NEW DISPOSABLE FIRE RETARDENT COVERALLS FROM LAKELAND

Lakeland Industries Inc, one of the largest manufacturers of industrial protective clothing in the world celebrated the launch of Lakeland Industries Europe at the Paris Expoprotection exhibition by winning two special innovation awards in the New Products Showcase.

Both awards were for fire retardant coveralls. Pyrolon XT is a new disposable coverall designed to offer Type 6 splash protection over a thermal protective garment without reducing total thermal protection, whilst Pyrolon DTP is the worlds first disposable thermal protective coverall offering protection equivalent to high quality woven fire protective suits. Both were commended for design and innovation.

Until now Lakeland products have been available only in the US and Canada. Lakeland Industries Europe is the new sales and distribution business set up to sell the company’s wide range of protective clothing throughout Europe. A range that includes disposable protective clothing, full chemical suits, fire protective clothing, clean room clothing and specialist hand protection.

With a new warehouse and office opening in the UK in February, Lakeland aim to be carrying European stock in March and can deliver product direct to customers from their three Chinese factories. They would like to hear from any safety companies interested in distributing their products.

Pyrolon XT & DTP will be featured on lakeland's A+A stand - Hall 5 stand G23. Those requiring more information should contact Lakeland on +44 1430 478140 (Fax +44 1430 478144 – e- europe@lakeland.com.
