Gore’s revolutionary GORE® PARALLON™ System will be on show at AFAC this year along with the company’s range of high performance protective fabrics.
After several years of research, bringing together its technical expertise from around the world, Gore has developed a solution that removes the need to compromise comfort for thermal protection.
The GORE® PARALLON™ System is lightweight, breathable and waterproof, delivering high levels of thermal protection in firefighter Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). It reduces the risk of burn injuries and heat stress in wet and dry conditions.
The GORE® PARALLON™ System has been developed to specifically combat the risks associated with moisture and heat stress by introducing a unique new solution that incorporates a highly breathable Gore thermal barrier combined with a GORE-TEX® or CROSSTECH® Moisture barrier.
The full range of Gore fabrics developed for firefighter safety includes the GORE-TEX Fabric and CROSSTECH Fabric moisture barriers, which play a vital role in structural firefighting garments, providing durable, waterproof, breathable protection. Gore fabrics protect against the extremes of firefighting while keeping the wearer dry from inside and out.
Garments that incorporate Gore technology exceed industry standards for waterproofness and resistance to heat and flame. They provide firefighters with an increased level of comfort that is proven to enhance performance.
