We announced at the end of 2019 in this article: the Polyagri® is in the final of the EPIDOM challenge!
After 2 years of work with QUALITROPIC and the farmers of the French overseas departments, the Polyagri® has been redesigned and now includes the expectations in terms of comfort and practicality facing the tropical climatic conditions (significant heat and high humidity level):
Optimal comfort and simultaneous protection:
- Filtration and air exchange: the fabric technology of the suit promotes air exchange between the outside and the inside of the suit. This lets to limit sweating, temperature rise and heatstroke by the evacuation of body heat through the fabric. The design of the Polyagri® has been rethought to increase its ergonomics, adapt to operational constraints and this increase user comfort.
- Optimal and universal protection: The Polyagri® filtering technology integrates activated carbon microbeads capable to filter harmful vapors, and a tear-resistant and water-repellent external fabric protecting the user from possible liquid projections and phytopharmaceutical aerosols. Thus, the air entering the suit is free of any chemical molecule in vapor form and this chronic risk is controlled.
Durability: With its 90 maintenance cycles and knee-butt-elbow reinforcements, Polyagri® guarantees a long-lasting level of protection. This garment can be reused more than 90 times and avoids the proliferation of plastic waste, unlike other “disposable” garments.

On the strength of these innovations, OUVRY has allied with PB Sécurama, a specialist in professional agricultural equipment, to distribute the POLYAGRI® suit:
OUVRY and PB Sécurama announce their agreement for the marketing and after-sales service of POLYAGRI® suits with complementary protective equipment for farmers, such as glasses, boots, masks and gloves. This agreement ensures PB Sécurama the distribution of OUVRY equipment to farmers throughout France and French overseas departments and territories.
