    firefighters

    TenCate Protective Fabrics in Europe is launching new thermal barrier and liner fabrics for use in firefighting turnout gear, based on the TenCate Defender™ M flame-resistant fabrics already used for military combat uniforms. These new fabrics for firefighter turnout gear use TenCate Coolderm™ technology to provide better insulation and protection from heat while offering an evaporative cooling effect to keep the skin cooler and drier. This contributes to a reduction in the heat stress suffered by firefighters and further increases their overall safety. The introduction will be at the forthcoming Interschutz 2015 international trade fair in Hannover, Germany.
