Standards EN469:2005 and NFPA 1971:2007
Structural firefighter clothing, sometimes also referred to as bunker or turnout gear, is the principal type of personal protective equipment (PPE) used by municipal and industrial firefighters.
All of our main structural styles are made to conform to the most widely used standard outside of North America, EN469:2005, and offer Level 2 protection.
To do so, garments must provide;
- An outer layer to protect against flame injury
- A moisture barrier to protect against water penetration whilst allowing internal moisture vapour to escape
- An inner thermal barrier and lining to protect against heat from proximity to flame
For more details about the technical performance of our structural garments see our structural brochure which also includes information about the other styles available to meet North American and international performance standar ds.
