Firefighter turnout gear, like outerwear in general, is cut larger than the body to accommodate movement and layers under the gear. Typically we add about 10 inches in oversize to a jacket. In addition, we add length and fullness where the body bends so that firefighters won’t be restricted when they move. But this approach makes turnout gear bulky.

A Japanese company reached out to us to develop a heat shield barrier system that can be used for controlling nuclear power plants during natural disasters. The client needed to protect existing cable trays from high temperatures and fire, because during the Fukushima Daichi plant disaster, the controlling cable systems for the plant were destroyed by the fires, and thus the plant was unable to control its systems. The interior of the heat shield needed to withstand internal temperatures of 120 degrees C to 180 degrees C while the exterior (i.e. the flame exposed side) had to withstand a constant temperature of 1200 degrees C for a time period of up to 4 hours. We accomplished such and extreme requirement by using a combination of proprietary designed flexible ceramic and other materials that we had previously used in our aerospace applications. The assemblies were tested per ISO834 and passed all requirements including bringing down the temperature from 1200 degrees C on the flame exposed side of the assembly to 120 degrees C and 180 degrees C range on the inside of the assembly for a period that exceeded the 4 hour criterion.

We fabricated custom shade/sail sling hammocks each 15’ x 16’ for the chimpanzee exhibit at the zoo. Each sling is manufactured using Nicofab Woven heavy weight polypropylene tarp fabric. This material is highly ultraviolet resistant due to the amount of carbon black used. A reinforced 2” webbing was sewn around shade sail perimeters. We mechanically fastened the fabric to a fire hose which was mounted to existing wood posts (tree trunks) in the outdoor exhibit viewing area.
