VIKING’s new triple-layered hoods
help protect your neck, ears and jaw area from dangerous particles
Between layers of comfortable viscose, we have added a paper-thin layer of DuPontTM Nomex® Nano Flex, which acts as a protective barrier against particles without compromising comfort.
Thinner and lighter than other FR materials, it’s a highly breathable, flame-resistant (FR) material with superior particle barrier performance.
The addition of Nomex® Nano Flex to a firefighter hood composite structure provides improved particle barrier protection in the neckline and upper jaw area that historically are known to be the most vulnerable and least protected.
To test the barrier performance, wear trials were conducted with hoods containing the Nomex® Nano Flex barrier in between the viscose layers on one-half of the hood. After the wear trials, the hoods were turned inside out and inspected. Compare the amount of particles penetrating the hood with or without the paper-thin Nomex® Nano Flex protective layer.
