Sultanate of Oman

Assembly: 529 - Microrip

The Omani firefighters of the Public Authority for Civil Defence and Ambulance (PACDA) face incredibly high summer temperatures. They require a fire suit that can protect them from heat stress while ensuring their freedom of movement. To achieve this balance between heat resistance and breathability, we advised our PU membrane. It is entirely developed and manufactured in Europe by Sioen. This membrane is close to the skin, allowing a greater evacuation of perspiration, and thus a higher breathability. In addition, its mechanical resistance is unmatched, with its 200% elasticity, allowing the Omani firemen the comfort they need during their heroic interventions.

Material assembly 529 - Microrip

Our 529 Microrip assembly is waterproof, breathable, light and very resistant. It perfectly combines a good mechanical resistance with an excellent light-weight protection.
