The best in technical rescue protection

The best in technical rescue protection

Technical rescue operations usually take place once the immediate danger of flame is removed, with firefighters often entering enclosed and confined spaces that are very hot and full of toxic smoke.  Bristol’s RescueFlex range has been developed specifically for these types of emergencies and provides a high level of flexibility to aid manoeuvrability in confined spaces, and is lightweight to minimize heat stress.

Brand new to the RescueFlex range, is Bristol’s ergonomic Gore® Varde jacket and trouser combination, which uses the very latest in fabric technology.

It is at once:

  • Lightweight
  • Breathable
  • Waterproof
  • Windproof
  • Tear and puncture resistant
  • Quick drying
  • Self-extinguishing
  • Flame retardant

These protective properties are inherent in just one layer, with a soft Aramid viscus inner-layer added for extra comfort.  Available in high-vis yellow or orange, the Gore® Varde garments also enable firefighters to work in hazardous environments without the need for any additional high-vis vests.
