MicroMAX® NS Cool Suit

The unique Lakeland Cool Suit range is lakeland innovation in action. Composite suits combine protective fabrics with breathable Safegard fabric for breathability and comfort. Advance and Advance Plus versions offer Type 4 protection with breathability. The MicroMAX® NS Cool Suit offers users the optimum combination of superior protection and high comfort for Type 5 & 6 applications The critical protective parts of the garment – the front, the hood, the legs and arms, are constructed of MicroMAX® NS fabric – excellent dust and liquid repellency, whilst the back panel uses blue Safegard® materials for breathability. This the user gets the best of both worlds. In addition seams are bound with blue CPE for added strength and protection.

MicroMAX® Cool Suits use two different types of fabrics
to optimise protection AND comfort. The panel of Safegard
materials on the back of the garment has a lower protection
level than the rest of the garment. For this reason users
should ensure there application will not result in a heavy
contamination to the back of the suit. This especially
applies to Cool Suit Advance and Advance Plus
which offer Type 4 protection.​​

Below are the data for physical properties, penetration and repellency for Type 6 garments and EN 14126 penetration data for protection against biological and infectious agents. Both​​ Safegard®​​ and MicroMAX®​​ data - along with data for Flashspun Polyethylene – the third fabric type commonly used for Type 5 & 6 coveralls – for comparative purposes.

The table above shows the result of standard CE​​ certification required mechanical strength tests on fabrics and seams to provide a general profile of the garment mechanical properties. These are a reflection of controlled lab tests and actual performance of nonwoven fabrics and films may vary. For more​​ detail on each of these tests please see the page at CE Certification and Marking.

 

Breathability and Comfort Factors

 

 

Micromax NS, TS
Coolsuit

The best measure of comfort is simple air permeability. This is the property of the fabric to allow air to pass through it easily so that air is exchanged and heat and moisture can be​​ expelled from inside the suit.

Air Permeability

CFM- Cubic feet per minute

<0.5

A commonly used alternative measure is MVTR (Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate). This is the tendency for the fabric to allow moisture vapour to pass through​​ the fabric and theoretically this affects comfort… though there is little evidence of any real effect over time. Safegard is not tested as it features high air permeability making MVTR irrelevant.

MVTR

Grams/hour/M2​​ at 37.7oV

119.3

Note: a further effect on comfort is the cut and fit of the garment. Selecting the correct size is important both for durability and comfort. Lakeland coveralls use the unique “Super-B” style combining three key factors to make a better​​ fitting garment allowing greater freedom of movement and increased comfort.​​

Butanol-1

Class 3 / 2

Repellency testing is required on fabrics used for Type 6 garments and reflects the fabrics tendency to repel the specified liquids at an​​ angle of 45o. The test shows a percentage of the a specific volume of the liquid which rolls off the fabric (i.e. is repelled) and the percentage which penetrates through. The missing percentage has been absorbed into the fabric. Note that any fabric will​​ absorb liquid only until saturation at which point the liquid will pass through immediately. This point is not indicated by the test.​​
