Proximity Fire Fighting Suits X30 Attack by Newtex. The engineers at Newtex designed the X30 Attack Proximity Fire Fighting Suit from the ground up to meet the EN 1486 standard for close proximity fire fighting gear.

The Z-Flex aluminized outer shell reflects 95% of radiant heat and withstands radiant temperatures up to 3000 F (1650 C). In addition to providing outstanding protection, Z-Flex is also the most durable aluminized material available and will not de-laminate under even the most demanding conditions. The Stedair moisture barrier and Tencate Aralite NP thermal barrier protect the wearer from conductive and convective heat and steam.

This suit can be used in a range of industries and applications including aircraft rescue fire fighting (ARFF), first response to oil and gas fires, and other proximity fire fighting scenarios.

When selecting a proximity or fire entry suit, it is important to consider the convective, conductive, and radiant heat risks in your work area and the length of exposure to that heat. The advanced aluminized outer shell of the X Series suits provides the ultimate protection from radiant energy, the heat transmitted from all hot objects. The X Series also provides protection from conductive and convective heat. The level of conductive and convective protection increases with each suit as you move from the lightest suit to the heaviest.

The Time to 2nd Degree Burn graph above illustrates the relative protective values of the X30 Attack Suit and standard structural firefighting gear. The results come from the Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) test which exposes samples to convective and radiant heat sources and measures the heat transferred through the test specimen to calculate a tolerance time to 2nd degree burn. The levels of exposure are extreme and not representative of most real world scenarios. Real world industrial maintenance and emergency response environments are likely to be unpredictable and vary from test conditions. We recommend only professionally trained industrial workers and first responders use these suits under established safety protocols.

Testing and Certification

The X30 Attack Proximity Fire Fighting Suit passes the EN 1486 test standard. The Z-Flex outer shell also meets or exceeds the additional specifications listed in the table below.

Test Description Standards
Radiant Heat ISO 6942, EN 366, ASTM F1939
Convective Heat ISO 9151, EN 367
Limited Flame Spread ISO 15025, EN 532
Molten Metal ISO 9185, EN 348, ASTM F955
Tear Resistance ISO 13937, EN 388

Personnel should wear fire resistant garments under the suit, including long sleeved shirt and full-length pants. See our "Related Products" section on this page.

NFPA 1851 recommends the mandatory retirement of Proximity (aluminized) suits 5 years after the date of manufacture. This does not mean the suit will or should remain in service the full 5 years. Early replacement may be required if the suit is damaged.
