Splash-And-Flash Protection For Petrochemical Environments.

Frontline® 300 is ideal for petro-chemical line break situations. This innovative garment was developed with detailed input from petrochemical Safety Officers. It offers excellent radiant heat protection. And with comparable protection to Kappler's Zytron® 300 chemical apparel, Frontline 300 provides excellent holdout for the most common petrochemical hazards.

The ensemble garment design with hood, jacket and bib pants provides excellent flexibility. The hood and jacket can be removed when not in the hot zone, thereby allowing the individual to ventilate. As with all Kappler apparel, this ensemble is a multi-use, single exposure garment.

Frontline 300 Style Details

  • Three-way protection for chemical, flash-fire and radiant heat.
  • Ideal for petrochemical line break operations – developed with input from petrochemical safety officers.
  • Proven with demanding Pyroman Thermal Manikin testing.
  • Coverall and ensemble styles offer flexibility for a wide variety of work situations.
  • Applications: Petrochemical operations, line maintenance, tank cleaning, refueling situations

Frontline 300 Key Benefits

10 Seconds Of Video That Could Save Your Life!

The Pyroman Thermal Manikin test dramatically illustrates how Kappler technology improves user survivability.

Because of Kappler’s commitment to user survivability, Frontline garments designed to protect against a chemical flash-fire are subjected to intense testing in order to simulate real-world exposure. Chemical flash-fires are known to generate heat up to 1900º F. The Pyroman Thermal Manikin test at North Carolina State University produces this environment for 6 seconds in order to predict a percentage of body burn a wearer might experience. Sensors on the manikin indicate not only the area of the body affected, but also predict severity of the burn. The Frontline 500 encapsulating suit performed exceptionally well in both measurements, with 0% body burn indicated. The Frontline 300 ensemble garment indicated less than 1% body burn.
