Kappler Supplied by Delta Health and Safety

Kappler Protective Clothing

 

Kappler started in Guntersville, Alabama, with just eight employees and six sewing machines in 1976. While George Kappler, the company’s founder, is still active within the business, his daughter Laura Kay runs it.

 

Kappler is now certified as a Woman-Owned Small Business in the US and continues to grow.

Delta Health and Safety Brings Kappler to South Africa

 

In 1995 Delta Health and Safety proudly brought disposable chemical suits to Southern Africa.

 

This started a successful partnership with Kappler, who continues to supply high-quality chemical PPE to SA.

 

Choosing Your Suit

 

Various fabrics, designs and seams are effective in different environments. Therefore, it is crucial to choose the correct suit to ensure end-user protection. Delta Health and Safety details the most important considerations so you can make the right choice.

Protective Fabric

 

Kappler has tested its fabrics for resistance to certain chemicals. Specific materials are appropriate for use around some substances and not others. Delta Health and Safety stocks suits in Kappler’s Zytron and Frontline fabrics.

 

Zytron

Frontline 300

  • Chemical holdout and strong physical properties.
  • Affordable.
  • Zytron 200 for where rip-out is a concern.
  • Zytron 300 for applications with the potential of a chemical splash.
  • Zytron 500 is based on the technology that survived eight hours against the ASTM F1001 test battery with no breakthrough.
  • ISO 17492

Seam Strength

 

The strength of the seams on safety garments is vitally important. A gap or even just a loose thread can leave the end-user open to exposure. Kappler offers four different seam types for its protective garments.

 

Structure

Application

Serged

Three threads interlock around the edges of two pieces of fabric For particulates plus residual liquids to light splash where there’s no chance for no skin hazard

Bound

Two pieces of fabric joined by a piece of binding and stitched through all layers For particulates plus residual liquids to light splash where skin hazard is involved and moderate splash for non-skin hazards

Heat Sealed / Taped

Serged seam is covered with seam tape and sealed with heat or adhesive For particulates, moderate to heavy splash for skin hazards, and vapour hazards

Ultrasonic

Two fabric pieces ultrasonically welded to create a seam with no needle holes For particulates and light to moderate liquid splash
