Fire-Dex Construction

Fire-Dex Express Gear is made with the same quality construction that makes all Fire-Dex Turnouts superior.

From pattern design to manufacturing and sewing methods, from seam construction to testing and inspections, Fire-Dex goes the extra mile to ensure you have the highest quality garment possible. 

Below are just a few examples of the quality construction and attention to detail that is put into the design and manufacturing of Fire-Dex Turnout Gear.

Double Lock Stitching

Fire-Dex uses lock stitching on all major seams, cuffs, and reinforcements, with 4 rows of lock stitch on all reflective trim and hook & loop closure material.

Deep Water Wells

Deep sleeve water wells provide a natural glove/sleeve interface, keeping water out of the inside of sleeves.

Superior Pockets

All Bellows Pockets are reinforced with Kevlar® for the best cut resistance. All Radio Pockets are fully lined with moisture barrier, including the pocket flap. All pocket flaps are extra long to ensure complete closure, no matter the bulk inside.

Liner Tabs

Liner retention snap tabs come standard on all Fire-Dex coats to prevent "liner creep-up". Our standard liner tabs at the pant cuff are placed at the front and back to avoid wear between legs.

Detailed & Documented Moisture Barrier Seam Testing

We are partnered with both Moisture Barrier suppliers, W.L. Gore and Stedfast, and established a controlled environment for the most effective seam sealing. Every 10th garment is tested!

Hook & D Rivets

Always reinforced with a leather backing.

Moisture & Thermal Sewn Together

Prevents debris from entering between the layers and causing damaging abrasion to the moisture barrier. Inspection Ports can be added to any Fire-Dex Custom Turnout Coat or Pant.

Continuous Inspections Throughout Construction

Seventeen (17) inspection points throughout the process. Each team has an inspection station with electronic access to all specifications and work instructions.

Extra Thermal in High Compression Areas

Additional thermal protection is sewn to all high compression areas, such as knees, elbows, and shoulders, standard.
