ChemBio Stay protected and move freely while responding.

As a firefighter, you may be called to respond to emergencies that involve potential exposure to toxic industrial chemicals or chemical and biological agents. Chemical, biological, radioactive, nuclear (CBRN) ensembles made with GORE® CHEMPAK® fabrics provide you with a high level of protection against these dangerous contaminants. In addition, breathable suits made of GORE® CROSSTECH® fabrics provide certified protection against infectious diseases such as Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

NFPA standards define the type of protection needed when you respond to different types of ChemBio emergencies. NFPA defines levels of protection based on whether the contaminant concentration is above or below a level immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH). We have tailored our ChemBio fabrics to provide protection in both the hot zone (contaminant concentrations above IDLH) and the warm zone (contaminant concentrations below IDHL).

  • Select Your Suit

    NFPA standards define different classes of certification for different response teams, which translates to different levels of protection. Check out suits made with durable GORE® CHEMPAK® and GORE® CROSSTECH® fabrics, which allow you to move freely and remain well-protected and on-scene longer.

  • Why Our Fabric?

    We manufacture a range of barrier fabrics that offer enhanced functionality in chemical and biological environments.

  • Heat Stress Management

    Wearing protective garments in environments with high temperatures and humidity can increase your heat stress, resulting in shorter times on scene.

  • Standards — NFPA 1994, 1991, 1992, and 1971
