From summer 2022, the next generation of our gas- and liquid-tight chemical protective suits (CPS) will be available.

But before we get into the new German-made PPE (see the respective product categories), we want to give you an overview of the various CPS types: For every activity in NBC CPS deployment, different solutions are available in our unique modular system.
