Isolator Half Suit

The isolator half suit has been developed by Respirex in cooperation with leading pharmaceutical manufacturers for use within a positive or negative pressure chamber.

The suit incorporates features which allow the wearer to easily access or remove themselves from the garment and which also prevent the suit from collapsing against the wearer during use. Isolator suits are manufactured from a tough, lightweight, non-shedding material which is resistant to most workplace chemicals and sterilising agents and all suit surfaces are smooth for ease of decontamination.

Product Features

  • Low pressure air inlet supplying ventilation to the suit, particularly to the breathing zone (head and face)
  • Hood will not collapse when used in a positive pressure chamber
  • Twin layer body and upper arms provides comfort and flexibility and prevents the suit from collapsing against the wearer in a positive pressure chamber
  • Ample garment size to allow freedom of movement, both stretching and twisting (one size)
  • Twin recessed glove connectors allowing easy initial glove fitting and in-use glove replacement during work activity (locking cuff also available)
  • Clear, flexible 360° hood with a replaceable inner visor for excellent all round vision
  • Low noise suit ventilation
  • Padded neck and shoulder support to reduce garment cling whilst balancing the hood
  • Robust hood and arm hanging support system for ease of donning and doffing
  • Areas liable to high physical wear are reinforced
  • Air system brings breathing and cooling air up the back of the suit to the sleeves and hood 

Note: Isolator suits are built to meet the specific needs of the customer and the requirements of the chamber and are generally bespoke items. If you have a requirement, please contact our sales team who can discuss all of the options available to you.

Air Supply

The air flowing into the garment must conform to EN 12021:2014 Annex A. In the event that partial contamination may exist in the factory ring main from which the suit draws its air supply, a Respirex in-line filter unit should be fitted to the air system; this will prevent the ingression of contamination down to 5 microns in size from entering the garment.
