A lined lightweight proximity suit for industrial applications

The X20 Lightweight Proximity Suit is designed for radiant heat protection and minor molten metal splash protection. The X20 Lightweight Proximity Suit is fabricated with a Z-Flex® Aluminized Fiberglass outer shell and is available with your choice of a standard flame retardant cotton liner for lightweight breath-ability or an upgraded neoprene liner for added protection from hot steam, gas, and vapor. 

This lightweight proximity suit can be used in a wide range of industries including foundries, petrochemical plants, processing facilities, and other environments where workers are exposed to extreme temperatures.

All X Series proximity suits are designed to be worn over standard industrial work wear. It is important for users to wear long-sleeve shirts and pants made with non-flammable fibers.
