The engineers at Newtex designed the X30 Attack Proximity Fire Fighting Suit from the ground up to meet the EN 1486 standard for close proximity fire fighting gear. The Z-Flex® aluminized outer shell reflects 95% of radiant heat and withstands radiant temperatures up to 3000°F (1650°C).
In addition to providing outstanding protection, Z-Flex is also the most durable aluminized material available and will not de-laminate under even the most demanding conditions. The Stedair® moisture barrier and Tencate Aralite® NP thermal barrier protect the wearer from conductive and convective heat and steam.
This suit can be used in a range of industries and applications including aircraft rescue fire fighting (ARFF), first response to oil and gas fires, and other proximity fire fighting scenarios.
