It’s a bold claim to suggest that what you are doing is revolutionary. Are you zigging when others are zagging? Are you challenging the status quo and doing it differently? FlamePro had long been convinced that there was a better way to design, manufacture and supply firefighter protective garments and so set about changing the game with garments proven to aid performance and reduce fatigue.
When you and your team are putting your lives at risk to protect the property and lives of others, it’s reassuring to know that you have the best equipment.
With FlamePro the facts are clear. They produce garments that provide a greater level of protection and are proven to aid performance and reduce fatigue.
In a recent scientific trial (conducted by the University of Leeds, School of Textiles) FlamePro suits improved the physical performance of firefighters by 25% and reduced their heart rate by 10%.
How is that achieved? Through creating innovative garments made with innovative fabrics.
Changing the game might suggest that they are looking at unproven technologies. Not so. FlamePro have taken a step back and explored alternative fabrics, membranes, components and designs to create a structural firefighter suit that is as much as 25% lighter. Their 900 jacket and 905 salopettes weight just 2.78kg in total because of their innovative PBO fabrics.
Uncompromising garment performance
But surely there must be some kind of compromise to achieve this? The science suggests not.
- Their innovative PBO outer shell performs significantly better in Limited Oxygen Index (LOI) tests than equivalent PBI fabrics, scoring 68 vs 41
- FlamePro’s 180gsm PBO fabric is also tough enough to withstand the rough treatment that the job entails – the tensile and tear strength is nearly double that of PBI-based fabrics
- Their new membrane layer has all the barrier qualities you would expect – it even has more than some well-known brand-name alternatives
- All their components are fire resistant with innovative zippers that allow for the rapid opening of a garment should circumstances dictate.
Procurement and your accountant’s first choice too
We all know that it’s an unfortunate fact of life that even those that put their lives on the line for others can’t escape the beady eye of the accountant. We all wish that cost wasn’t a factor … but it is.
The great news is that we think the sums add up. No compromise on safety plus a garment that delivers measurably better performance, is quality assured (ISO 9001:2008) and has proven durability in the field. That equals great value for money in our book. And if you need something different, FlamePro can design and manufacture to market-leading timescales too.
Revolutionary customer service
FlamePro know that every day you and your team aren’t wearing their garments you are losing out on the benefits. That’s why they felt they had to tear up the rule book once and for all.
With market-leading delivery times of only six to eight weeks for large and even bespoke orders, they can also provide next-day delivery for small volumes of garments which are held in stock – two great examples of how FlamePro is leading the line once again.
Make the smart choice
We all trust brands that we know. Occasionally though, it’s right to look beyond those well-known names and take a look at what might be a better solution. FlamePro is a business forging a new path, upsetting the status quo to bring you some of the most innovative firefighting garments
