How It Works
As vapor escapes your turnout gear, moisture can collect between the layers of your turnout. In fire ground conditions this moisture can turn to heated vapor.
When the gear is compressed and heated, the trapped moisture can transfer heat toward the body.
LION Ventilated Trim is perforated to provide a conduit for the release of vapor and guard against the potential hazards of trapped moisture.
These perforations eliminate the need for additional thermal enhancements to meet the Stored Energy Test, since they allow for the release of heat in the system when compressed.
