Airfire for firefighters

Published:  19 September, 2016

Honeywell introduces a range of safety footwear for rescue operations.

Airfire’s full-grain premium leather provides resistance to flame, fluid, oil and abrasion while the use of innovative materials in the lining ensures breathability and freedom of movement.

Airfire has been designed with a technical insole that has been designed to provide maximum shock absorption and comfort. The footwear’s tough, protective toe-shield, anti-puncture steel plate insole and non-metallic toecap provide added protection as well as lightness and thermal insulation.

The footwear also has a lightweight outsole that has been developed specifically for Airfire. Made of injected polyurethane and nitrile rubber, the outsole features multi-directional cleats for excellent grip, particularly on ladders. Resistant to temperatures of up to 300oC and offering slip protection against oil, hydrocarbons, fat and chemicals, the innovative outsole offers enhanced stability and heel shock absorption.

The Aifire range includes the ‘fast fitting’ Firepro and ‘extreme protection’ Firestormboots. These feature a waterproof and breathable Sympatex moisture tech membrane lining that provides water resistance and moisture management. The ‘multi-purpose’ Firefast and Firetrail boots have a Poromax lining, which has special Eucalyptus treatment to enhance moisture management. Firetrail includes a soft-toe resistant to the force of 500 Newtons, which makes it ideal for general rescue operations on particularly steep terrain.
