Thermal Barriers

TenCate transformed the development of thermal barriers by engineering lightweight, quilted fabrics. This vital part of a firefighter's turnout gear ensemble insulates against the intense conducted, convected and radiant heat of structural fires and reduces the heat stress experienced by firefighters. Through our efforts, we've reduced the bulk of thermal liners and improved their wickability, without sacrificing thermal protection. Designed to work in conjunction with our outer shell fabrics and a moisture barrier, TenCate thermal barriers offer today's firefighters complete turnout systems of extraordinary thermal protection, performance, comfort and durability.
