Safety Components creates new thermal liners

Safety Components, a manufacturer of firefighting fabric technology, has created a new line of thermal liners that are engineered with DuPont heat and flame-resistant fiber to help firefighters handle hotter fires. Called Glide Ice, the liners are designed to feel cool with a weave that combines 60 per cent DuPont Nomex filament yarns with 40 per cent DuPont Nomex/Lenzing FR spun yarns. The liners allow for breathability, freedom of movement, comfort, heat-blocking capability, moisture management and fast dry times. Glide Ice thermal liners are fully UL approved, and will be available beginning in late 2016. Learn more at
