Advanced Fire Entry Suits X60 Newtex Chicago

Advanced Fire Entry Suits with Extended Back X60 by Newtex. The X60 Advanced Fire Entry Suit is a heavily insulated aluminized suit designed for fire entry and engulfment.

The suit features a Z-Flex aluminized outer shell which reflects 95% of radiant heat and withstands radiant temperatures up to 3000F (1650C). In addition to providing outstanding protection, Z-Flex is also the most durable aluminized material available and will not de-laminate under even the most demanding conditions. A foil layer beneath the outer shell, and O-PAN heat barrier, and two layers of fiberglass insulation work together to provide maximum protection for extended exposure to extreme temperatures.

This suit can be used in foundries, petrochemical plants, processing facilities, and other environments in which workers are at risk for engulfment.

When selecting a proximity or fire entry suit, it is important to consider the convective, conductive, and radiant heat risks in your work area and the length of exposure to that heat. The advanced aluminized outer shell of the X Series suits provides the ultimate protection from radiant energy, the heat transmitted from all hot objects. The X Series also provides protection from conductive and convective heat. The level of conductive and convective protection increases with each suit as you move from the most lightest suit to the heaviest.

The Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) graph above illustrates the relative protective values of the X40, X50, and X60 suits in relation to each other. The TPP test exposes samples to convective and radiant heat sources and measures the heat transferred through the test specimen to calculate a tolerance time to 2nd degree burn. The levels of exposure are extreme and not representative of most real world scenarios. Real world industrial maintenance and emergency response environments are likely to be unpredictable and vary from test conditions. We recommend only professionally trained industrial workers and first responders use these suits under established safety protocols.
