Fabric Information IGNIS Fabric is specifically designed for the manufacture of garments used in close proximity to high intensity fires. Extremely lightweight at 330g, and pliable, the IGNIS outer shell fabric is a metallised aluminium coatedmeta-para aramid fabric that is constructed from 95% Meta-aramid and blended with 5% Para-aramid. Providing full body coverage including the head, hands and feet, the Proximity garments provide excellent protection from radiant heat and high temperatures. Due to the high ambient temperatures that the wearer can be subjected to, it is recommended that the Ignis Proximity suits are worn with a breathing apparatus to provide breathing air at normal temperatures. The Proximity garments, certified to EN ISO 11612, are used for aircraft rescue, aircraft firefighting and proximity of high temperatures (but not entry into direct flame).

Kevlar® stitching throughout

Garment Benefits The mirror-like surface reflects radiant heat away, allowing close flame proximity while reducing the rate of heat absorption that can lead to thermal fatigue. The integration of additional inner carbon felt linings ensure superior protection and performance in the extreme work environments faced by civilians, emergency service and military personnel. These garments are worn in industries such as aircraft rescue, aircraft firefighting, bulk flammable liquids and similar situations involving high levels of radiant heat.

Structural Fire Suits

The Solar Fire Suits can endure high levels of heat for brief periods of time without themselves combusting and burning and therefore minimises body burn percentage when exposed to heat and flames. The Solar Structural Fire Suits have three components: an outer shell, a moisture barrier, and a thermal barrier, all serving a different function. The outer layer protects against flame injury and burns caused by conductive heat. The moisture barrier protects against water penetration and allows internal moisture vapour to escape. It is imperative that the layers are kept dry to avoid the transfer of heat in a convective manner from the outer layer through the layers to the skin. The inner thermal barrier and lining offers protection against heat from proximity to flame. In between each of these layers are pockets of air and together with the fabric layers, they help to further insulate the wearer from the extreme environments of fires.

Garment Benefits TenCate Millenia™ - MI 9180 is the world’s lightest and strongest outer shell in the market. It remains flexible and supple, even after thermal exposure. The thermal moisture barrier is engineered with a patented 3-D spunlace, non-woven technology. The ePTFE/PU bi-component laminate provides superior breathability, is high temperature resistant with protection against blood and blood borne pathogens. The thermal liner with the Wickwell™ plus technology moves perspiration away from body.. Fabric Information TenCate Millenia™ system with the following combined layers Outer shell: TenCate Millenia™- MI 9180 - 180g, 39% Pbo (polybenzoxazole), 59% Para-aramid and 2% Anti-static fibres. Thermal-moisture barrier: TenCate - CX140 - 140g, a meta-para aramid thermal barrier and an ePTFE/ PU moisture barrier combined. Thermal liner: TenCate - CZ703 - 130g, a GoldCheck™ patterned meta-aramid thermal liner with Wickwell™ plus technology.

Fabric Information Nomex® Tough Ripstop 195g outer shell is constructed from 75% Nomex® / 23% Kevlar® / 2% P-140 carbon fibres. The moisture barrier is constructed with ePTFE on a Basofil® non woven carrier, 90g TenCate Tecashield® - CQ8, 270g thermal liner is an FR non woven aramid viscose quilted to an FR woven 50% Meta-aramid, 50% Modacrylic woven fabric.

Fabric Information Nomex® outer shell is constructed from a 60% Nomex® and 40% Lenzing® FR Viscose 260g The breathable and waterproof moisture barrier is a 50% FR knitted polyester, 50% PU membrane, 85g. The FR thermal liner is an FR non woven aramid felt quilted to a 50% aramid, 50% viscose, 260g.

Garment Benefits The Nomex® / Lenzing® FR Viscose outer shell is an inherently flame-resistant fabric that stands up to heat, high abrasion resistance, strong colour fastness and protects the inner components. The breathable PU membrane protects against external water penetration and allows body heat to escape. The non woven thermal layer traps pockets of air to provide enhanced thermal protection and the inner woven layer protects against heat from proximity to flame.

Garment Benefits Nomex® Tough Ripstop is inherently flame- resistant, will not melt or drip, is resistant to most industrial oils, solvents, and chemicals, with high abrasion and dimensional stability properties. The ePTFE moisture barrier protects against water penetration and allows internal moisture vapour to escape. The non woven thermal layer traps pockets of air to provide enhanced thermal protection and the inner woven layer protects against heat from proximity to flame. The Wickwell™ plus technology on the lining moves perspiration away from body.
