COBRA BarriAire Gold Particulate Blocking Firefighting Hoods

The Difference is in the Details

  • Proprietary PGI gold FR fabric for excellent heat, flame and thermal resistance with superior tensile and tear strength for longer wear life.
  • BarriAire Gold Hoods combine an outer layer of PGI proprietary gold FR fabric and an inner layer of ultra‑lightweight, DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex fabric, which can inhibit penetration of many small size harmful particles.
  • Lightweight with exceptional breathability, weight similar to hoods without a particulate barrier.
  • Unlike laminated PTFE barrier hoods, BarriAire™ Gold Hoods are quiet and allow excellent hearing. Laminated PTFE hoods are annoyingly loud making a crackle noise with virtually every movement, adversely affecting communication in situational awareness.
  • Uniquely quilted to stabilize and enhance particulate barrier durability.
  • Exceeds industry standards of blocking 90 percent of particles between 0.1 and 1.0 microns in size.
  • Inner fabric engineered to wick moisture from skin, through fabric, to outer shell where it evaporates for a drier more comfortable experience.
  • Outer shell fabric features a proprietary DWR finish which allows hood to dry 2x‑3x faster than non-treated fabrics, reduces build‑up of toxic residue that is easily absorbed by non-treated fabrics and enhances the release of contaminates during washing.
  • Fabric designed with a softer hand and is hypoallergenic making it more comfortable next to the skin.
  • Built-in stretch and recovery, to better conform to the head and neck for true one size fits all sizing.
  • Attractive gold color allows you to detect when the hood’s soiled and needs cleaning.
  • Fabric is inherently static resistant.
  • Generous cut with a little “ease” built into the design so the hood doesn’t fit skin tight — creates a layer of air between the hood and head which improves thermal resistance from flame and heat.
  • Stronger, less bulky stitching — all quilting done with CRAQ SPUN® meta‑aramid thread.
  • Extra-long length (23") front and back, ensures hood stays tucked‑in even after laundry shrinkage.
  • UL Certified thermal patch label facilitates tracking and identification through barcoding, sequential numbering and personalization.
  • UL Classified to NFPA 1971 Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting – Current Edition.
  • Certification to the NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition Option for Particulate Protection – Current Edition.
  • EN13911: 2017.

FIRELINE Multi Mission Technical Rescue Gear

Innovative Design for More of What You Do

Lightweight, flexible and more responsive, FireLine™ Multi Mission PPE is built for the work you do. Innovative fabrics offer the best combination of flash fire, thermal protection and abrasion resistance in a single-layer garment. Innovative design with articulated elbows and knees, generous gusseting, radial sleeves and anatomical patterning provides unrivaled freedom of movement. High quality construction and more options for truly custom gear mean you have the right gear, to do the right job, day in and day out. FireLine™ Multi Mission garments offer first responders peace‑of‑mind protection with enhanced comfort, mobility and best‑in‑class performance.

Heat Stress

The number one fatality in line of duty deaths among firefighters and first responders is sudden cardiac arrest, most of which can be attributed to heat stress, overexertion and pre-existing medical conditions. Studies have shown that modified PPE can substantially reduce heat stress and firefighter fatigue. The weight and bulkiness of traditional turnout gear tends to increase body temperature by retaining the heat built up internally while on the job. Elevated body temperatures can increase clotting, which can also contribute to sudden cardiac arrest while performing routine tasks. FireLine™ Multi Mission PPE is lightweight, more flexible and ergonomically designed to offer enhanced evaporative cooling — reducing heat stress and overall firefighter fatigue.

Lightweight, Breathable and More Comfortable

FireLine™ Multi Mission PPE is designed to be a lightweight, flexible and breathable alternative to traditional turnout gear. Traditional turnout gear is heavy, bulky, locks in moisture and air — whereas FireLine™ Multi Mission PPE pulls sweat from the skin by moving it to the surface so it rapidly evaporates, allowing the wearer to remain cooler and drier, reducing the potential for heat stress while improving overall performance of routine tasks. FireLine™ Multi Mission garments are engineered to maximize protection, comfort and mobility at a price that’s about one-third the cost of traditional turnout gear.

Cobra BarriAire Gold Particulate Blocking Hoods

Experience the Only Particulate Barrier Hood That Feels Barrier‑less
 
Can less really be more? Only if it’s a COBRA™ BarriAire™ Gold Hood. Fact is, in wear trials firefighters found the weight, breathability and feel comparable to that of a traditional hood. Additionally, BarriAire Gold Hoods are not loud like PTFE laminated hoods, which can adversely affect a firefighter’s ability to communicate and situational awareness. And, BarriAire Gold Hoods offer more protection from harmful particles and contaminants in the areas that pose greatest risk of exposure. BarriAire Gold Hoods combine an outer layer of PGI proprietary gold FR fabric and an inner layer of ultra‑lightweight, DuPont™ Nomex®Nano Flex fabric, which can inhibit penetration of many small size harmful particles. BarriAire Gold Hoods combine superior comfort, increased protection and maximum durability. Your fire hood is an investment in your health and safety — go for the gold, BarriAire Gold Hoods only from PGI.
