Continued cool protection
We know that in addition to looking ‘cool’, our firefighting fabric must naturally offer all-round protection from chemicals.
In particular, particle contamination and exposure to toxic residues by repeated fire interventions are known problems in our field. And as a protective fabric company, we want to minimise exposure to such risks as far as we can – and now even more so with our new clothing range. So to do this, we’ve been thoroughly doing our research to ensure constant fabric innovation.
Ensuring constant vibrancy, coolness and protection means we need to be on top of our game and regularly on the lookout to improve your firefighting suits on a range of fronts. In fact, we’re frequently researching trends in the industry to do so and have even written about the 6 Trends in Firefighting Suits which demonstrates the latest observations in the industry and we’re taking this into account with our new product lines.
How ‘cool’ is our new range?
In addition to the fact that our new range is colourfast, the fabric is also more breathable and cooler than previous designs. And it enables the wearer to move even more freely because of its lightness and cool quality.
Moreover, our soon-to-be-launched fabrics are already proven to be cool with firefighters. That’s because we’ve recently done a trial run with a brigade in the Dutch ‘Veiligheidsregio’ (safety region) of IJsselland. Durable firefighting suits made from our fabric have been well-received and one of the firefighters wearing our new fabric had this to say about it:
“The suit feels comfortable, light, insulates well - both in the cold and in the heat […] I am very positive about this suit”
And here comes our brand new ‘cool’
So imagine equally wearing a cool, lightweight firefighting suit that doesn’t fade in the wash and that’s still protective? It is for these reasons we’ve been hard at work creating a brand-new fabric line that combines our years of expertise in protective fabrics with our concerns for health, safety, cleanliness – and aesthetics.
We believe in creating protective fabrics that adhere to these concerns and that are made for life – it’s our company mission after all. Garments made from our fabrics should not only be protective but also remain in a constantly fresh and vibrant condition.
