Elliotts X-Series and E-Series Reinforced firefighting systems

Tuesday, 16 April, 2013 | Supplied by: Elliott Australia Pty Ltd

Elliotts has redesigned aspects of their X-Series and E-Series Reinforced firefighting systems to give a higher level of protection to the wearer while at the same time providing better mobility and putting less stress on the body of the wearer during any fire situation.

Any fire situation can put the firefighter’s body through many opposing factors including extreme heat, direct contact with flame, smoke inhalation, gas vapour environments, moisture from both internal and external sources, heat stress from physical exertion, touch point damage from environmental surfaces and localised weather conditions.

With the aim of minimising the friction on stress points in a firefighting situation, the design enhancements for the X-Series and E-Series reinforced firefighting systems include: reinforced contact areas with Arashield including padded shoulder harness braces to distribute weight evenly over the shoulders of SCBA equipment; shaped elbow reinforcing; reinforced abrasion-resistant sleeve cuffs with water-resistant FR neoprene sleeve wells and Nomex knit wristers with thumb loops; angled bellows pockets with Velcro closure; added AraShield pull tab to pocket flaps for easy opening when wearing gloves.

The trousers have been adjusted to include a contoured knee design to allow unrestricted movement, along with a gusseted crutch for extra mobility. The jacket has been shortened with an extended tail; underarm gussets allow free movement with minimal coat rise; and a two-piece shaped sleeve allows natural movement of the elbow.
