Hair Caps & Hair Nets

Hair Caps and Hair Nets are an item that generally covers the wearers head to keep the hair inside the cap or net. They are classed as a piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) within environments that have strict rules regarding cross-contamination, like food manufacturing or production.

Why are they so important?

By sitting on top of the wearers head, they prevent any unwanted hair or skin from leaving the covered area, or the wearer touching their hair and contaminating their hands. Using a hair cap or hair net, it helps prevent cross-contamination or even infection, ensuring the environment they are worn in is hygienic, which can be critical to the operation of the business and work environment. Disposable hair caps or nets are often used in:

  • Food preparation or manufacture
  • Distribution warehouses that handle food or sensitive equipment like electronics
  • Medical or laboratory environments
  • Electronics manufacture
  • Pharmaceuticals and research
  • What features do they have?

    Dependant on the application they are used for, hair nets and hair caps can have different beneficial features that aid their function within the working environment like:

  • Breathable for optimum wearer comfort
  • Liquid or water repellent
  • Anti-static
  • Metal detectable
  • They can also be made from different materials and some of the most commonly used materials are:

  • Microporous fabric – This liquid repellent, tear-resistant and puncture-resistant material is ideal when working in hot or humid environments as the microporous construction makes the hair cap more breathable. This fabric is comfortable and allows the cap to be worn for extended periods of time, without compromising on comfort and can be used in applications with moderate to heavy fluid or liquid contact or light chemical exposure.
  • Polyethylene material – This material provides a non-linting and waterproof hair cap solution, which makes these caps ideal to wear in food processing or manufacture, painting, pharmaceuticals or electronics manufacturing and assembly.
  • Polypropylene – The most economical and basic type of hair cap you can buy. It is most commonly used in medical, dental, food manufacturing and service, pharmaceutical or research applications. It provides basic protection that is lightweight and breathable for the user.
