Personal protection is important because water jetting wounds are both particularly dangerous and entirely preventable, thanks to the availability of training materials and safety equipment like TurtleSkin WaterArmor.
We recommend wearing a rubber water jetting slicker suit with WaterArmor, as well as protective eyewear, ear protection and a helmet with a face shield. TurtleSkin WaterArmor gives you the protection of 100% Kevlar™ fiber from DuPont with a 100% polypropylene cover fabric designed to resist punctures, cuts and abrasions.
This innovative suit offers superior protection and comfort with a patented chap-and-vest system composed of twelve light weight flexible panels with Velcro™ fittings at the thighs that allow one to lengthen or shorten for perfect fit. The TurtleSkin gaiters provide excellent shin and foot protection through a flexible lightweight multi-panel system. Gaiters attach easily to any boot, and are complimentary to steel-toed rubber work boots. The TurtleSkin WaterArmor system is extensively tested and rated for length of exposure at different pressure ratings (see brochure). WaterArmor panels may be and purchased separately and replaced as needed.
