OPEC CBRNe Stand: B96
OPEC CBRNe to reveal latest first responder garments at ESS
OPEC CBRNe will showcase three innovative garments purpose designed for the first responder market at this year’s Emergency Services Show, held at the NEC in Birmingham from 21-22 September 2022.

With its strong pedigree in CBRN garment design and manufacture, OPEC CBRNe is rapidly expanding into the first responder market, developing industry-leading chemical, biological and anti-viral solutions for police, security, ambulance crews and fire fighters, as well as EOD and tactical response personnel. 

From their new and improved garment range, OPEC CBRNe will be packing their Avocet - which protects against pathogens like COVID-19; the Kite GA - which provides CBRN aerosol protection; and the Osprey undergarment - which offers covert CBRN protection when worn with work attire. 

“Each of our garments offers something a little different for first responders and we have left no stone unturned in our efforts to cater for different emergency scenarios to ensure their overall protection in the workplace,” said newly appointed OPEC CBRNe General Manager, Geoff Rowland. 

"A distinguishing feature across our range is we offer protection without compromising comfort. We recognise that comfort is a key ingredient in successful workplace performance and this design feature helps ensure that wearers of our garments can perform their duties without overheating.” 

OPEC CBRNe have also developed layered protection systems, which enables personnel to apply suit layers which match the chemical threat, whilst delivering enhanced comfort, and key integration options. 

The quick donning Avocet is designed for ambulance staff, police, security and well as drug raid personnel. This 30 x launderable one-piece garment provides light weight, full body coverage against contaminated liquids, aerosol particulates, blood and blood borne pathogens and viruses such as COVID-19. Pair the Avocet with the Osprey undergarment, for added CBRN protection. 

The two-piece Kite GA is a Level C CBRN protection garment that provides 24-hour protection from aerosol threats while maintaining air permeability for user comfort. It is an ideal garment for multiple threat environments and features a unique roll down hood for rapid response and respirator integration. With the addition of water/oil repellence and flame-retardant properties, it offers precision protection for police, fire fighters, and security staff. 

The Osprey is a high CBRN protective base-layer, designed for daily, covert wear under standard clothing. With a close fit and good air permeability, the Osprey allows for long periods of comfortable wear and is ideal for close personal protection units, fire fighters, and tactical response teams. 

With a global manufacturing capability including the UK, EU and Asia, and with expertise in supplying large volumes as well as smaller minimum order quantities, the team at OPEC CBRNe are market ready and welcome all enquiries.  

OPEC CBRNe will be located at Stand B96 within Hall 5 of the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), North Ave, Marston Green, Birmingham.
