STEDFAST Inc. has introduced a highly breathable, air permeable, flexible, and flame resistant material offering superior particulate blocking performances. Stedair® PREVENT, consists of a composite barrier made from Stedair® moisture barriers proprietary technology.
Firefighter's neck and head areas are exposed and highly sensitive to concentrations of toxic chemicals and permeation to the skin. Average hoods offer a limited protection against these toxic particles.
Stedair® PREVENT offers outstanding breathability, increased air permeability and a unique construction for ease of movement and flexibility. These combined properties also enable Stedair® PREVENT to minimize heat stress.
Stedair® PREVENT when tested accordingly to NFPA 1971 not only meets the required 90% blocking efficiency but surpasses with results of 99.99% blocking efficiency with marginal loss after extreme conditioning against particle size.
