As the industry continues to learn about evolving fireground hazards, the gear you wear and how you wear it is becoming more and more critical. GORE® Protective Fabrics deliver head-to-protection, while managing heat stress better in all kinds of conditions — even after exposure to extreme heat.
GORE® Protective Barriers — Engineered with Protection and Comfort to Meet Your Evolving Needs
In addition to protection that exceeds the latest edition of the NFPA standards, GORE® Protective Barriers deliver the highest breathability, so you can wear it longer at the fire scene.
- Certified to the particulate-blocking option of the NFPA 1971 Standard, 2018 Edition, the GORE® Particulate Hood is your best choice for protection and comfort. This durable hood barrier maintains its 99.9% particulate-blocking performance even after 100 wash cycles.
- Third-party testing has confirmed that the GORE® PARALLON™ liner system in your gear delivers the highest breathability, followed closely by the GORE® CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier. Both of these products performed significantly better than the competition in helping to reduce heat exhaustion.
- Gloves with GORE® CROSSTECH® glove inserts maintain a durable barrier that ensures reliable, long-lasting protection while providing the dexterity you need to complete your job successfully.
- Leather boots with GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric have been proven to reduce the risk of slips and falls. This fabric leads the industry in providing durable, breathable protection in firefighter footwear.
