular design:

Work and emergency assistance in the hazard areas with a very high hazard potential (Type 1, e.g. VS 5 and VS 20 series)
Measurement and monitoring tasks at the perimeter of hazard areas with a manageable hazard potential (Types 2 and 3, e.g. ESK series S3–S5 PE)
Tasks with a low hazard potential, such as decontamination (Types 3–6, e.g. ESK series ESK 1 PE, ESK 1 T plus, ESK 1 T)

Chemical protective clothing – applications.

We manufacture chemical protective suits for fire brigades, with built-in full-face masks for industry and military, suits with forced ventilation, training suits, contamination protection clothing for fire brigades and nuclear installations, and light chemical protective clothing for industry and civil authorities (disaster relief, police, fire and disaster prevention).

Chemical protective clothing – standards.

The protection suits are described and approved as per European standard DIN EN 943-1-2 “Performance requirements for gas-tight (Type 1) chemical protection suits for emergency teams (ET)”. Both standard EN 943-2 and German national Rule 189 of the employers’ liability insurance association (BG) “Use of protective clothing”, which is often applied to CPS, distinguish between:

Type 1a (breathing air supply worn inside the suit)
Type 1b (breathing air supply external to the suit)
Type 1c (only approved for industry, with permanent forced ventilation)

In addition, the protective suits are categorized according to their usage frequency:

Reusable protective suits
Limited use (disposable) protective suits.

But the universal “weapon” in the arsenal of a fire brigade is the reusable gas-tight Type 1a chemical protective suit (CPS), such as the VS 5 and VS 20 series suits, which feature breathing air supply worn inside the suit (e.g. series F-AU 1 forced ventilation systems). It protects emergency responders from hazardous substances. In addition to their superior chemicals and mechanical resistance, these models also withstand explosive flame and chilled media.
