OUR FOCUS IS ON HEAT STRESS -
Heat stress contributes to serious health conditions, including heat stroke, cardiac fatigue and cardiovascular failure. It occurs when the body's temperature rises rapidly and is unable to self-regulate back to its core temperature.
Given the strenuous nature of the job, firefighters are exposed to heat stress far more often than the general public. As the #1 cause of LODDs worldwide, it was important to Fire-Dex to revolutionize the way we manufacture turnout gear.
TECGEN71 is the first of its kind to address this growing health concern with innovative technology aimed at providing the perfect balance of breathability, comfort, TPP and THL, all while offering an overall reduction in composite weight.
