Bouches-du-Rhône Structural Fire

Assembly: 538 - Microrip

This firefighter suit is an answer to the risk analysis and medical study we received from the Bouches du Rhône SDIS. It was our first garment that combines high visibility, that complies with the EN 469 standard (protective firefighter clothing) and that has no membrane. The 538 assembly is very breathable, which reduces the risk of heat stress for the firefighter and offers a high thermal protection in structural fires as well as in forest fires.

538 Microrip - Jacket SDIS 13

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.
