Cincinnati, OH, January 5, 2012—MN8-Foxfire, the developer of breakthrough illuminating products for firefighters, introduces Foxfire illuminating helmet tetrahedrons, the company’s first product to combine reflectivity with MN8’s advanced photoluminescent technology.

Foxfire illuminating tetrahedrons and other products utilize an advanced photoluminescent technology that possess the unique capacity to absorb and store light and then release it as a bright luminance in the dark. When fully charged (by any light source), Foxfire products can glow for up to 17 hours.

“One of the top recommendations we have received from our fellow firefighters is that they would like to see reflectivity combined with our photoluminescent technology,” said Zachary Green, president of MN8-Foxfire. “Foxfire tetrahedrons were designed to provide traditional light reflectivity, and a photoluminescent glow in dark conditions when no light is available.”

The bright glow emitted from Foxfire’s helmet tetrahedrons and other products illuminates surroundings and serves as a light emitter, enabling firefighters to keep track of their crews in dark environments. It also assists in reducing firefighter disorientation. All of MN8’s products are designed with safety in mind, arming firefighters with necessary visibility tools in the most difficult situations.

The patented design of Foxfire illuminating helmet tetrahedrons features high- output photoluminescence and extreme reflectivity. The products are built off of a high temperature resistant fire retardant cloth to hold up to high heat conditions, utilizes state-of-the-art micro-prismatic technology that reflects back up to 250 percent of light and utilizes an industrial grade adhesive to ensure strong surface bonding.

Sold individually ($4.95) or in sets of eight ($24.95), Foxfire illuminating tetrahedrons are available from the MN8-Foxfire web store at www.store.mn8foxfire.com or through MN8-Foxfire’s distributor network.
