PBI HOODS

THE MOST PROTECTIVE PARTICLE-BLOCKING HOODS AVAILABLE

Today’s firefighters deserve the best protection, from head to toe. And that means protective hoods made with PBI. No other fabric stands up as well against heat and flames. No other fabric offers you such lightweight comfort with no shrinkage or brittleness even in critical circumstances. No other fabric gives you state-of-the-art premium thermal protection to protect you and the particulate barrier. Below is a list of particulate-blocking hoods made with PBI.
