MSA Bristol, formally known as Bristol Uniforms, a leading designer and manufacturer of protective clothing for emergency services is now part of MSA Safety, a global leader in the development, manufacture and supply of ground-breaking safety products and technology for more than 100 years.

The company’s core product offerings for the fire industry including SCBA, firefighter helmets, thermal imaging cameras, gas and flame detection systems, portable gas detection instruments and fall protection devices. By combining the expertise of these two organisations, customers can now experience a simplified purchasing and procurement process with one point of contact for quality, head-to-toe protection they can trust. MSA’s iconic Gallet F1 XF helmet and M1 SCBA, for example, fit particularly well with Bristol’s extensive range of hoods and jackets, providing seamless protection from a single supplier. MSA Bristol was established in 1801 as a clothing manufacturer, the company began manufacturing fire clothing in 1962 and has gone on to become a pioneer in the development of advanced firefighter PPE.

Today, MSA Bristol supplies a wide range of specialist firefighter protective clothing to meet the demanding and complex nature of 21st century firefighting.

With a global reputation for new product development and technical innovation, MSA Bristol is at the forefront of new PPE developments. Its ground-breaking research into the physiological impact of protective clothing on firefighter health, saw it introduce lighter weight structural PPE. Following on from the success of its lightweight and ergonomic XFlex PPE range, Bristol has recently launched a brand-new structural firefighting range named EOS, which offers a unique combination of quality specialist fabrics, innovative protective design features, and modern, ergonomic styling.

MSA Bristol also supplies firefighting PPE for the Collaborative Procurement Framework. This Framework is accessible to all Local Authority Fire and Rescue Services across the UK and gives them access to high quality PPE ensembles, whilst saving them considerable time and resources by simplifying and streamlining the procurement process.

PPE standards are a vital component in the specification of high-performance firefighter clothing. Bristol’s firefighter garments comply with many internationally recognised performance and safety standards including European, NFPA, Australian, New Zealand and ISO standards. For many years Bristol’s technical staff have sat on and provide expertise to European standards drafting committees that develop standards for structural, technical rescue and wildland PPE.

MSA Bristol provides a comprehensive garment maintenance service. This includes garment inspection, washing, repair, decontamination and condition coding. Through regular servicing, PPE lasts longer and remains fully fit for purpose.

Internationally, MSA Bristol supplies PPE to fire and rescue services in over 110 countries through its international network of over 70 distributors. It works closely with these distributors, and provides product and technical assistance to governments, fire authorities and industrial users around the world.
