NFPA Performance Requirements
All Fire-Dex products go through rigorous testing to be certified as NFPA compliant. The testing and certification for NFPA compliance is always done by a 3rd party agency; mainly UL (Underwriters Laboratories) or SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) which is a subsidiary of ASTM International (American Society for Testing and Materials).
The following chart shows which NFPA standards our products must meet.
|NFPA Standard||Definition||Certified Products|
|Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting||All Fire-Dex Turnout Gear, Helmets, Boots, Hoods, & Dex-Pro Gloves|
