The U.S. Department of Defense is enhancing its anti-terrorism capabilities with the purchase of 350 ONESuit® protective hazmat suits for use at key military sites as part of its Installation Protection Program. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics manufactures the ONESuit product line.

Strategic Response Initiatives, a leading anti-terrorism and criminal justice consultancy with expertise in managing chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive incidents, included ONESuit in a diverse portfolio of anti-terrorism materials it provided for the program. The company offers assistance to governments and corporations in planning for scenarios involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

"It's an honor to work with Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, safeguarding the men and women who put their lives at risk responding to dangerous threats in hazardous conditions," said Robert Domenici, CEO/President, Strategic Response Initiatives. "To put it simply, the ONESuit ensembles offer superior protection."

The mission of the Installation Protection Program (IPP) is to provide an integrated family of systems at selected Department of Defense installations to create a foundation for anti-terrorism capabilities against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threats.

ONESuit product offerings meet rigorous National Fire Protective Association (NFPA) requirements with a lightweight, single-skin design, allowing for maneuverability and maximum user comfort in order to complete the mission. ONESuit protective gear also offers flame-resistance and extended shelf life, and is compactable for convenient, space-saving storage.

Saint-Gobain's flame-resistant, chemical and biological protective offerings include ONESuit® Pro, ONESuit® Flash, ONESuit® Gard, and ONEGlove® Hazmat.
