Due to ongoing availability issues from the supplier, Pacific Helmets is changing the type of Nomex® used to make the neck protectors in select builds of structural firefighting helmet.
What does this mean for Pac Fire & our customers?
Previously Nomex® Neck Protectors were made from 260gsm plain weave fabric, effective immediately they will now be manufactured from a 200gsm Ripstop weave fabric.
The new 200gsm 100% Nomex® fabric has been tested by a third-party independent laboratory and has been found to have the excellent flame retardancy properties expected from Nomex® fabric. The Ripstop weave gives a grid pattern and enhanced tensile strength performance to the material not seen in the previous fabric.
What products are affected?
Select models of Pacific Helmets F10 MkV, F11 & F15 structural firefighting helmets.
