Globe Manufacturing Company launches ATHLETIX™, turnout gear is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. New material technology enables the all-new athletic design with stretch fabrics that allow closer, body-contoured fit to provide unprecedented range of motion with less bulk, more flexibility, and lighter weight.
Firefighters informed and inspired ATHLETIX™, a step-change in firefighter personal protective equipment. We interviewed hundreds of firefighters to get a 360-degree view of their experience wearing turnout gear and shared our findings with our supplier partners to develop the technology that enables this all-new design.
New PBI® STRETCH fabric with KEVLAR® allows closer, less bulky fit with unprecedented range of motion and more flexibility, while providing premium thermal break open protection.
New NOMEX® NANO thermal barrier material is thinner, lighter, more flexible, more breathable, and quicker drying.
New 3M™ SCOTCHLITE™ COMFORT TRIM reflective material is segmented and heat sealed to be lighter, more flexible, and breathable without sacrificing visibility.
Globe ATHLETIX™ won the 2016 International Achievement Awards (IAA) Award of Excellence and Best in Category for Advanced Textiles by Industrial Fabrics Association International. IAA recognizes excellence in design and innovation in the specialty fabrics and technical textiles industry.
