This material offers the highest thermal protection available and is a quality textile that looks good, feels good and has the durability and abrasion resistance necessary to last.

 

NOMEX Titan® was developed through a partnership between Dupont and Hainsworth Protective Fabrics in England.

 

This outer shell material carries the unique property of "active air entrapment". It consists of NOMEX® on top and a Kevlar® grid underneath. When the fabric is exposed to extreme heat such as a flash fire situation, the two fibers react differently causing the Kevlar® layer to consolidate and ripple while the Nomex ® grid remains undamaged.

 

The rippled Kevlar® layer creates pockets of air known as "active air entrapment" between the outer layer and the Kevlar® grid and the moisture barrier. Air is one of the world's lightest and most effective heat insulators and this unique outer shell fabric harnesses this natural thermal barrier.

TITAN is a patented Dual layer, Advanced Woven Fabric System

 

The two layers are woven together using a special weave pattern, which allows the innovative fabric system to work effectively 

The fabric system reacts to extreme heat as experienced in flash fire conditions. The Hainsworth TITAN consolidates causing the layer to ripple and remain undamaged. 

The rippled layer of Dupont Kevlar creates air pockets, which offers the garment wearer a greater heat insulation when it is most needed

VIKING MACS also allows you to personalize and optimize your suit more than ever before!

 

Empowered by a military-inspired system of webbed loops, the firefighter is enabled to attach performance enhancing features and accessories right where he wants them – where they are easily accessible and do not interfere with other equipment.

 

The VIKING MACS system is similar to the modular, adjustable system often incorporated into combat gear and backpacks. The system allows the firefighter to quickly and flexibly attach and reposition pouches, pockets or other accessories to match individual preferences, tactical requirements and the equipment carried.  

 

Simply pull the straps through the loops and attach them with a snap. Choose from a wide variety of modular accessories to get a suits that fits your exact needs.

How it works


The outer shell in the jacket and trousers are attached to the liner with a zipper system. Before you get back into the fire truck, simply unzip the outer shell from the liners and place it in the dissolvable washing bag.

 

When you get back to the station, throw the bag in the washing machine. This reduces your exposure to dangerous chemicals and prevents them from contaminating the truck, the station and the people handling the suits for washing.

Cancer risk among firefighters is a major concern all over the world. Together with firefighters in the field, VIKING has developed and tested a tactical solution for the next generation of protection. When you are out on a call, your outer shell is often exposed to dangerous particles. With VIKING’s new Guardian suit, you just remove the outer shell and you have a wearable suit for the road home, limiting the contamination of the vehicle and your body.

Slick, lower friction properties of a Glide Thermal Liner add enhanced freedom of movement and more comfort to your turnout gear. This amazing low friction capability is a result of our patented weave—the only face cloth with 60% DuPont™ Kevlar® Filament Technology. In addition to low friction, Glide provides the ultimate in moisture management as it wicks perspiration from the body and dries quickly - keeping you cooler, drier and more comfortable

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Iso’Air®: heat protection, high breathability.

Iso’Air® acts as an incompressible spacer between the lining and the outer fabric to protect the firefighter from both fire and heat. It is superior to other systems due to the pockets of trapped air held in the non-woven

 

 

 

 

 

TenCate Defender™ M strikes an optimum balance between protection, garment life, comfort and cost. Since its introduction in 2007 the material has saved a great many lives. TenCate Defender™ M is regarded as the new standard for the heat and flame-retardant uniforms.
