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.
The VIKING’s PartX™ technology is the result of years of development and refinement. Our global presence allows us the unique ability to draw on research and technological progress in PPE materials from around the world.
closing the gaps
Layered filtration cuffs
We’ve designed PartX™ cuffs to defend against particleentry with a special filtering solution, without uncomfortable tightening around the wrists.
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.
Extra protection at waist
To further reinforce the protective barrier, we’ve designed a waist gaiter ensuring 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 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.
