TenCate Protective Fabrics - Made for Life

Generations of industry professionals — servicemen and women in fire, healthcare, military and police — rely on TenCare Protective Fabrics for safety, comfort and confidence.

TenCate Protective Fabrics has developed an all-new, highly innovative outer shell fabric – PBI® Peak 5. Designed to be a lightweight solution for firefighter turnout gear, PBI® Peak 5 is ground-breaking new phase in the evolution of outer shell fabrics. Weighing in at 5.6 ounces per square yard (190 gsm), PBI® Peak 5 delivers the highest percentage of PBI® fiber currently available in the outer shell market. By combining the unmatched thermal protection of PBI® with the time-tested strength of Kevlar® it’s an outer shell that delivers a one-two punch of maximum performance.

Engineered with patent-pending ENFORCE™ Technology, PBI® Peak 5 offers firefighters a balanced fabric that is strong throughout the gear, yet lighter in weight to provide better range-of-motion.

The next level in thermal liner technology, Titanium™ is a specially engineered face cloth that delivers sustained performance and lubricity through repeated launderings and normal use. The face cloth not only looks and feels great, it stays slick longer and slides on and off easily for faster response times.

Titanium™ features COOLDERM™ Technology which delivers unmatched moisture management to help keep firefighters cooler on the job. When it comes to fighting fires in harsh environments, staying cool and dry can make all the difference.

Tri-certified for EMS, USAR, and Wildlands, Agility® Tactical outer layer delivers adaptive protection for the modern first responder. This lightweight fabric for technical rescue outer layers is designed to maximize protection and comfort while increasing mobility — making it ideal for tight spaces and difficult extrications.
