Light and gastight: Dräger CPS 5900

Lübeck - As an alternative to the known reusable protective suits, Dräger has developed the new CPS 5900. The limited use suit easily meets and exceeds European and International standards of protection.

Choosing the correct protective clothing is key when working with dangerous substances or hazardous goods. The new CPS 5900 Dräger offers a lightweight, gastight protective suit that protects against many industrial chemicals. The single exposure protective suit was developed for low-risk situations such as control measurements or the transfer of toxic substances without risk of explosion. With its protective function, the new limited use suit meets the International requirements of firefighting, rescue services and industries.The CPS 5900 has been certified in accordance with EN 943 part 1 & 2 (ET), NFPA 1994 and the SOLAS Convention

Maximum protection with high comfort
The comfort of the protective suit affects the physical and psychological capacity of the user. The CPS 5900 provides high freedom of movement through its flexible material and has a hip strap for size adjustment. All personal protective gear is worn inside the one-piece suit. Through the flexible two-layer visor, the wearer has a nearly natural field of vision.

The zipper of the CPS 5900 is protected from external influences by a double flap with continuous Velcro and allows for easy dressing and undressing. The integrated gastight socks with splash guard also ensure safety.

Dräger supplies the gastight CPS 5900 suit with a dual glove system, consisting of inner gloves with a laminated barrier against chemicals and elastic outer gloves made from butyl. The gloves are secured with a locking cuff on the suit so the wearer can exchange the gloves if necessary. The Dräger CPS 5900 is available in five different sizes: 1.50 m to 2.10 m height (4'9 to 6'8 feet) (S, M, L, XL, XXL).

Should the air provided by the compressed air breathing apparatus be insufficient for an entire exercise, the device can be attached to an external source of air via the Air-Connect integrated in the CPS 5900 PT.

The CPS 5900 is manufactured by Dräger Safety AG & Co. KGaA.
