BEHIND THE SEAMS:
HOW WE ALTERED FR FOREVER
SCROLL
THE FUTURE OF FR IS HERE
THE BULWARK
iQ SERIES
It's time to break FR apparel from
its bulky, sweaty, scratchy, shackled past.
It's time to usher in a brave new era of
assurance. It's time for the world's
first ever line of truly intelligent FR.
Mass shouldn't have to equal protection.
Stretch shouldn't have to be such a stretch.
FR shouldn't be worn simply because
the job demands it. From greater comfort comes
greater compliance - and greater productivity.
42 years invested. 100 PhDs involved.
Entirely new chemistries invented.
All in an effort to redefine how total
confidence moves, breathes, looks,
feels and performs.
BECAUSE
WEARABILITY
HAS NEVER BEEN
FACTORED IN.
BECAUSE
TOTAL CONFIDENCE
SHOULD BRING
TOTAL COMFORT
BECAUSE
THE JOB YOU DO
IS HEAVY ENOUGH
ALREADY

(VIEW VIDEO AND SLIDE SHOWS)
SIX PROPERTIES OF INT
TWO SIDES OF
Lightweight
Lessening the weight of the fabric without compromising protection.
Breathability
The amount of air than can transfer through a garment.
Moisture Management
The fabric's ability to wick moisture off the body and allow it to evaporate.
ELLIGENT PROTECTION.
THE STORY
Softness
Feels good to the touch, feels good on the body.
Mobility
How much the construction of the garment allows the wearer to move within the garment.
Durability
FR protection over the life of the garment.
X
BREATHABILITY
An ingenious combination of yarn and open construction creates pathways that allow for maximum airflow through the garment. Plus, revolutionary Dual Elemental Protection guards the fabric (Milliken® Amplitude G2™), without blocking air passages within the fabric's construction.
X
LIGHTWEIGHT
Specially engineered fiber and yarns make for high loft, low-density fabric construction. Less-dense construction moves mass away from your body, creating a lighter layer against the skin. And an entirely new chemistry (Dual Elemental Protection) breaks through the "mass=protection" barrier.
X
MOBILITY
Milliken® Amplitude G2™ fabric has an especially low coefficient of friction, meaning it slides across itself — and other fabrics — with greater ease. Allowing both the garment, and the wearer, to move more freely.
X
MOISTURE MANAGEMENT
An innovative combination of all-new chemistry and proven performance-wear fabric construction allows for perspiration to be drawn away from your body to the surface of the garment faster. Moisture can evaporate quicker, keeping you comfortably cool.
X
SOFTNESS
Milliken® Amplitude G2™ fabric's super-soft, yet protective fibers provide more flex, more drape, more compressibility and more comfort. Even our FR technology was applied with efforts to lessen chemical build up and rigidity.
X
DURABILITY
Advanced chemistry pushes the envelope on durability by penetrating to the fiber within the core of the fabric. Also, hundreds of durability testing protocols are performed on every Milliken® Amplitude G2™ fabric. Helping us tweak the chemistry, and even predict percentage of body burn.
X
BREATHABILITY
The iQ Series™ employs comfortably cool technology and design techniques that translate into an FR garment that's more breathable than anything comparable on the market. With greater comfort, comes greater compliance.
X
LIGHTWEIGHT
iQ Series™ garments are lighter than any other comparable FR garments available today. Yet they don't compromise protection.
X
MOBILITY
Comfort knits and under arm gussets allow for better range of motion forward and overhead. Stretch panels in the arms and back allow you to reach in to fix things in small places. Purposely placed seams mean less rigidity.
X
MOISTURE MANAGEMENT
The iQ Series™ provides a revolutionary level of sweat wicking, stay-dry moisture protection. Protective gear, for the first time ever, functions as performance wear.
X
SOFTNESS
iQ's feel-good fiber technology means less scratch. Less stiffness. And greater overall wearer comfort.
X
DURABILITY
Because the iQ Series™ provides advanced FR protection over the life of the garment, FR durability is not compromised.
