Assembly: 538 - Microrip

The Monaco Fire Brigade does interventions in good weather conditions, hot temperatures and in an urban area where there are a lot of tunnels. The intervention suit is now red to improve the visibility of the firemen in tunnels. For this firefighter suit, the 538 Microrip complex is used, an assembly without a membrane to increase the comfort and reduce the risk heat stress. It is lighter and more breathable. You might see this suit during the Monaco F1 Grand Prix.

Material assembly 538 - Microrip

We are aware of the problems that might occur before, during and after fire interventions. You might be too hot before the intervention to begin with and it could be harder to evacuate perspiration efficiently. To solve those problems, we have created a light, resistant and very breathable assembly. It has a level two thermal protection.

Our solution with a RET < 9 m².Pa/w is rare in the market. After all, the lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.
