Amsterdam-Amstelland Fire Brigade enthusiastic about innovative fabrics in new fire-fighting gear
TenCate Protective Fabrics is supplying the latest inherently heat and flame retardant materials for the fire-fighting uniforms of Amsterdam-Amstelland Fire Brigade. Talking about the lightweight TenCate Millenia™ outer material, the fire fighters said the following: “The fabric is thinner, which makes it more comfortable, it feels better when we're exposed to the heat of a fire. The fire doesn't bother us as much, so there's less heat stress, as we call it.”
