Demron-W Suit gets SEI Class 2
Dec '11
Radiation Shield Technologies (RST) announced its patented Demron-W CBRN Class 2 suit received two key certifications that further solidify its market leadership as the only full-body suit providing anti-nuclear and multi-hazard protection from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents.

The suit, made with the Demron technology currently used in the nuclear radiation cleanups following the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, is noted by governments and first responder organizations worldwide for its unique life-saving benefits.

Specifically, the anti-nuclear Demron-W suit received Safety Equipment Institute (SEI) Class 2 certification under the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) 1997-2007 Standard on Protective Ensembles for First Responders to Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Terrorism Incidents.

It also received ISO 8194 certification for radiation protection clothing that guards against radioactive contamination. Of the comparable Class 2 certified suits, RST's Demron-W suit is the only suit that has proved effective against gamma radiation. View the complete CBRN terrorism ensemble at the following link:

Ronald DeMeo, M.D., president and CEO of RST, donated more than 200 Demron Full-Body Suits and Torso Vests to help protect the first responders and nuclear workers in the Fukushima nuclear cleanups. After the introduction and evaluation of RST's technology, RST's suit proved to be the most effective against gamma radiation and has been critical in the ongoing cleanup.

“We have all learned a lot while working with Japanese authorities to donate our life-saving Demron technologies and support the nuclear cleanup efforts,” said Dr. DeMeo, the surgeon, entrepreneur and inventor who created Demron.”

“We're learning that addressing nuclear threats and mitigating the exposure risks is a new science. In the case of Japan, Demron is proving on the field and in tests to be the only technology of its kind to provide the necessary radiation protection. In addition to protecting the workers, Demron is being used in everything from cleaning the soil to lining the equipment.”

Kevin Wang, president with PowerPlus Cleaning Solutions, who is leading the radiation cleanup efforts in Japan, echoed Dr. DeMeo's words: “We have tested and measured the protection Demron provides, and Demron is the only gear that we trust one hundred percent to protect our team and equipment for the cleanup process in Japan. Our equipment has registered dangerous radiation levels in zones that Japanese officials had determined were 'clean.'

Radiation levels are dangerously high at this point, and without Demron, we would not be able to calibrate our equipment, take accurate readings of radiation levels or safely perform our work. After comparing Demron with other gear available , it's clear that Demron is the absolute best and only choice because it is the only gear that provides the necessary radiation protection. It's also flexible, lightweight and adaptable for multiple uses. We stand by Demron.”
