Thermal barriers

Innovation close to your skin

Innovation close to your skin

The thermal barrier is the only fabric layer to come in direct contact with the firefighter’s body. This gives the thermal barrier a very unique function, with unique requirements.

The fabric is typically a blend of para and/or meta-aramid fibres with flame resistant viscose to provide extra moisture management.

 

It’s essential for the liner to have excellent wicking properties, so that sweat can disperse and dry more quickly. If the condensed sweat were to get trapped on the body instead, it could cause steam burns when a firefighter comes into contact with heat.
