The Fire Explorer by TEXPORT® is a protective suit with a very technically sophisticated cut and form. The successful product series has undergone a facelift and optimisation. In addition to an extended range of colours and optimal visibility in use, it combines the greatest level of protection with TEXPORT®’s usual high degree of wearing comfort. The Fire Explorer, with its Drag and Loop system, can also be used optionally as an integrated rescue system (IRS) with our innovative belt system series.

Material Composition

X-Treme®

When fighting fires, two serious dangers are direct flames and heat radiation. If the heat penetrates the material of the protective clothing, it can lead to burns to the body. The thermal insulation can delay this decisively – by just those few seconds that are required. Therefore, TEXPORT® has developed the material composition X-TREME®. X-TREME® offers notably more protection and comfort (thanks to its innovative material composition and new high-tech intermediate layer) than is required by the European EN 469 norm. The heat radiation is blocked for a long period of time.

X-Treme® light

X-TREME® light offers heat protection that significantly exceeds the values set out in the European norm EN 469, whether in direct contact with flames or heat radiation. When developing X-TREME light, the focus has been strongly on the weight. X-TREME® light combines excellent protection with significantly improved comfort, supported by the material’s light weight.

Composition of the membrane with spacer

GORE-TEX AIRLOCK® provides high thermal protection. By removing the textile insulation, the heat stress is reduced and the moisture absorption minimised. At the same time, this innovative material guarantees optimum freedom of movement and quick redrying.

Innovative outer materials

IB-TEX®

With IB-TEX®, TEXPORT® presents a Nomex® premium product that sets new standards. The fabric, produced by IBENA® exclusively for TEXPORT®, combines extremely high mechanical values with a unique aesthetic. The reason for this lies in the innovative design: instead of using Para-Aramid, the strength of the fabric is achieved by working in aromatic polyesters. IB-TEX® is made up of 73 % aromatic polyamide (Aramid/Nomex®), 25 % aromatic PES and 2 % carbon fibre. That is how IB-TEX® guarantees the best protection effect. As a result of its special PowerShell finishing, re-waterproofing is not required until after 40 washing cycles.

Highlights

Airblocker®

The insulation system in the shoulder area guarantees more safety through a permanent air cushion that rises from protectors in the inner lining and also stays upright when carrying respiratory protective equipment. The trapped air isolates this exposed area.

HPX-System®

With the HPX System®, changing a defective zip is no longer expensive and complicated, but simple and affordable. Through the High PerformanceeXchange System, or HPX System, the lifespan of protective clothing is increased significantly. In addition, thanks to the striking design it is immediately visible whether or not the front part is fully closed. That makes it even safer.

TEXPORT® Triple Fabric®

The TEXPORT® Triple Fabric® is a textile reflective stripe that is made from fabric and therefore is extremely breathable and more durable. The reflective, silverstripe material composition, patented by 3M*, adheres very well to the structure of the soft fabric. In addition, the TEXPORT® Triple Fabric® is abraded less severely through wear and washing.

Wicking Barrier

The wicking barrier is permanently waterproof, breathable and wash-resistant. That means even after many uses and washes, the clothing’s lining remains completely dry thanks to the GORE-TEX barrier, as no more moisture can enter through the seams.

Ergopad®

The TEXPORT® Ergopad® is a cushioned, ergonomically preformed knee pad that fits the knee in every place and avoids creating pressure marks. It is flame-resistant and does not become saturated with water, in contrast to the aramid non-woven padding, so that the trousers dry much more quickly after washing.
