Push-Fit Glove Connection – for Lakeland ChemMAX Clothing
“Push-Fit” Glove Connection System for ChemMax
Lakeland’s “Push-Fit” glove connection system for ChemMax chemical protective coveralls is a new and innovative way to connect a range of chemical gloves to ChemMax 1,2 and 3 with a completely liquid-proof seal.
Alternatively some users rely on a double-cuff on the garment. Perhaps a better solution, but in this case there is no seal and the risk remains that a liquid can run between the layers and penetrate through to the wearers skin.Currently, users commonly use an adhesive tape to attempt to seal the connection between glove and sleeve. This is uncertain and haphazard – it is impossible to know whether a seal has been achieved until it is too late! It is also costly with very little control over how much tape is used.
Using two concentric rings, the Push-Fit glove system provides a strong seal between glove and garment sleeve.
Furthermore, the system is certified to Type 3 with ChemMAX 1, 2 and 3 coveralls having been successfully tested to the Type 3 jet-spray test in which a jet of liquid was sprayed specifically at the join and no penetration was apparent.
The Push-Fit glove connection is also strong – pull testing has achieved results in well excess of 200N on all three garments.
