An EN1486 certified suit for specialized firefighting

The engineers at Newtex designed the X30 Attack™ Proximity Fire Fighting Suit from the ground up to meet the EN 1486 standard for close proximity firefighting gear.

The Z-Flex® Aluminized Fabric outer shell reflects 95% of radiant heat and withstands radiant temperatures up to 3000°F (1650°C). In addition to providing outstanding protection, Z-Flex is also the most durable aluminized material available and will not delaminate under even the most demanding conditions. This cutting-edge suit also incorporates the latest technology from Stedfast and Tencate with a Stedair® moisture barrier and an Aralite® thermal barrier. All X Series suits are designed to be worn over standard industrial work wear. It is important for users to wear long-sleeve shirts and pants made with non-flammable fibers.

This suit can be used in a wide range of industries and applications including aircraft rescue firefighting (ARFF), first response to oil and gas fires, and other proximity firefighting scenarios.
