Gas tight suits are fully encapsulating suits providing a full hermetical seal against the environemt in order to protect against hazardous gases and vapours. Gas-Tight suits according to EN 943 are of four variants:-

Type 1a  Gas-Tight encaspulationg suit with fully independant SCBA worn INSIDE the suit
Type 1b Gast-Tight encapsulating suit with fully independant SCBA worn OUTSIDE the suit 
Type 1c  Gas-Tight encapsulating suit with breathable air and positive pressure supplied by a remote airline
Type 2  Non Gas-Tight encapsulating suit with breathable air and positive pressure supplied by a remote airline

 

The standard Interceptor is a Type 1a suit - a gas-tight suit with independant SCBA worn inside the suit.

Interceptor also meets the requirements for EN 943-2 (ET)  - the special standard for gas-tight suits for use by Emergency Teams. The key difference with this standard relates to the requirement for permeation testing of the list of required chemicals against the ZIPPER as well as against the fabric, visor and gloves. 

Gas Tight suits should be pressure tested to ensure leak-tightness regularly as part of a maintenance procedure. Lakeland test kits are available: see further information for instruction on conducting a Pressure Test.
