​Interceptor® is Lakeland’s flagship fully encapsulated Type 1a gas-tight chemical protective suit. 

Note: Interceptor is now available only in orange until further notice. It will be replaced by the new Interceptor Plus once CE certified

Interceptor® is the apex of Lakeland Industries’ chemical protective clothing range. Certified to both the CE EN 943-1&2 standards and to the equivalent US NFPA standards, Interceptor Plus is available in front and rear entry versions and with standard or wide vision visors.

The hi-tech multi-layer fabric, developed by lakeland, is soft, light and flexible and yet features a high barrier against a wide array of hazardous chemicals - yet is 15% lighter than major competitor options

Download Lakeland’s Guide to the Selection of Chemical Protective Clothing to assist in improved selection of the best suit for the job and for permeation and physical properties comparisons.

Every Interceptor garment undergoes an internal pressure test to confirm leak tightness before leaving the Lakeland factory.

Interceptor® garments are flammable and should not be used around heat, flames or sparks. For applications where chemical protection is worn over FR protective clothing, in applications with risk of contact with flames or heat or in high risk explosive atmospheres, consider using Pyrolon® garments rather than Pyrolon®. Selection of the appropriate garment for an application is the final responsibility of the user and should be based on a comprehensive risk assessment conducted by a suitably qualified safety professional. Refer to the Lakeland "Guide to Chemical Suit Selection" for guidance.
