Ruggedized Class 3 CBRN Protective Suit
Blauer’s RC3™ ensemble is purpose designed to protect wearers against a broad range of CBRNe threats including liquid and vapor chemicals, radiological and biological particulates, and liquid chemical splash during physically demanding tactical entries, confined space rescue, and US&R missions.
The RC3 ensemble is made with GORE® CHEMPAK® Selectively Permeable fabrics to provide rugged protection against a broad range of challenge agents while remaining highly breathable for lower heat stress on the wearer during extended response operations. The RC3 ensemble was developed in response to current users of Blauer’s XRT suit (NFPA 1994 Class 3) who requested a more durable fabric and incorporation of reinforcing fabrics and padding at critical stress points to extend into more demanding mission profiles. Like all other Blauer Homeland Defender® ensembles, the RC3 is designed as a one-piece coverall with integrated gloves and booties, a liquid and vapor resistant zipper and storm fly, and integrated hood with a chlorobutyl face seal for use with approved APR/PAPR masks. The suit is self-sealing and requires no chemical tape.
