CBRN Protection Suit Seal For Leak Prevention

Avon Protection : 30 November, 2010  (New Product)
Combined protective suit and mask integrity for CBRN suits achieved with the class 2 suit seal from Avon Protection
CBRN Protection Suit Seal For Leak Prevention
A significant challenge to full CBRN body protection, when wearing both a protective suit and mask, is the provision of an accurate and agent proof seal between these two vital means of defence.

This fundamental and potentially dangerous compromise has now been successfully overcome by Avon Protection with the introduction of its new Class 2 Suit Seal. This will offer CBRN suit manufacturers the capability to add a significantly new dimension in protection to customers using a suit and mask combination.

Capitalising on its proven FM53 Protective Hood and mask sealing capabilities, Avon’s Class 2 Suit Seal delivers a new standard in protection from chemical or liquid agents to military and law enforcement force personnel. The highly flexible Avon suit seal is made from its unique chlorobutyl rubber blend for wearer CBRN resistance so it is easy to don and utilises a unique “airbag” fitting system to ensure a totally airtight and liquid-proof seal. The suit seal is also supplied as a standalone product for manufactures to build into their suit ranges particularly as a bespoke option for Avon masks. This offers manufacturers the added ability to enhance their after –sales services by offering the seal as an upgrade for existing customers’ protective suit stocks, as required.

The Class 2 Suit Seal is designed to economically compliment all types of CBRN suit. In fact a number of suit designs have already achieved improved performance using the Avon seal.


According to John Penton, Avon Protection’s Market Development Manager, “The respective protections offered by CBRN suits and masks are not always fully integrated, resulting in an insufficient seal- potentially exposing the wearer to chemical agent vapour or liquid ingress. Our fully tested and flexible suit seal, however, ensures a complete seal around the suit hood and mask, including the mask’s visor and chin fitting, without compromising the performance of the mask in any way. And as the technology is derived from our position as the global market leaders in CBRN mask design, engineering and manufacture, suit manufacturers and end users of mask and suit combinations are assured of the highest standard in safety, comfort and protection.”
