Coveralls offer full-body protection from a variety of hazardous materials on the job. At PalmFlex, we carry many different types of coveralls that cater to a range of tasks and environments. We’ve broken them down below to make it easy to figure out the best coveralls for your needs – product recommendations included.
If you work in a cleanroom, lab, or other environment exposed to hazardous chemicals, you will need coveralls that can protect your skin and personal clothing from contamination.
We recommend International Enviroguard’s line of ChemSplash coveralls, which are designed to protect against chemical splash and toxic particles. They are available in four styles: elastic wrists, elastic wrists & ankles, with hood, and with hood & boots.
Depending on the coverage and fit you prefer, one of these styles will be the perfect choice to keep you protected from chemicals.
If your work exposes you to water or other liquids, such as in food processing or outdoor construction, you’ll want coveralls that can keep you dry to stay comfortable and productive.
We recommend Enviroguard’s Tyvek-Like Liquid Resistant Coveralls, or for top-to-bottom protection, their Liquid Resistant Coveralls with Hood & Boots. These coveralls are designed with cutting-edge lamination technology that combines non-woven fabric with microporous film.
The result? A fabric with a superior liquid barrier, stronger tear resistance, and less lint compared to other fabrics.
For demanding applications such as assembly or heavy construction, consider getting coveralls with a higher gram material to increase durability.
We recommend Safety Zone 60 Gram Tyvek-Like Coveralls with Hood & Elastic Wrists (also available with boots). They are nearly twice as thick as your average coveralls, meaning they can withstand much more wear and tear.
In spite of this, they are made of breathable fabric so you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for durability. If your work is rigorous and/or dangerous, the investment in high quality PPE is worth it.
For workers exposed to fire, such as in the welding or oil and gas industry, coveralls that offer fire resistance are essential safety wear.
We suggest the Majestic FR BLAZETEX Coveralls (also available with a hood). They are constructed of a strong SMS material and a flame retardant tri-laminate polypropylene, which makes them compliant with the NFPA 701 standard for flame resistant testing.
This material also offers breathability so you can stay cool while the fire gets hot.
Some people, such as mechanics and warehouse workers, prefer coveralls that they can wear again and again.
For this, we recommend Portwest’s line of cotton coveralls. They are machine washable, moisture-wicking, environmentally friendly, and long-lasting. Their Euro Work Poly/Cotton Coveralls in particular are a customer favorite for their comfort and durability at an affordable price.
Choose from four colors: navy, green, royal blue, and red.
