Globe Guard™ Exposure Reduction System
The Globe Guard™ System, in combination with the most innovative turnout gear from Globe, provides firefighters the gold standard in helping reduce exposure to toxic substances without impeding performance.
GLOBE GUARD™ JACKET COMPONENT
Sewn into the thermal liner above the hemline and constructed of two layers – GORE® CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier and TECASAFE® PLUS for moisture management, high breathability, flame resistance, and active moisture wicking – to help reduce exposure at the jacket and pants interface. The Globe Guard™ Jacket Component is automatically engaged as part of the liner system when the jacket closures are secured.
GLOBE GUARD™ PANT FLY COMPONENT
Constructed of two layers – GORE® CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier and TECASAFE® PLUS for moisture management, high breathability, flame resistance, and active moisture wicking – and installed at the base of the fly to help reduce exposure.
GLOBE GUARD™ PANT CUFF COMPONENT
Constructed of two layers – GORE® CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier and TECASAFE® PLUS – and sewn to the liner system at the bottom hem of each leg to help reduce exposure at the pant cuff and boot interface.
On the jacket, a front closure with a zipper inside and hook and loop outside is recommended to help reduce exposure when properly secured. On the pants, the addition of the inside gusset helps to reduce exposure when the hook and loop fly closure is properly closed. At the jacket and glove interface, elasticized, adjustable sleeve wells constructed of GORE® CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier with wristers sewn to the liner is recommended to help keep toxic substances from entering the sleeves when the arms are raised. Components of the Globe Guard™ System are also available with Neoprene.
