3 groundbreaking emergency response fabrics launched from TenCate Protective Fabrics


TenCate Protective Fabrics has developed three groundbreaking emergency response fabrics: PBI Peak 5 is an all-new, highly innovative outer shell fabric designed to be a lightweight solution for firefighter turnout gear; Titanium is engineered face cloth that uses thermal linear technology to deliver sustained performance and lubricity through repeated launderings and normal use; and Agility Tactical is a lightweight, outer layer fabric that delivers adaptive protection for the modern first responder.

UNION CITY, Ga. — TenCate Protective Fabrics has developed an all-new, highly innovative outer shell fabric – PBI Peak 5. Designed to be a lightweight solution for firefighter turnout gear, PBI Peak 5 is ground-breaking new phase in the evolution of outer shell fabrics. Weighing in at 5.6 ounces per square yard (190 gsm), PBI Peak 5 delivers the highest percentage of PBI fiber currently available in the outer shell market. By combining the unmatched thermal protection of PBI with the time-tested strength of Kevlar it’s an outer shell that delivers a one-two punch of maximum performance.

Engineered with patent-pending ENFORCE Technology, PBI Peak 5 offers firefighters a balanced fabric that is strong throughout the gear, yet lighter in weight to provide better range-of-motion.

The next level in thermal liner technology, Titanium is a specially engineered face cloth that delivers sustained performance and lubricity through repeated launderings and normal use. The face cloth not only looks and feels great, it stays slick longer and slides on and off easily for faster response times.

Titanium features COOLDERM Technology which delivers unmatched moisture management to help keep firefighters cooler on the job. When it comes to fighting fires in harsh environments, staying cool and dry can make all the difference.

Tri-certified for EMS, USAR, and Wildlands, Agility Tactical outer layer delivers adaptive protection for the modern first responder. This lightweight fabric for technical rescue outer layers is designed to maximize protection and comfort while increasing mobility — making it ideal for tight spaces and difficult extrications.
