Globe Manufacturing Company launched athletic-designed turnout gear to enable more flexibility and less bulk.
ATHLETIX, new material technology with stretch fabrics, provides a body-contoured fit for firefighters wearing turnout gear. ATHLETIX won the 2016 International Achievement Award of Excellence and Best in Category for Advanced Textiles by Industrial Fabrics Association International.
Attendees can feel the range of motion the new turnout gear boasts in a virtual reality experience at booth 2411.
Globe will make a donation to the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund for every attendee who tries on the new gear and virtual reality experience.
