Fire & Safety
Gore’s full line of protective barriers serves the first responder during structural firefighting, technical response, EMS, and domestic preparedness activities. Gore works with leading gear manufacturers to deliver high-quality footwear, gloves, turnout gear, and suits using CROSSTECH®, GORE® RT7100, and GORE® CHEMPAK® fabrics.

The latest moisture barrier for turnout gear – CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier – maintains the same high level of breathability as the original CROSSTECH® moisture barrier, with the added benefit of more durable performance in a wide range of environmental conditions. For those who are tough on their gear, CROSSTECH® 3-layer moisture barrier is the most durable barrier on the market today – delivering rugged, long-lasting protection against abrasion and wear without compromising liquid protection. GORE® RT7100 moisture barrier offers high levels of thermal protection and liquid penetration resistance unmatched in its price range.
