BarriAire Silver Particulate Hood Comprehensive Coverage

Extended Bib with Nomex® Nano Flex Sure‑Fit Panel and Face Opening

39707-00-169093

Particulate coverage throughout entire head including Sure‑Fit panel at crown. Front and back bib extends particulate barrier coverage beyond critical areas as identified by NFPA – Maximum Protection. UL Classified to NFPA 1971 Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting – Current Edition. Certification to the NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition Option for Particulate Protection – Current Edition.

Fabric Description:

BarriAire Silver Laminate FR Composite: An innovative lamination process, which covers only 50% of the material, allows for great air permeability and flexibility. The pore matrix created by the Nomex® Nano Flex fiber allows moisture absorption three times faster than PTFE laminates. The materials and lamination process creates a fabric that has unparalleled particulate efficiency, comfort and protection.

Fluorescent Aerosol Screening Test

FAST UV-light photographs without Nomex® Nano Flex (left) and with Nomex® (right) illustrating after particle exposure for the test subject’s head and neck; bright yellow areas show were particles penetrated the ensemble.

High Magnification Fiber Comparison

Nomex® Nano Flex is an elastic nonwoven made of submicron continuous and inherently flame-resistant fibers. It is thinner and lighter weight than typical nonwoven materials. Nomex® Nano Flex is highly breathable and combines exceptional elasticity with superior particulate blocking performance.

Particulate Protection

BarriAire Particulate Barrier Technology products offer more protection, comfort and value. BarriAire particulate products combine two layers of proven flame resistant fabric and a middle layer of ultra-lightweight DuPont Nomex® Nano Flex fabric which blocks penetration of 96% (BarriAire Gold quilted composite) to 98.8% (BarriAire Silver laminated composite) of harmful submicron size particulates. BarriAire Gold quilted composite fabrics recently achieved Viral Filtration Efficiency (VFE) Rating of 96.8% and Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) Rating of 97.9%. BarriAire Silver laminated composite fabrics recently achieved VFE Rating of 99.7% and BFE Rating of 99.9% (VFE and BFE testing as conducted by Nelson Labs, U.S.A.).
