Lifesaving Sioen garments at Intersec

On January 19, 20 and 21, Dubai is the place to be when it comes to safety, security and fire protection. At Intersec, one of the largest fairs dedicated to Fire Protection in the world, visited by thousands in the firefighting field, from civil defence representatives, global manufacturers, international firemen..., we will proudly present our firefighting garments and our latest PPE developments.

We are safety makers

Our firefighter intervention garments protect you from all the hazards and risks that you daily face. As a producer of professional protective garments for fire fighters since 1927, we pay a lot of attention to your wearing comfort, making our garments light and flexible and thus guaranteeing high freedom of movement. Excellent moisture-regulating properties reduce the risk of heat stress. By selecting sustainable materials, our garments offer high mechanical protection. Finally, the careful attention to detail is a guarantee to achieving a functional, comfortable and safe firefighter suit that goes beyond the requirements of the standards.

PPE is our business and your safety is our priority. You risk your lives daily for us. We are dedicated to protecting you.

For any risk

Our garments for direct fire intervention perfectly protect the wearer against any kind of threat. We’re part of a large textile group that specialises in the production of both technical textiles and professional protective garments. This 360° know-how of all risk protective garments enables us to achieve protection in any working condition.

Protection against:

  • Flames
  • Convective and radiant heat (e.g. when molten metal or hot melts fall on a garment)
  • Skin burn injury
  • Heat stress
  • Wear and tear
  • Occasional contact with chemicals and toxins
  • Water (fighting fires requires water resistance or repellence)
  • Not been seen while doing their job (e.g. traffic accidents)
  • Axes, oxyacetylene and exothermic cutting torches and power saws with metal cutting blades
  • Bullets, knifes, pins, needles, dog bites
  • Extreme cold and snow/icy environments (through dry suits)
  • Drowning (Personal floatation devices)
  • Heavy industrial cleaning and decontamination

All our fire intervention suits comply with the most stringent norms and regulations.

For everyone

So far, we’ve equipped almost half a million firefighters in their various working conditions in Dubai, Paris, Brussels, Luxemburg, Bayern and Monaco to name a few. In urban city centers, on heavy traffic roads, in airports and harbours, in hostile environments, in forest and wildland, on mountains and in tunnels, on ships and boats, whichever the challenge, we have the right garment for your protection.

Through the synergies of our different specialised brands, the Sioen group has developed the unmatched know-how necessary to offer full safety solutions.

Our expertise in chainsaw protection for example, is so advanced thanks to decades of production of chainsaw protective garments for foresters with our brand SIP Protection. The expertise of our brands Mullion and Ursuit ensure that we can offer the best protection to the firefighters while diving in rescue expeditions or in any intervention at sea.

We’ll be glad to meet you and talk about our safety needs at our stand on the French Pavillion at the Intersec fair in Dubai from 19th until 21st of January 2020 included.
