When the only thing between you and the intensity of a fire is the garment you’re wearing it needs to deliver the best possible protection available in the market.
That’s why more and more firefighters are wearing high performance protective gear designed and manufactured by TEXPORT®.
TEXPORT® is a premium manufacturer of high performance protective clothing for firefighting and will be displaying its extensive product range at Intersec this year. The company’s commitment to ensuring the highest standards of protection and comfort in its garments through ergonomics, innovative design and the use of high quality fabrics has earned the trust of firefighters around the world.
TEXPORT® garments set the standard for performance and protection and are the result of a detailed process of design and development that starts with considerable time spent with firefighters. Their garments consistently outperform the competition in ergonomic testing and wearer trials and comfortably exceed all relevant international quality and performance standards.
TEXPORT® specialists invest their time with firefighters analysing operational needs and risk profiles, as well as reviewing the nature of injuries. This knowledge is used to inform a comprehensive design and testing process that is undertaken at the company’s Salzburg HQ. All garments are manufactured in TEXPORT®’s own factories and the entire process, from design to manufacturing, is kept in house and undertaken by TEXPORT® staff. This gives the company total control over the quality of its garments at all times.
The commitment to research and operational analysis has contributed to the development of breakthrough patented design features that enhance ergonomics, increasing freedom of movement and reducing the risk of heat stress, while at the same time improving protection and comfort for the wearer.
These unique patented design features reduce the risk of common injuries in areas such as the shoulders, wrists and joints. TEXPORT® AIR BLOCKER® creates a permanent air cushion in the insulation system around the shoulders that increases protection from compression injuries while wearing a respirator. The ERGOPAD® is a cushioned ergonomically prefabricated pad that fits around the knee in any position and prevents pressure burns. Unlike aramid nonwovens, it resists excessive water absorption.
The continuous quest to keep improving and enhancing products to ensure the best possible combination of comfort and
A number of TEXPORT® innovations are designed to ensure the garment will consistently perform at its best throughout its operational lifetime. Internal repair apertures offer easy access for maintenance and the unique HPX SYSTEM® makes replacing a zip quick and easy rather than laborious and expensive. The TEXPORT® TRIPLE FABRIC® reflector strip is not only extremely breathable but is also less prone to scuffing from washing and day to day wear. When combined with the high quality of the garment, this type of innovation reduces the lifetime cost of PPE for customers.
TEXPORT®’s mission is to create the best possible protection for firefighters and the company’s specialist research and the development team is constantly innovating and designing tomorrow’s solutions, combining the latest fabric technology with a unique understanding of ergonomics. It’s an ongoing process that ensures TEXPORT® products will continue to set new standards in firefighter protection around the world.
