Developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and North Carolina State University’s Textile Protection and Comfort Center, RedZone, the only gear tested, proven and verified by UL to block particulates features particulate-blocking zones designed to help reduce your exposure to the dangers lurking in fireground smoke.
ZONE 1: PARTICULATE-BLOCKING HOOD
A breathable, ultra-soft hood with StedAir® PREVENT protects the head and neck from particulates, while also providing excellent mobility and unrestricted hearing during firefighting activities.
ZONE 2: ARM GUARD
Elasticized wrist shields and enhanced IsoDri® knit wristlets with Nomex® Nano Flex verified by UL to block particulates at the coat-to-glove interface.
ZONE 3: CORE GUARD
A Nomex® Nano multi-layered composite with an elasticized band is verified by UL to reduce particulate ingress at the coat-to-pant interface. The Core Guard also features LION’s exclusive Glide Black Ice™ face cloth.
ZONE 4: CLOSURE GUARD
UL-verified closure guard engages with just one zip. No extra steps to don the gear. Red hook and loop indicates when turnout coat is properly closed.
ZONE 5: LEG GUARD
Together, the elasticized ankle shield and Nomex® Nano Flex calf protector is verified by UL to block particulate exposure at the pant-to-boot interface.
