15 Aug Outstanding protection for firefighters
To accommodate the changing role of the firefighter, brand new Xenon range; a complete collection of multi-layered, interactive and multifunctional fire garments covering structural, rescue and USAR has been launched by Ballyclare.
The range has been extended to include an advanced new layered system. This includes multifunction rescue jackets that meet the highest levels of high visibility, waterproofness and breathability that can be worn for the majority of firefigher’s duties such as RTCs or wildland firefighting. There is the option to wear a light weight tunic over the top that will enable the firefighter to safely attend a structural fire. To complete the range Ballyclare has developed a two-piece urban search and rescue suit that can be zipped together for optimum comfort and protection. This too meets the highest level of high visibility, and is inherently flame retardant. A durable GORE-TEX® jacket and over trouser are available to wear over the top for wet weather protection.
The more traditional structural fire kit has been designed using brand new technologies in fabrics. This includes outershell fabrics, linings and the new Parallon liner system from Ballyclare’s partner W. L. Gore & Associates.
