Luxembourg

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg had a clear mission for us: develop a suit with an excellent protection that maintains the existing look so that the brigades would be able to combine new and older suits. 

The Nomex® Microrip fabric offers a breaking and tensile strength that exceeds by far the requirements of the EN 469 standard. This fabric figures on top of the quality classification of DuPont®. The additional Sioguard finishing improves the water repellence considerably.  

The combination of our new PTFE membrane on the basis of PTFE SIO-A.I.R. and our thermal lining (two layers of Nomex® felt matelassé) guarantees an excellent protection in all circumstances. 

What's more, the suit didn't only obtain level 2 of the EN 469 standard but also the high visibility standard EN 471 class 1. 

The suit has been certified after 25 washes at 60°C.

Several suits have already been burnt on the Thermo-Man® to simulate a flashover. This suit has obtained the best possible result: 0% burns. Contact us for more information about this excellent suit that will protect you in all circumstances. 


Hivis stripings

Perforated fluorescent striping - yellow glass beads

This striping, with a minimum width of 5 cm, only complies for the fluorescent part with the requirements of the EN 471/EN ISO 20471.
Its retroreflective qualities may not be taken into account for the obtention of the EN 471/EN ISO 20471 norm.

To improve the breathability of the clothing the striping is perforated. The aim is to prevent excessive warmth from accumalating underneath the striping. This warmth is the cause of burns. Thanks to the perforations it can escape much easier.

Perforated retrotreflective striping - silver glass beads (50 mm)

This striping with a minimum width of 50 mm takes advantage of glass beads to reflect the light to make the wearer of the suit visible in dangerous circumstances. In accordance with the requirements of the EN 471/EN ISO 20471.

To improve the breathability of the clothing the striping is perforated. The aim is to prevent excessive warmth from accumalating underneath the striping. This warmth is the cause of burns. Thanks to the perforations it can escape much easier.
