Why a Particulate Hood?
As we learn more about the potentially harmful contaminants found at the fireground, the need for protection against those particulate hazards continues to grow. Wearing a particulate hood will give you the additional protection you need.
Why the GORE® Particulate Hood?
Protection. The GORE® Particulate Hood provides excellent particulate blocking throughout the entire hood — not just in selected areas. In addition, this hood exceeds current NFPA 1971 requirements for thermal protection.
Comfort. The unique design of the GORE® Particulate Hood delivers a more comfortable, natural feel like you get when you wear a traditional hood.
Durability. As with all products from Gore, this long-lasting hood is exceptionally durable, retaining its level of particulate-blocking performance for at least 100 wash cycles. The GORE® Particulate Hood combines the expertise of the industry leader in barrier technology with the skill of one of the most respected hood manufacturers, Majestic Fire Apparel.
