Fighting for your complete protection
Introducing a multi-faceted particle protection
strategy to suit the way you work
Firefighting is difficult work – and so is the task of protecting firefighters from carcinogens and other harmful particles. At VIKING, we’re focused on continuous development of our PartX™ technology, a multi-faceted, flexible approach to meeting complex and varying needs.
By working with researchers and experienced firefighters, and calling for more attention to the dangers of hazardous particles, VIKING has continually spearheaded the world’s efforts to address this potential danger to health and well-being.
Committed to winning
We test every component until there’s no doubt that we’ve done everything possible with the best of today’s approaches and materials.
closing the gaps
Working together with some of the greatest firefighters in the field, VIKING has pioneered and proven tactical PartX™ solutions offering a completely new level of particle protection.
Firmly closed cuffs
We’ve designed PartX™ cuffs to defend against particle
entry with a special filtering solution, without
uncomfortable tightening around the wrists.
On scene removable outer shell
The VIKING MACS model has an outer shell that can be easily
detached before returning to the station, reducing exposure
to potentially harmful particles.

Pant cuffs with special closures
Unnoticed, particles have a tendency
to slip in under hemlines. The new PartX™ closure helps prevent particles from entering while maintaining excellent mobility.
Particle filtration hood
PartX™ turnout gear can be integrated
with VIKING’s latest firefighting hoods
equipped with DuPont™ Nomex®
Nano Flex technology

Extra protection at waist
To further reinforce the protective
barrier, we’ve designed a waist
gaiter insuring better wearability
and comfort. This feature comes as a
standard when selecting PartX™ cuffs.
See the difference
To test the barrier performance, wear trials were conducted with hoods containing the Nomex® Nano Flex barrier in between the viscose layers on one-half of the hood. After the wear trials, the hoods were turned inside out and inspected. Compare the amount of particles penetrating the hood with or without the paper-thin Nomex® Nano Flex protective layer.

On scene, detachable outer shell
VIKING MACS features an outer shell that can easily be detached by the firefighter on scene after exposure at an incident, leaving theinner liner as a fully wearable suit to be worn during debriefing and the return to the station.
Even with the outer shell removed, the suit continues to protect the wearer from the most common dangerous chemicals.
