TECGEN71 Outer Shell
TECGEN71 IS THE ONLY OUTER SHELL THAT CAN BE PAIRED WITH
THE LIGHTEST THERMAL LINERS AND MOISTURE BARRIERS AVAILABLE ON TODAY'S MARKET
DUE TO ITS INCREASED BREATHABILITY AND THERMAL PROTECTION.
OUR FOCUS IS ON HEAT STRESS
Heat stress contributes to serious health conditions, including heat stroke, cardiac fatigue and cardiovascular failure. It occurs when the body's temperature rises rapidly and is unable to self-regulate back to its core temperature.
Given the strenuous nature of the job, firefighters are exposed to heat stress far more often than the general public. As the #1 cause of LODDs worldwide, it was important to Fire-Dex to revolutionize the way we manufacture turnout gear.
Our TECGEN71 outer shell is the first of its kind to address this growing health concern with innovative technology aimed at providing the perfect balance of breathability, comfort, TPP and THL, all while offering an overall reduction in composite weight.

"I can tell you after wearing this gear for two years that I can do more burns, evolutions, in one day, than in some gear that's overbuilt to protect you thermally but doesn't think about your body's physiology and all the stress placed on it."
