Kappler hazmat protective clothing includes hazmat gowns, hazmat aprons, hazmat coveralls, and hazmat encapsulating suits. It takes a great deal of confidence for a company to put its brand on a Hazmat Level A Suit. It is a promise of protection that Kappler does not take lightly. But from gas-tight garments to basic coveralls, Kappler is the first to tell you: It’s not just the hazardous materials suit.

It’s knowing it’s the right suit, made from the right fabric, with the right seam. And the right test data that confirms all of the above. And it’s knowing something about the people behind the technology that makes the protection possible in the first place.

The Sign Says Danger. The Suit Says Kappler.


In 1976, people knew very little about chemical protective clothing. And a little-known company called Kappler was just getting started on its mission to “keep bad stuff off people”. The years since have seen Kappler define an entire industry with patented fabrics, innovative seaming technology and unique garment designs. For more than forty years, Kappler has built a reputation for quality, innovation and straightforward advice on what protective clothing to wear.

Today more than ever, the Kappler brand on your garment means you always know what you’re getting into.

The Wolf Is Always At The Door.

During a challenging period in the early days, George Kappler wanted employees to guard against complacency. As a reminder to stay focused, he posted a sign that said “The Wolf Is Always At The Door.” Over the years the wolf became an unofficial mascot for the company, appearing on Christmas cards and other items. Much like the wolf itself, Kappler has overcome various threats to not only survive, but thrive. Known for its intelligence and survival instinct, the wolf also exhibits a nurturing side in taking care of the pack. For Kappler, the pack is more than employees. It is also the company’s customers, vendors, technical partners and many other friends. Kappler looks forward to many more years of working together to “keep bad stuff off people.”
