INNOTEX GRAY HOOD
The INNOTEX GRAYTM* Hood 25 is a particulate blocking hood designed to address this very issue. It helps to dramatically reduce the risks of carcinogenic particulate contamination while maintaining air permeability.
Developed to meet the proposed requirements of NFPA 1971, 2018 edition, the particulate blocking layer blocks carcinogenic particulates 0.1 μm to 1.0 μm that are found in the combustion of structural fires by greater than 98%. Yet, that same layer also allows for air permeation, which is essential to reduce the risk of increased core temperature.
THE INNOTEX GRAYTM HOOD 25 USES THE SAME 3-LAYER APPROACH AS TURNOUT GEAR.
LAYER 1: The exterior layer is a 20%/80% Nomex/Lenzing blend (8 oz/yd2), providing good, reliable performance.
LAYER 2: The middle layer consists of a proprietary version of Stedair® PREVENT. This layer blocks carcinogenic particulates 0.1 μm to 1.0 μm (microns) by greater than 98%. NFPA 1971, 2018 edition will require a minimum of 90%.
Unlike some barriers, it is air permeable, which means
air freely passes through it, letting body heat dissipate
and helping reduce the risk of increased core temperature. This layer also offers a 100% coverage throughout the entire hood.
LAYER 3: The inner layer is a 100% FR viscose multi-filament liner. It gives a noticeably cool feeling when worn and has superior wicking abilities that spread out moisture to allow for quicker drying. The liner material is also less prone to piling than a standard Nomex/Lenzing material.
Layers 2 & 3 are laminated together, reducing the bulk of multiple layers and increasing comfort.
The INNOTEX GRAYTM* Hood 25 has a TPP of 29.7 (NFPA requirement is a minimum TPP of 20).
The INNOTEX GRAYTM Hood 25 has a THL of 380 (NFPA requirement is a minimum THL of 325).
The particulate blocking layer blocks particulates 0.1 μm to 1.0 μm (microns) by greater than 98%. (NFPA requirement is a minimum of 90%)
