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.
VIKING’s PartX™ technology is the result of years of development and refinement, taking advantage of technological progress in personal protective equipment materials, multi-layer designs and particle filtering capabilities from around the world.

To test the barrier performance, wear trials were conducted with hoods containing the DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex barrier in between the knit layers on one half of the hood. After the wear trials, the hoods were turned inside out and inspected for contamination. Compare the amount of particles penetrating the hood with or without the paper-thin DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex protective layer.
