Firefighting
 
The outer layer of operational clothing for firefighters consists of DuPontTM Nomex® III Antistatic, Nomex® Comfort or Nomex® Outershell Tough and provides protection against the effects of heat and flames. The fabrics are available in different weight categories and versions, e.g. ripstop, twill or special weaves. The finishes range from Easy Repel, a high-quality oil and water repellent finish combined with chemical protection, to Premium Repel, which promises highly effective oil and water repellence combined with chemical protection without subsequent impregnation. HuPF, EN 469 or EN 15614 certification has been obtained for the products.

The selection of lining and insulation materials ranges from quilted woven and knitted fabrics to nonwovens made from Nomex® and liner materials made from Nomex® Comfort, Nomex® III and Nomex®/Lenzing FR®.

We supply abrasion-resistant woven fabrics (DPF protectorTM) or elastic knitted fabrics with, for example, polyurethane, silicone or ceramic coatings for areas of the uniform that need to be particularly hard-wearing, e.g. knees, elbows or shoulders. Chemical-resistant moisture barriers stop the uniform from soaking up water or hazardous liquids. Fabrics for standard uniforms made from comfortable Nomex® or Nomex®/Lenzing FR® blends round off our product range.
