Chemical protective suit

ECOPROTECT spol. s r.o., was established in 1990 as a direct continuation of the specialist division of the former Research Institute of the Rubber and Plastic Technology in the field of the research and development of protective equipment against weapons of mass destruction.

ECOPROTECT has extended its production into the civilian as well as the military sector. For example, the chemical detachment of the Czechoslovakian Army deployed in the Persian Gulf in 1991 was equipped with our products. The chemical detachment of the Army of the Czech Republic sent to Iraq in 2003 was also equipped with our OPCH-90 and OPCH-90 PO chemical splash suits. Some of the members of the UN anti-chemical Inspection Group were equipped with our products.

ECOPROTECT continues to solve the specialised requirements of the Czech Army for protection of the body against both the weapons of mass destruction and industrial pollutants.

Further, ECOPROTECT has been equipping the fire-brigades of the Czech and Slovak Republics for 12 years.

At the moment the OPCH-90 PO chemical splash suit and its derivative, the OPCH-90 POC, are the mainproduction program for the company.

The former is a fully hermetically sealed compressed-air pressure suit designed to be worn with breathing apparatus and a mask under the protective clothing. The OPCH-90 PO is designed to be used by:

  • Fire Brigades and Rescuers in industrial and agricultural accidents, atc.
  • Personnel resolving environmental accidents producing health and environment hazards.
  • Staff in nuclear power stations performing maintenance and repair work.

The suit is produced as a one-piece overall, with the hood incorporating the panoramic-view lens built in. The design of the suit allows for the use of various types of breathing apparatus. The suit opening is sealed by a gas-proof zip fastener. Safety gloves and protective over-boots can be attached to the suit. Two pressure release valves ensure that pressure does not exceed 400 Pa. The OPCH-90 PO suit is made in one universal size, height differences being catered for by built-in elastic braces.

The suit is made from polyamide tissue under a layer of butyl rubber combined with fire resistant signal yellow colour pigment on both sides. The seams are insulated on the out-side by an elastomere blend.

The OPCH-90 PO chemical splash suit has been tested by the Occupation Safety Research Institute, which issued it with an The OPCH-90 PO satifies the requirements of the norms EN 943-1, EN 1073-2, EN 14126.

THE OPCH-90 TRIAL SUIT

The trial version of the OPCH-90 chemical splash suit is intended for use in simulations of accidents and incidents where protective clothing is required. The OPCH-90 POC allows workers to practise both putting the clothing on and carrying-out the tasks required in a real-life incident.

The OPCH-90 POC suit is not intended to be used in real-life situations, although it has the same one-piece construction as the OPCH-90 PO suit. The zip fastener is not gas-proof and the seams are not hermetically sealed. But even during simulations it is essential to use breathing apparatus with the protective mask and use the suit in accordance with the operating instructions.

In order to differentiate the OPCH-90 POC from the OPCH-90 PO it is coloured blue on both outside and inside. Otherwise, it is used just as the OPCH-90 PO suit.

ECOPROTECT has established, documented and implemented quality management system according to ČSN EN ISO 9001:2001, IQ Net - CQS No. CZ - 2110/2004 for development, manufacture, service of chemical protective clothing and sale of personal protective equipment.
