Bristol Uniforms is a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of firefighter PPE. Always at the forefront of design, Bristol works closely with international fibre and fabric manufacturers to develop innovative garments that offer maximum safety, flexibility and comfort. Based in the UK, the company has enjoyed a strong presence in the Gulf region for more than 40 years, supplying PPE through a well-established network of distributors located in UAE, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain.
Bristol Uniforms offers a broad range of PPE solutions. Its ergonomic XFlex structural firefighting garments and Ergotech Action structural fire coats and trousers are particularly popular in the Middle East, as they provide maximum protection suitable for both municipal and industrial firefighting. These designs come in a variety of colours and fabrics with either PBI or DuPont Nomex fibres, and a choice of moisture barrier such as Gore’s Crosstech Airlock, Crosstech Fireblocker and Parallon. Both styles adhere to standards set by the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) and have also recently achieved accreditation for the newly revised National Fire Protection Association standard NFPA1971:2018, ensuring protection from thermal, physical, environmental, and blood-borne hazards encountered during firefighting operations.
Over and above structural firefighting PPE, Bristol Uniforms supplies a wide range of garments for more diverse firefighting roles, such as its lightweight RescueFlex range for USAR operations. It also provides specialist, compatible helmets, hoods, boots and gloves to ensure top-to-toe protection, such as the revolutionary new Particulate Protection Hood, which prevents exposure to harmful smoke particles.
