Health Care & PPE
Healthcare PPE is where we supply specific protective equipment for health care workers that treat patients with infectious diseases such as the now prevalent COVID-19. This protective equipment assures the health care worker his/her protection from droplets from coughs, sneezes or other bodily fluids discharged from infected patients and contaminated surfaces that might infect them.
We provide a varied range of products to select from which covers every hazardous situation a health care worker might have to cope with.
We recommend the two most common types of medical gloves which are examination gloves and surgical gloves. Examination gloves are used when the health worker is visiting a patient which could be then disposed once used. Manufactured from materials including Nitrile, vinyl, or latex they are available in multi-unit packaging for easy access. They are non-sterile devices, ambidextrous and with a smaller variety size such as XS, S, M, L, XL. Generally, examination gloves are usually thin (0.09 mm at fingertip) and their length allows low covering of the wrist (around 25 cm length).
These are protective equipment worn during medical invasive procedures to prevent patient contamination and exposure to potentially infectious material. Surgical gloves are by definition sterile and right and left-handed, manufactured with either latex or non-latex. They are packed at the pair level and have a wider variety of size from 5.5 up to 9. Surgical gloves are usually thicker.
Medical Masks (often referred to as surgical masks)
Eye Protection - Safety Goggles
Medical masks, which is also known as surgical masks, but is mostly referred as, surgical masks. It is designed to cover the nose, mouth and chin of the wearer thereby protecting him/her from bacteria and infectious agents transmitted by large-particle droplets from the wearer’s mouth and nose when the wearer exhales.
The eyes are the most complex and fragile parts of our body. Each day, more than 600 people worldwide sustain eye injuries during their work. Thanks to a good pair of safety glasses, these injuries could be prevented. Do you come into contact with bright light or infrared radiation? Then welding goggles or a shield offer the ideal protection! Safety goggles are usually classified into categories II and III depends on its application to different hazards, such as chemical splashes, laser radiation, and flying debris
Hearing Protection - Safety Ear-Muffs and Ear Plugs
Safety Visors (face shields)
The EU PPE Directive also covers hearing protection since workplace noise is also a significant health risk to humans. Hence, safety ear-muffs and earplugs placed in the EU market shall comply with the PPE Directive. However, earplugs that are not designed to protect against hazards, such as earplugs for sleeping, flying, or swimming are not considered as personal protective equipment. Therefore, for these specific products, it is not necessary to comply with PPE Directive.
Face shield should cover the front and sides of the wearer’s face extending its protection to both eyes and other facial areas. These come in two forms as reusable and disposable. As with goggles, safety visors with clear lenses and marked with the number “3” to indicate protections against droplets or splashes of liquids may be considered suitable for use against COVID-19
Head and scalp protection - Helmets
Medical gowns, aprons or chemical (biological) protective clothing (CPC) is used mainly for body protection of health workers who are treating patients with infectious diseases. www.medtecheurope.org Page 10 of 15 The ECDC recommends wearing at least long-sleeved water-resistant clothing to prevent body contamination. This particular PPE item does not need to be sterile unless it is used in a sterile environment (e.g. operating room).
The protective equipment supplied to safe guard the worker from head injuries. We have different sizes, specifications and types that can be used in any workplace condition. In the light of developments in modern technology, we are able to supply different options and elements, adjustable interior harness and comfortable sweatbands) that you may require.
Chemical (biological) Protective Clothing
The protective equipment worn by surgeons during surgeries and is commonly characterized by long sleeves with cuffs, attached waists and neck ties, adjustable neckline with yellow hook-and loop style neck binding. Below are the standards of our surgical gowns.
This protective equipment provides cover to the wearer against chemicals and potentially infectious material. It also protects the environment from the same infectious chemicals and materials.
