For all of the Fire Survivor jackets with the Bear and Loop functions, our innovative belt system series by TEXPORT® can be implemented as an optional integrated rescue system (IRS).

The varied belt systems stand out through heat protection, comfort and simple handling. Thanks to the extensive range of accessories, there is also the possibility to put together systems individually and in doing so to meet the most varied requirements of a fire department. Another advantage is that the harness / rescue strap can very easily be threaded in and out through the well-thoughtout design.

Therefore, standard inspection, maintenance and correct cleaning of the jacket are made easier.

The innovative 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 with dual membrane system
The GORE® PARALLON® system combines two laminates that function as moisture barriers for the first time, between which the thermal protective layer is bedded. This design guarantees high breathability and quickly wicks the moisture away from the skin. At the same time, it prevents moisture from outside from permeating. The insulation layer remains as dry as possible and offers reliable protection from heat.

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.

Nomex® NXT
With the new DuPontTM Nomex® NXT, the quality of the reputable Nomex® Outershell Tough has once again been significantly improved. The new technical design guarantees at once both maximum comfort to wear and high protection.

PBI® NEO®
High mechanical strength, combined with the well-known, established benefits of PBI®, makes PBI® NEO® an excellent addition to the PBI® outer layers. The high tensile strength and tear resistance speak for themselves. Thanks to the very good wash resistance, the PBI® NEO® maintains its smart appearance even after many washes. PBI® fabrics do not melt or shrink and do not crack after exposure to heat and flames. As a result of its special PowerShell finishing, re-waterproofing is not required until after 30 washing cycles.

PBI® MATRIX
PBI® MATRIX combines the high-quality heat and flame resistance of PBI® Gold with a matrix made of fixed para-aramid filament to increase the mechanical stability and lifespan. PBI® MATRIX does not become brittle, does not shrink and does not break apart on exposure to heat and flames.

Fire Survivor Highlights

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.

Fire Survivor Jacket 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.

Fire Survivor Trousers Highlights

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.
