When ILC Dover initiated our R&D on the first spacesuit concepts in the 1950s, we already had considerable experience working with advanced flexible materials and joining techniques to create high altitude pressure suits. Unlike these suits, our objective for the first true spacesuit went well beyond survival protection. We wanted to create a product that protected astronauts while they walked — and worked — on the moon. Our solution, the A7-L pressure suit, not only provided a life-sustaining environment for astronauts — it permitted maximum mobility and could be worn with relative comfort for up to 115 hours. Today, the spacesuit has become synonymous with personal protection — and symbolic of a passion that ILC Dover has pursued for decades. This legacy is fully represented in our family of personal protection products: powered air purifying respirators (PAPRs), escape respirators and full-body suits for BSL-4 environments. All of these solutions incorporate leading-edge flexible materials and advanced film technologies, and they embody the core principles that made the original spacesuits so successful — namely, they offer mission-critical protection while providing the highest levels of comfort and mobility to keep workers productive. All of our respirators are NIOSH-approved and are used by leading companies all over the world. Click below to explore our family of personal protection products.
