RedZone - the only ul Verified particulate blocking firefighter turnout gear

LION is taking action to increase the protection of firefighters by testing its RedZone turnout gear with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to the NFPA 1971, Optional Standard for Liquid and Particulate Protective Ensemble. UL Verification is an objective, science-based assessment that confirms the accuracy of marketing claims. The independent assessment process scrutinizes the validity of specific advertising or promotional statements, giving individuals a way to separate verified fact from fiction. As verified by UL, RedZone is now the only particulate blocking firefighter turnout gear proven to have no ingress at the turnout coat, pant, glove, boot interfaces and closure points, giving firefighters another layer of protection against hazardous particulates contained in smoke and soot. Additionally, RedZone performs consistently with existing turnout standards for heat stress management and mobility, requires no change in the donning/doffing process, and is certified to meet NFPA 1971; 2018 ed. Developed in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and the North Carolina State University Textile Protection and Comfort Center (TPACC) as part of the Dayton, Ohio-based PPE company’s overall contaminant control effort, LION RedZone is specifically designed to reduce exposure of potentially dangerousparticulatesintogarmentswornbyfirefighters.
