Fire Service fabrics

Outer shells

Protection and comfort

Protection and comfort

Our outer shell fabrics provide the firefighter’s very first line of defence. It may be the hardest-working layer of the fire suit, but it doesn’t need to be heavy and cumbersome.

Thanks to the latest technologies and the use of most innovative fibres, we design lightweight and durable fabrics that reduce heat stress and discomfort, while still providing excellent thermal protection.

Our innovative outer-shell fabrics provide a tough, durable and above all safe first line of defense against heat, flame and abrasion. These outer shell fabrics easily withstands repeated (industrial) laundering.
