Will this protect from Ebola or Ebola outbreak?1 answer
This suit will protect you from just about anything. However, it's part of a professional hazardous environment entry system that would also include a full SCBA system, decontamination station, and extensive training on hazmat entry.
When i buy this suit will i have to buy like oxygen tanks, a filter disk, or gloves?1 answer
The Level A suits are completely sealed once they are donned. A Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) is a requirement. The idea being to keep harmful elements outside the confines of the suit. Unfortunately, this also means no way to get air. Kind of like being sealed up in a plastic bag. Fun for a few minutes, but then…
The usual breathing time provided by an SCBA is about 25-30 min under ideal conditions. Then the suit has to come off. Not a lot of time. Good for haz mat spills or tank cars leaking and in need of a quick fix. Not very practical for most low intensity sort of hazards. Gloves are included with the suit. 2 layers of high tech protection.
Does this protect people from radiation?1 answer
This suit will protect from Alpha and Beta Radiation as it's fully encapsulated and must be used with an SCBA (other wise you wont be able to breathe). It will not protect from Gamma and X Radiation.
