One of our latest innovations is the Nomex® Nano Flex-Material von DuPontTM. Not only is this flame-resistant material extremely lightweight and breathable, it also keeps harmful soot particles away from your skin (see catalog download, page 36 ff.). This is why we are already incorporating this particle barrier in products such as the NANO FLAME PROTECTION HOOD (p. 58 ff).
The hood is just one of the new highlights. Also new in the catalog are the ENDURANCE collection, which for the first time combines a high level of flame protection with comfortable stretch material (p. 48), and the multi-functional weather protection fleece jacket STORMGARD (p. 65).
You will also find fascinating background stories on these products. You’ll learn how the S-GARD brand came into being, for instance, and how a horse-drawn cart played a role in this (p. 14 ff). In addition, we can at last tell you more about our ‘EFAS’ rescue system (p. 20 ff.) –developed to enhance the safety of operations on board sea-going vessels. We hope you enjoy the read.
