Recognized as the technology leader and one of the largest global suppliers of fire-
fighting fabrics, Safety Components innovative fabric solutions continue to improve

the personal protective performance of outershell fabrics. Whether it’s enhanced,
durable water repellency for safer, lighter, more comfortable gear, or solution dyed
fibers for improved color consistency, or lower profile ripstop weaves for improved
resistance to abrasion, or most recently the inclusion of military grade Kevlar® for
improved durability…look to Safety Components for superior outershell fabric performance.

Technological advancements in firefighting fabrics extend through our complete line of
thermal liners. With innovations that address the key elements in thermal liner
performance such as moisture management, freedom of movement and weight gain.
As the last layer of defense, we understand the importance of properly engineered

thermal liner systems. That’s why we patented higher lubricity liners featuring
excellent moisture management and pure fiber battings for consistent TPP and
THL performance and water repellent spunlace for improved moisture wicking.
