Available in a choice of two cuff lengths, the AM23 (35cms) and the AM24 (45cms) reflect radiant heat while the carbon inner lining helps reduce heat conduction.
The Para-aramid palms offer excellent abrasion resistance.

Providing full body coverage including the head, hands and feet, the Proximity garments provide excellent protection from radiant heat and high temperatures. Due to the high ambient temperatures that the wearer can be subjected to, it is recommended that the Ignis Proximity suits are worn with a breathing apparatus to provide breathing air at normal temperatures. The Proximity garments, certifed to EN ISO 11612, are used for aircraft rescue, aircraft firefighting and proximity of high temperatures (but not entry into direct flame).
IGNIS Fabric is specifically designed for the manufacture of garments used in close proximity to high intensity fires. Extremely lightweight at 330g, and pliable, the IGNIS outer shell fabric is a metallised aluminium coated meta-para aramid fabric that is constructed from 95% Meta-aramid and blended with 5% Para-aramid.
The mirror-like surface reflects radiant heat away, allowing close flame proximity while reducing the rate of heat absorption that can lead to thermal fatigue. The integration of additional inner carbon felt linings ensure superior protection and performance in the extreme work environments faced by civilians, emergency service and military personnel. These garments are worn in industries such as aircraft rescue, aircraft firefighting, bulk flammable liquids and similar situations involving high levels of radiant heat.
