Safety Systems Announces Launch of driFIRE(TM), a New Line of Performance Wear
Revolutionary Line of Engineered Hybrid Performance Wear Provides Optimal Combination of Flame Resistance, Moisture Management and Comfort
CHICAGO, Oct. 10 / - Safety Systems today announced the availability of driFIRE(TM), a revolutionary line of performance wear engineered to provide the optimal combination of flame resistance, moisture management and comfort.
driFIRE(TM) is an engineered hybrid line of performance garments that utilizes the patented Dri-release® blend (US Patent # 5,888,914) by Optimer Performance Fibers. Safety Systems partnered with Optimer, a leading research and development company in the textile industry, to create an exclusive flame resistant variant of the Dri-release® technical performance yarn.
"We wanted to create a line of garments that combined flame resistance and moisture management while remaining very comfortable," stated Todd Wilson, CEO of Safety Systems Corporation, who added, "With our partner Optimer, we have developed an engineered hybrid performance garment that combines flame resistance and moisture management into the micro-blend of fibers using Optimer's patented Dri-release® technology."
driFIRE(TM) provides natural flame resistance performance with no melt or drip characteristics. Unlike other performance garments, driFIRE(TM) uses the proven, superior moisture management performance of Dri-release® to provide the optimum balance of moisture-wicking and fast-drying performance. driFIRE(TM) combines a soft feel with the environmentally friendly odor neutralizing properties of FreshGuard® for superior comfort and confidence. Independent test results confirm that, unlike other topically treated garments, driFIRE(TM) performance is permanently engineered into the fabric and will not deteriorate incrementally with each wash and wear.
driFIRE(TM) will be marketed by Safety Systems into the military, law enforcement, fire service, and industrial markets and will be sold directly as well as through its channel partners.
