MicroMAX® TS Cool Suit Advance

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. Cool Suit Advance brings the innovative Cool Suit design to Type 4 protection. The breathable back panel is covered by a panel of MicroMAX® NS and sealed at the top and sides, leaving the generous overlap open to allow breathability. Seams are stitched and taped for a fully sealed seam.

Additonal Notes

Combination of MicroMAX® TS coverall with
breathable back panel.
Taped seam means a fully sealed seam
against liquid and dust ingress.

Type 4 applications where a higher comfort level is required.
Pharmaceutical manufacture
Electronics manufacture
Paint- spray applications
Low-level insecticide / pesticide spraying
Wet applications in GRP manufacture
Boat building
Wind blade manufacture
Pharmaceutical manufacture
General maintenance and cleaning applications
Scene of Crime Operations
Low hazard Emergency response applications

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.​​ 

Packaging:  Individually vaccum packed

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

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


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.


Grams/hour/M2​​ at 37.7oV


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.​​ 


Chemical Repellency Data (penetration / repellency)

Sulphuric Acid 30%

Class 3 / 2


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.​​
