FXM Custom Turnouts

Proven Performance

Traditional, proven performance characteristics paired with
the latest in comfort features in a modern style turnout.

Certified to NFPA 1971.

Product Features

FXM is fully-customized fire gear that features a modern tapered hem coat that is longer in the back and shorter in front giving you maximum coverage where you need it, and just as importantly, less where you don’t. In addition, FXM incorporates the DexFlex™ knees and elbows that are pre-bent for more flexibility and freedom of movement and a seamless crotch gusset for less restriction and more durability.

All features shown below come standard on FXM.

Modern Tapered Hem

Shorter in front and longer in back - providing you coverage where you need it most without covering upper thigh and restricting movement.

FXM Collar

Fire-Dex Collar

Thermal and moisture barriers continue through the very top of the collar and provides full protection without needing a throat strap.

DexFlex™ Elbows

Added pleats shape the sleeve to the natural bend of the arm and provides unrestricted arm movement.

Regular Rise, Traditional Pant

FXM pants have a traditional waist, with no rear bib and a regular rise.

DexFlex™ Knee

Pre-bent leg design reduces restriction when crawling, climbing or kneeling.

DexCuff™ Reverse Tapered Cuffs

Cuff is tapered up in the back to minimize wear and tear from touching the ground.

Seamless Crotch Gusset

Less restriction for maximum comfort, flexibility, and durability.

Fire-Dex Construction

From pattern design and manufacturing to seam construction and inspections, Fire-Dex goes the extra mile to ensure you have gear that fits correctly and works well with other equipment. All custom turnouts come in custom coat lengths, inseams, and sleeve lengths to ensure the best fit.

Below are just a few examples of the 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 Well

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.

Four Point Liner Tabs

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.

hydostatic tester

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

Hook & D Rivets

Always reinforced with a leather backing.

Sewn Layers of Turnout Composite

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 inspection

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 protection in compression areas

Extra Thermal in High Compression Areas

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