This Australian/New Zealand standard is intended to provide manufacturers, purchasers and users with minimum performance requirements for wildland firefighters’ protective clothing designed for use for extended periods during wildland firefighting and associated activities.
Wildland fire fighting involves work primarily in summer temperatures for many hours where the firefighter may develop high levels of metabolic heat. Consequently, the protective clothing should be light, flexible and proportionate to the risks the firefighter may be exposed to while remaining effective without inducing heat stress to the wearer.
Our Synergy Pro fabric complies with this standard. Reach out to our international market manager to learn more.
