Contemporary outfits from HB Protective Wear for area firefighting and technical assistance as well als day-shift wear for firemen

HB Protective Wear has expanded its Flammgard® range and offers numerous new products for day-to-day firefighters. In addition to the state-specific "Bavaria" collection, which impresses with its modern design and particularly high wearing comfort, the new Flammgard® KLASSIK Green Turtle collection scores with environmentally friendly materials: polo shirts made from recycled polyester as well as shirts and blouses made from 100% organic cotton. 

HB also presents turnout gear made of particularly lightweight and highly functional material for wildland firefighting and technical assistance. All products are immediately available from stock. The RETTmobil trade fair from 15 to 17 May in Fulda offers the opportunity to see the new products up close in Hall G / Stand 1324.  

Flammgard® BAYERN
Daily duty made easy: thanks to the lightweight and stretchy fabric with 4% elastolefin, this new Flammgard® collection is particularly comfortable to wear. Comfortable knitted inserts on the jacket and an elasticated insert underneath the stretchy waistband, as well as pre-shaped knees, ensure plenty of freedom of movement.  Red trim details, ingenious pocket solutions and the modern cut make Flammgard® Bayern a real eye-catcher. The dark blue collection was developed for the Bavarian fire brigades and is available in men's and women's versions. 

100% Recycled: Our new polo shirts
The super-comfortable black and blue Flammgard® KLASSIK Green Turtle polo shirts are made from recycled piqué that is certified in accordance with the GRS Global Recycled Standard and OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100. The extremely lightweight fabric is particularly breathable and quick-drying thanks to Coolmax and ecofresh. The integrated silver ions also reduce bacterial activity by 99%. In addition, it offers UV protection up to factor 40. The polo shirts are available as men's and women's models and the design is adapted to the various VwVs of the federal states. 

100% Organic: Our new blouses and shirts
The new Flammgard® KLASSIK Green Turtle women's blouses and men's shirts are made from 100% organically grown cotton and certified in accordance with the GOTS Organic Textile Standard and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. The very light material is comfortable to wear, and the various VwVs of the federal states were also taken into account when developing the design. Women's and men's versions are available in both long and short sleeves in both colours. The shirts complement HB's new sustainable "Green Turtle" product line. 

HB-TECHNICAL RESCUE: The all-rounder for technical assistance 
This collection offers a wide range of useful features such as segmented reflective strips, high-visibility vest release, the option of attaching a back roll and Velcro fasteners. The parka, trousers and fleece jacket are made from a lightweight but robust fabric that protects against heat and flames. The parka is also rain-repellent, virus- and bacteria-proof and can be supplemented with a zip-in fleece jacket on colder days. 

Unter dem Namen HB-TECHNICAL RESCUE LITE gibt es zusätzlich eine Light-Version, die aus Jacke und Hose besteht. Sie ist aus  strapazierfähigem und flammhemmendem Gewebe gefertigt und ebenfalls mit DGUV-konformer Reflexbestreifung ausgestattet.

HB-Wildfire 2.0 for area firefighting
This collection is designed to meet the high demands placed on emergency crews when fighting wildfires: It protects against flames and is still comfortable and physically relieving, as the lightweight and hard-wearing outer material is very comfortable to wear. The workmanship ensures plenty of freedom of movement and all materials can withstand many washes. Thanks to the hydrophilic inner lining, which absorbs moisture and releases it again in the form of evaporative cooling, the wearer does not sweat so quickly. Particularly exposed areas are reinforced with a silicone-coated trim, and all pockets are finished with Velcro fasteners. 
HB-Wildfire 2.0 consists of a jacket, trousers and detachable braces and is certified to EN ISO 11612 and EN 15384, with a matching functional labelling collar. All colours and sizes can be freely combined.
