In preparation for the UEFA EURO 2012, the National Headquarters of the State Fire Service in Warsaw, Poland will upgrade to the Trellchem® VPS suit from Trelleborg Protective Products as their standard type 1a (Level A), fully encapsulated chemical protective suit for their first responders.
UEFA EURO 2012, the 14th United European Football Association’s championship, will be held in and jointly hosted by Poland and Ukraine from 8 June to 1 July 2012. Trellchem® VPS suits will be distributed to Gdansk, Poznan, Warsaw and Wroclaw where matches will be played, as well as other Polish cities. The suits will ‘play’ a key role to secure the fire service’s counter terrorism capability during the championship.
Senior Sales and Product Manager, Trelleborg Protective Products AB, John Eklund, says: “The Trellchem® VPS suit was selected by the National Headquarters of the State Fire Service due to its ability to withstand harsh environments combined with its compliance to the stringent regulations and standards applying to protective suit materials and the suits themselves. In addition, as the Trellchem® VPS has only a single layer with superior abrasion resistance it can be donned quickly, allowing hazmat responders to perform their challenging jobs with greater functionality and safety.”
Trellchem® VPS has full certification to EN 943:2 (edition 2002). The material and complete suits are also compliant to other standards and regulations. It meets the requirements set out in EN 1073-2 for protection against radioactive particles and those in EN 14126 for protection against bio-hazards/infective agents, and is also fully certified to the stringent American standard NFPA 1991 (edition 2005). Trellchem® VPS suit is a unique reusable, single skin, one layer suit made of a garment material developed and produced by Trelleborg Protective Products.
