Making a difference on the front lines

Military & Police fabrics

For more than a decade, military forces from every branch have been using our fabrics in the field. From the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, right up until today, TenCate Protective Fabrics continues to provide complete FR solutions to the men and women who need them most.

The fabric technologies engineered at TenCate Protective Fabrics have served to keep troops safer, warmer and more comfortable while deployed or serving outside the wire. We changed the landscape of military FR protection with the introduction of Defender®M and the family of fabrics continues to grow.

New fabrics have been developed for use in defense, tactical, national law enforcement and other organizations that need military-grade solutions all over the world. Our engineers continue to design new, innovative technical textiles that provide maximum FR protection, comfort and ease of wear. By developing a family of fabrics that offers flexible solutions, we hope to ensure that soldiers, officers and other professionals around the world can find an FR solution that suits their specialized needs.
