For more than 30 years, W. L. Gore & Associates has pioneered high-performance fabrics for technical applications — emergency response, fire, law, ChemBio, and military. Specializing in protective barriers, Gore works with leading gear manufacturers to deliver high-quality footwear, gloves, jackets, pants, and suits using CROSSTECH®, GORE® CHEMPAK®, and GORE-TEX® fabrics. For information about Gore’s complete line of fabrics and the products in which they are used, visit www.GoreProtectiveFabrics.com.
Gore engineers each barrier based on the concept of fitness for use, which means delivering the best product to meet the demands of a specific application. When developing a protective barrier, Gore collaborates with users to understand their environment, their challenges, and the hazards they face — such as extreme temperatures at a fire, chemicals and body fluids at an accident scene, or chemical warfare agents at a terrorist incident. Gore combines this understanding with its extensive knowledge of membrane technology to engineer a barrier fit for each application, ensuring the fabric is fit for use.
Because every fire department’s needs are different, Gore’s line of breathable moisture barriers spans the range of durability and performance while protecting against exposure to blood, body fluids, NFPA common chemicals, and water. In addition, all of these barriers help manage heat stress better throughout a broad range of environmental conditions that firefighters frequently encounter – particularly those with warmer temperatures and low radiant heat levels.
