NFPA 1999 Certified Single-Use Garment Offers Economical Biohazard Protection.
Introducing ProVent Plus, the only economically priced single-use garment certified to the demanding requirements of NFPA 1999. The use-and-dispose distinction of ProVent Plus means emergency responders and healthcare workers faced with Ebola-infected body fluids and other biohazards can now have proven protection at a fraction of the cost of expensive reusable garments.
In addition to passing the ASTM F1670 blood penetration and ASTM F1671 viral penetration tests, ProVent Plus is a microporous fabric that offers increased comfort due to its high moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR). The garment is certified to NFPA 1999 for use as part of a system of components with other protective equipment including respiratory, eye and face protection, examination gloves, boot/shoe covers and over aprons. ProVent Plus also meets OSHA and CDC guidelines as part of such a protective system.
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:
NFPA certified style includes elastic ankles (NOT attached shoe/boot cover as shown in photo).
