Coveralls and overalls are used to cover clothing and are useful for protecting you from machinery, chemicals, dry particulates, sparks and other hazards you may encounter depending on the protection you need. Overalls are a bib style pant offering chest, waist and leg protection. Coveralls offer full body protection, with different strengths and different accessories for example, attached hoods and boots. The main point of both though, is that there is no gap in between the jacket and pants which allows for better protection and to keep clothing from being caught in machinery, snagged or stained. Our adjustable strap overalls are comfortable and also flame retardant, protecting you in environments that may expose you to some sparks. Overalls are commonly used by painters, farmers, train engineers, carpenters, some factory workers and other tradesmen. When it comes to coveralls, there are many different needs or uses. Tyvek is a common choice because the material is very strong and difficult to tear, but can be cut with scissors easily. Tyvek is also highly breathable, light weight and chemical resistant and is often used in laboratories, fiberglass insulation installation and by mechanics. Polypropylene is a good cost efficient choice for a general purpose coverall. Polypropylene coveralls provide dry particulate resistance with excellent breathability.
