A ventilation system is included as standard. For the safety of the wearer, it provides a constant level of overpressure inside the suit. The Regulating valve has 3 ventilation rates (2, 30 and 100 l/min) plus zero/off position and is an option also available in a passthrough version for use with external air supply. Encapsulating suits have two overpressure valves in the back of the hood. Non-encapsulating suits have one overpressure valve on the chest. Read more about Suit Ventilation.
