The most important thing a firefighter looks for in turnout gear is protection. Our protective barriers are specially engineered to help manage heat stress better by offering the most breathability in broader conditions. And, they offer superior thermal stability by maintaining their barrier performance and breathability after exposure to extreme heat — all while providing liquid penetration resistance to blood, body fluids, common chemicals, and water.
Select Your Protective Barrier
With more than 30 years of research and expertise backing our protective barriers, we have several options that are tailored to fit your specific needs.
Why Our Protective Barriers?
Without one of our highly breathable protective barriers in your turnout gear, you might lose protection and durability that is only available in our products.
Heat Stress Management
You absolutely need protection against extreme heat, but the vast majority of your calls don’t involve this kind of challenge. Yet, the NFPA 1971 Standard doesn’t currently address performance in different environments – particularly the warmer and low-level radiant environments which pose significant heat stress risk.
Standards — NFPA 1971 and 1851
These standards specify the minimum requirements that relate to construction and maintenance of your gear.
