With a growing focus on firefighter health – Pac Fire Australia is pleased to announce the arrival of the Bristol Particulate Blocking Flash Hoods in Nomex® and PBI®.
Recent studies into firefighter health and well-being suggest that the flash hood is the most penetrable piece of protective clothing worn by the firefighter, a particularly troubling finding considering the face and neck have been identified as areas of significant dermal exposure to potential carcinogens.
NanoFlex Flash Hoods are the smartest fire hoods on the market. They provide optimum comfort and protection while mitigating heat stress and filtering harmful particulates found on the fire ground.
Bristol Uniforms revolutionary Nano Flex flash hood has been proven to be 99.8% successful at filtering harmful particulates while remaining lightweight, soft and breathable, while minimal sound is produced through head movement resulting in greater situational awareness for the firefighter.
NanoFlex hoods are available from Pac Fire now in both Nomex® and with additional flashover protection in PBI®.
