Outer fabric Square

The innovation of the Square fabric lies in its construction and in the choice of raw materials.

Its original dual structure combines the advantages of a Meta Aramid front side and a Para Aramid back side, creating a surface capable of reacting to heat flows.

Indeed, in the event of a flashover, the fabric will thicken instantly, creating additional air space and thus improving the protection of the firefighter.

Para aramid provides a very high mechanical resistance (tensile and tear strength); placed on the inside, it is protected from UV rays, which allows the fabric to retain its properties over time.

The Square also has a very high air permeability, which allows for a better ventilation and it helps to reduce the firefighters' heat stress.

Moisture barrier SIO-A.I.R. PTFE

100% aramid

Following their risk assessment, firemen sometimes demand that the membrane is not only breathable, but also very heat resistant. That is why we developed our own solution: the SIO-A.I.R barrier PTFE. We have laminated a base layer of PTFE on a 3D felt of 100% aramid.

The SIO-A.I.R barrier PTFE is tested in accordance with the ISO 6530 standard (Protection against liquid chemicals - Test method for resistance of materials to penetration by liquids). It is waterproof, with a water column of more than 10 meters, even after it has been exposed to a temperature of 220°C for 7 seconds. It also passes the kerosene test.

Finally, the membrane also passes the ASTM F1671 test after 25 washes at 60°C, which ensures that a selection of viruses cannot penetrate the SIO-A.I.R barrier PTFE membrane.

Thermal barrier Techweave

This 3D weave produces a fabric with excellent insulating properties.

The air channel system thus created makes it possible to achieve a level of thermal insulation never before achieved while improving the regulation of heat and sweat that firefighters generate while in interventions. Thanks to its aramid composition, this lining has a very good mechanical resistance.

This fabric improves the comfort of the firefighter thanks to its flexibility and lightness.

50% of Techweave is in direct contact with the skin, which makes Techweave very comfortable.
