Engineered to be lighter, stronger and more flexible with enhanced protection, PBI Max outer shell fabrics, exclusively from Safety Components, lead the way. Innovative PBI Max offers firefighters the world’s best-in-class combination of heat, strength, flame and break open protection. The strongest outer shell fabric in the world, PBI Max is also the most flexible, most comfortable and most durable outer shell firefighters have ever experienced.
Safety Components is the originator and only manufacturer of PBI Max. After years in development, PBI Max rocked the fire service with its introduction in 2012 at the FDIC show in the USA. Since its introduction seven years ago, the patented PBI Max design has exceeded expectations for over 250,000 firefighters around the globe.
The technical foundation of PBI Max is in Safety Components’ Filament Twill Technology™. This patented combination of high strength DuPont™ Kevlar® filament yarns and re-engineered PBI dominant spun yarns create a fabric unparalleled in strength, rip-resistance and garment durability. Lighter, stronger, more flexible fabrics using Filament Twill Technology™, coupled with ergonomic garment designs, have revolutionized the way firefighters perform while wearing turnout gear.
Professional and civilian firefighters have attested that PBI Max is the most flexible and most comfortable outer shell they’ve ever experienced. The unmatched comfort and flexibility found in PBI Max leads to improved firefighter mobility. And, improved mobility can make all the difference in life-threatening situations. Firefighters looking for enhanced performance do not have to sacrifice mobility…with PBI Max, heightened mobility, durability and protection are possible.
Some would argue tear resistance is the ultimate test of predicting garment durability, others would declare Martindale abrasion as the most reliable indicator of garment durability. Regardless, PBI Max has the best performance in both categories of all PBI outer shell fabrics. However, the real barometer of durability is performance on the fire ground. With over seven years of service in major cities and over 250,000 suits sold, only PBI Max can make the claim as the most demanded PBI fabric. Fire departments and brigades shouldn’t risk wearing look-a-like or knockoff solutions. There’s only one PBI Max, exclusively from Safety Components — the proven assurance of a wise PPE investment.
