The Flame Shield FX1 is the world's first and only auto-detecting, auto-deploying head and face flash fire and steam protection system. It is worn over existing FR workwear like a light pair of shoulder pads and is secured to the wearer with adjustable straps. The Flame Shield FX1 has four sensors that will detect a high heat signature indicating a flash fire or steam discharge and automatically deploy the shield in .375 seconds to protect the wearer from devasting facial burns. In the standard ASTM F1930 flash fire test, normally used to test FR garments, the test mannequin always registers 100% third degree burns to its head and face. When the test mannequin was outfitted with the Flame Shield FX1, it detected the flame and deployed the shield and the mannequin registered 0% third degree burns to its head and face.
There is no longer any excuse not to protect yourself or your employees from the risk of a devastating injury, the Flame Shield FX1 is ready to launch!
