TenCate Protective Fabrics and PBI® Announce European Launch of PBI® Peak5® Firefighting Outer Shell

TenCate Protective Fabrics and PBI® have announced the European launch of PBI® Peak5®, a revolutionary new outer shell for firefighting gear. This innovative product is the result of a strategic partnership between PBI®, a leading producer of flame-resistant (FR) fiber, and TenCate Protective Fabrics, a premier manufacturer of FR textiles for fire service garments.

PBI® Peak5® offers firefighters unprecedented levels of durability and thermal protection while remaining remarkably lightweight. The fabric incorporates TenCate Protective Fabrics’ patented Enforce® technology, which blends multiple fibers into high-strength yarn structures. This results in a fabric that is both exceptionally strong and lightweight.

"Our goal is to design products that meet the specific needs of end-users, particularly the challenges faced by firefighters," said Michael Laton, VP of Global Strategy and Innovation at TenCate Protective Fabrics. "PBI® Peak5® stands out because it provides lighter-weight, more durable, thermal protection thanks to an advanced blend of PBI® fibers and Enforce® yarns."

As the lightest outer shell ever engineered by TenCate Protective Fabrics, PBI® Peak5® boasts an extremely high percentage of PBI® fibers, ensuring superior thermal stability. The launch of this new outer shell marks a significant milestone in the TenCate Protective Fabrics – PBI® partnership, particularly in European markets.

“PBI® Peak5® was designed specifically for fire brigades seeking an ultra-lightweight outer shell that still offers unmatched flame-resistance under extreme conditions that PBI is known for,” said Helmut Zepf, Managing Director PPE Division of PBI.

PBI® Peak5® outer shell fabric meets global safety standards, including certifications for EN, ISO, ASNZ, and NFPA. It is now available in markets throughout Europe, including Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the UK. For more information, visit tencatefabrics.com.
