To address the fact that the primary raw material for making the non-woven fabric for gowns is in short supply, Global Protective Gear developed an innovative new material for making isolation gowns. The lightweight Global Protective Gear Isolation Gown is made with an alternative textile—polyester fabric coated with waterproof material. Since the material is based on actual fabric, the gowns can be washed and reused a limited number of times. As a result, this solution is not only cost-effective but also but helpful for making sure there's adequate protective gear to go around.
Now, Global Protective Gear is supplying a million isolation gowns weekly to hospitals and medical facilities around the world. As well as addressing the current need for AAMI Level 1 or AAMI Level 2 isolation gowns, Global Protective Gear is establishing a new facility for the creation of AAMI Level 3 and 4 gowns.
