Firefighters depend on their footwear for protection in the toughest environments. PBI fabric is used in a range of boots and is lighter than other footwear materials, adding flexibility and increasing comfort and breathability to reduce the risk of heat stress.
The fabric is washable and easy to clean, reducing the risk of contamination.
PBI offers more effective heat protection than most other heavier alternatives. It is inherently flame resistant and will not become brittle or break open when exposed to fire.
Boots made with PBI fabric deliver a combination of high performance protection, comfort and flexibility.
