Hangout: Live from TenCate

Live from TenCate Protective Fabrics headquarters in Georgia, join Fire Engineering Editor in Chief Bobby Halton as he visits with TenCate’s Mike Stanhope and Bart McCool.  They will explain why specifying certain fabrics is very important when choosing gear, the benefits from protection, to comfort, to durability, to cleaning. TenCate will also share some upcoming innovations to look out for in the coming year.

TenCate Protective Fabrics uses fiber from all the names firefighters trust like PBI and DuPont Kevlar. In our four U.S. manufacturing plants, our 500+ employees make the inherent flame-resistant fabrics that all garment manufacturers then use to create the structural turnout gear, wildland gear and stationwear more firefighters in the world wear than anyone else.  Seven out of 10 U.S. firefighters rely on the technical textiles from TenCate Protective Fabrics.
