Chemical Protective Clothing
Protection against Hazardous Liquid Chemicals
Type 4: : (EN 14065)
Protection against sprays of liquid chemicals
See below for further information on CE Types 3 & 4
Lakeland offers users wider choice with five fabric options, each with a different level of permeation barrier against a range of chemicals. The result? Safety professionals can more accurately target garment selection at their specific application, both maximising protection and comfort AND minimising cost.
All Lakeland TomteX and ChemMAX Coveralls include design features engineered to enhance protection and comfort:-
- Double zip front fastening with storm flaps
- Cushioned knee-pads for added security and comfort (Not applicable to TomteX or ChemMAX 4)
- Stitched and taped seams for a full seal at all seams
- Lakeland Super-B style garment design for superior fit and freedom of movement

|The key to selection of chemical protective garments relates to assessing the barrier of the garment fabric against specific chemicals in use. See further information below|
For further information on differences between Types 3 & 4 and the implications of permeation testing see Further Information.
|Chemical permeation and Garment Selection|
The first key to chemical suit selection is identifying the suit that provides adequate protection against the chemical used whilst minimising garment weight and cost. The wider Lakeland choice compared to other comparable ranges means better targeting of the coverall to the task.
The table below shows the permeation results against the chemicals listed in EN 6529 (The EN permeation test method) Annex A2 - a list intended to provide a broad range of chemical groups to enable garment comparison and initial fabric selection. The list also includes the Lakeland gas tight coverall Interceptor.
This table can be used as an initial Lakeland garment selector. A more detailed analysis can be made using Lakeland’s full chemical search. For any chemicals not listed contact us and a test can be arranged subject to volume and availability.
Further, the ChemMAX Permeation Table Selector page compares Lakeland garment results for these chemicals with main competitors' comparative products - this graphically demonstrates how lakeland options offer greater choice and better targeted - as well as often lower cost - solutions.
