Healthmark Industries Decontamination Gowns

Decontamination Gowns from Healthmark Industries are designed for use in device reprocessing areas. The Decontamination Gowns meet AAMI PB70 Class 4 requirements for liquid barrier performance while providing a high level of strikethrough resistance in the most vulnerable zone, protecting health care workers from soil and bioburden when cleaning items. The single-use (one person-one day) Decontamination Gowns are comprised of two materials. The upper and lower zones are manufactured of a breathable material that is AAMI PB70 Class 4 that passes ASTM F1670 & F1671 test methods. The middle zone is manufactured of a completely liquid impervious zone, including preventing strikethrough of detergent cleaning solutions, even when physically leaning against sinks or other cleaning baths. The wrap-around Decontamination Gowns (360-degree coverage) come with elastic wrists, thumb loops, neck and waist ties long enough to tie in the front or back. Use of the gowns eliminates the need for a plastic apron or other secondary protection improving worker comfort and dexterity.
