MEDINA, Ohio — PPE manufacturer Fire-Dex has announced that it is starting production of AAMI Level 3-compliant reusable isolation gowns and coveralls in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“The current pandemic has created a shortfall in the supply of many disposable types of PPE and we have urgently been looking for solutions,” said Todd Herring, director of marketing and product development at Fire-Dex, said in a statement. “We can now offer isolation gowns and coveralls that exceed CDC guidance for COVID-19 related responses. Our first round of production will start shipping in the next few weeks and we plan to produce 100,000 garments in the next 90 days.”

The garments have been tested with 100 wash, dry, and sanitization cycles and have been shown to exceed the AAMI Level 3 requirements, the company said. 

“The per use cost makes it as affordable as its Level 1 disposable counterparts and the reusability helps reduce the potential of running out of PPE,” said Herring.

The standard gown is designed as a universal fit with elastic wrists and an adjustable tie back, while the coveralls are alpha-sized with elastic wrists, ankles and a hood with an elastic facial opening. 

Fire-Dex has also compiled resources and guidance for first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic.
