Personal protective equipment (PPE) fabrics


Protective equipment may be worn for job-related occupational safety and health purposes, and also for sports and other recreational activities.

Hazards exist in every workplace in several different forms: sharp edges, falling objects and sparks, chemicals, noise, fire and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. The best way to protect employees is controlling a hazard at its source. Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as “PPE”, is worn to minimize exposure to a variety of hazards.

Examples of PPE include such items as gloves, foot and eye protection, protective hearing devices (earplugs, muffs), hard hats, respirators and full body suits.

PPE fabrics are commonly used by the army, fire service and police. They serve as workwear, chemical suits or extreme temperature garments. They can be high visibility, breathable, fire retardant and anti-static.

Flame-resistant fabrics are essential where protection from direct flame, molten metal, hot/flammable liquids, or arc flash are strict requirements.

Chemical/Biological Protective Clothing System (CPCS) fabrics provide a high level of protection against a wide range of toxic industrial chemicals, chemical and biological agents.

Wirtex Workwear Fabrics offers a wide range of PPE fabrics such as flame retardant,acid proof and Antistatic.
