PBI Matrix arrives in Europe – Copenhagen being the first European city converting into a new generation of protection for fire fighters

PBi Matrix – The Power Grid – has been designed to take PBI´s well known proven protective characteristics to a whole new level by combining unmatched flame and thermal protection with unsurpassed strength and durability. Once the fabric had passed extensive wear trials across Europe PBI Performance Products informed the fire service market about the commercial availability from Sep 2008 onwards.
PBI is very proud now to announce that as the first European Metro city brigade Copenhagen, Denmark decided early this year to switch over to this new outershell fabric and the Danish capital received the first set of Matrix bunker gear in August.
Quite a number of brigades have already announced to upgrade their gear with Matrix, too.
The results and feedback of these mentioned wear trials in Europe have delivered excellent performance features and confirm what fire fighters in USA have been experiencing for the last three years after the US version of PBI Matrix had been introduced – a new unseen before performance level with regards to protection, wear comfort and durability.
PBI has now licensed first class partners in the textile chain to produce and market this product in Europe.
Please contact PBI for learning more about the outstanding features of this new product and where to source your gear from.
