Note: The use of a Breathing Apparatus set is required for the 850 Series Suit and recommended for the 750 Series Suit.
*N/A indicates suit is not designed for the specified use. For example, the 150 Series is not designed for Total Flame/Fire Entry.
Breathing apparatus is required for the Kiln and Entry suits, and is optional for the Proximity and Approach suits. CPA, however, recommends that Proximity suits be ordered with breathing apparatus accommodation. ALWAYS have two people suited with Fire Entry, Kiln and Proximity suits to work in relays and to aid each other.
Personnel should wear fire resistant garments under the suit, including long sleeved shirt and full-length pants. See our "Related Products" section at the bottom of this page.
Suit sizing is based on the physical measurements of the wearer. For best fit, measurements should be taken over the clothes worn under a protective suit.
If the physical measurements of the wearer are outside of the standard sizes listed, suits with custom measurements and design modifications are available upon request.
Fit: Due to the layers of insulation and technology involved in high temperature protection, the NXP Proximity, Kiln and Fire Entry suits are designed to fit loosely. Each suit size is designed to accommodate a range of personnel physical dimensions. Suit construction is based on standard measurements. Some variation in fabrication may occur.
Industries: Stand-By Operations in Oil Tankers, Offshore Drilling Wells and Platforms, Petrochemical and Refining, Military and Homeland Security, Ships, Power Generation, Steel, Lab and Testing Facilities.
NFPA 1851 recommends the mandatory retirement of Proximity (aluminized) suits 5 years after the date of manufacture. This does not mean the suit will or should remain in service the full 5 years. Early replacement may be required if the suit is damaged.
