Proven Protection For Biohazard Scenarios And Contamination Control.

ProVent 10,000 is a patented microporous film composite fabric that offers a wide range of barrier protection against blood-borne pathogens, body fluids and viral threats. It passes both ASTM F1670 blood penetration and ASTM F1671 viral penetration tests. The high moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) of ProVent 10,000 results in a more comfortable garment ideal for biohazard work applications.

ProVent 10,000 Style Details

  • Patented ProVent 10,000 fabric passes both ASTM F1670 blood penetration and ASTM F1671 viral penetration tests.
  • ProVent 10,000 fabric protects against Ebola and other biohazards, with a high moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) for greater comfort.
  • Storm flap with pressure sensitive tape closure for additional protection.
  • Skid-resistant attached shoe/boot covers enhance worker safety.
  • ProVent 10,000 fabric is blue on one side, white on the other – garments may be ordered with either color on the outside (shown here in white).
  • Applications: Patient care and other healthcare settings, lab and diagnostic services, pharmacy work, autopsies, mortuary services.

New Guidelines from OSHA and the CDC

Bloodborne pathogen size comparison.

OSHA and the CDC have issued a comprehensive PPE guidance document for workers who may be exposed to potentially infected blood and body fluids. Details include:

  • The guidance is in a matrix format and identifies the type and level of PPE performance.
  • It includes protective gowns and coveralls, described as fluid resistant or impermeable.
  • Fluid resistant garments are specified where the risk of exposure to blood and body fluids is low. Fluid resistant garments are defined as those with fabrics and seams that meet certain industry standards for liquid repellency.
  • Impermeable garments are specified for scenarios with high exposure risk. Impermeable garment definition references industry standards and test methods for blood and viral penetration resistance under pressure.
  • Protection is achieved by a system of components. In addition to protective apparel, a proper system includes respiratory protection consistent with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134, plus eye and face protection, examination gloves, boot/shoe covers and over aprons.
