The Pennsylvania-based company designs, develops and manufactures highly specialized engineered woven fabrics.
The company’s safety webbing and tapes meet the demands of applications requiring high temperature, fully engineered safety solutions. They can be used for shoulder straps, harness webbing, and chin straps, as well as helmet suspension, binding tapes, lap belts, and shock absorbing webbing.
Made from nylon, Kevlar and other specialty fibres, the safety webbing and tapes are ideal for applications requiring high tenacity, abrasion resistance and flame and heat resistance. They are also a good choice for controlled elongation applications as well as those requiring chemical resistance in specific environments.
The safety webbing and tapes offer conductivity, dimensional stability and strength, and can help to reduce weight and size.
The materials meet United States (NFPA) requirements for firefighters’ protective clothing and equipment.

SensPro gloves are protective gloves for firefighters with implemented electronics and sensors that measure ambient temperature of close surrounding of the firefighter and temperature of remote objects.
The glove has special 3D anatomical cut, which significantly improves on dexterity and comfort of the user. The whole system, including battery, is the first textile product certified to explosive atmospheres. With the gloves comes an app, which shows measured temperatures and allows its users to set their bar graph to their needs.
The award will be received by representatives of the company at the Red Dot Gala award ceremony on July 9, 2018, in Essen, Germany.

Product revenue during the first quarter was $1,465, an increase of 83 per cent compared to $802 in the comparable quarter of the prior fiscal year. This increase was driven by shipments of Blackline’s G7c and G7x products in the period, particularly in Europe with an increase of 245 per cent in total revenues in this region.
Service revenue was $2,338, an increase of 36 per cent compared to $1,714 in the same period last year, attributed to new service activations by end customers from the continued solid growth in product sales and adoption of the Blackline Complete leasing program.
Contracted future service revenue, representing the value of future Blackline Complete lease commitments, was $4,510 as at January 31, 2018, an increase of 34 per cent from Q1 FY2017.
Gross margin for the first quarter was $1,693 compared to $1,251 in the comparable quarter of the prior year, an increase of 35 per cent over the comparable period from the prior year.

The NFPA 1977-compliant boot is the company's second-generation hiking boot for wildland firefighting. This boot is a major overhaul of HAIX's popular Missoula. Incorporating feedback from firefighters on the frontlines, the company's engineers upgraded the boot to better meet the needs of wearers.
The new boot is lighter weight to alleviate leg fatigue, especially on longer hikes. The boot also incorporates HAIX's renowned Arch Support System for improved comfort. A new lightweight composite toe provides additional toe room and non-heat transferring safety protection as well as built-in puncture protection.
Missoula 2.0's newly-designed rubber sole is highly heat-resistant and anti-slip to provide greater footholds for a variety of rugged terrains. The built-in PU cushioning in the sole provides exceptional shock absorption.
For added convenience, the boot features a boot jack at the rear to make them easier to remove, and roller ball eyelets to make lacing smoother and faster.

Since 2007, the temperatures of the typical diesel truck emissions, including fire trucks, have risen. The addition of hazard-reducing exhaust treatment systems such as diesel particulate filters (DPF) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) have increased the heat generated by the engine, and thereby the exhaust, raising concerns about fire, injury and product damage.
NFPA specified in its 1901 Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus (18.104.22.168.7) that engine exhaust gas temperature shall not exceed 455 C (851 F) when measured at the exit of the exhaust pipe during normal DPF regeneration.
Plymovent provides a HT hose assembly for its upper, mid and lower hoses. The HT hose is rated at 482 C (900 F) continuous and 566 C (1,050 F) intermittently.
In 2015 the Plymovent hoses were sent to a third-party testing company and withstood temperatures up to 1,221 F during a 40-minute test. Included in the test was the more rigid lower hose component, and because that is the hose that takes on the highest temperatures, this was a significant achievement.
