An innovative combination of GORE TEX with a WINDSTOPPER membrane

In the middle of January, the LHD Group Hong Kong Ltd., a subsidiary of the LHD Group, won the award of a further tender for the Hong Kong Fire Services Department. The order encompasses the supply of a total of 1,780 First Responder (FR) soft shell jackets for the Hong Kong Fire Service.
The FR soft shell jacket consists of an innovative combination of GORE TEX® with a WINDSTOPPER™ membrane and is equipped with 3M reflective strips. The membrane is laminated between a sturdy, high quality outer material and a warming, quick drying polyester fleece. It consists of a very thin protective layer which is combined with a lightweight textile protective layer. As a result, the textile part is absolutely windproof. Nevertheless, sweat in the form of water vapor can escape unhindered as the WINDSTOPPER™ membrane consists of a microscopically porous PTFE polymer (polytetrafluorethylene). Through this so-called wind chill effect the wearer is protected in an optimum manner from body heat loss. The material is pleasant to the touch, dries rapidly and is breathable. The body remains capable of performance for a longer period as less energy is required for maintaining the micro climate. All of the materials comply with Öko Tex Standard 100.
Within the scope of the TotalCare® contract with the Hong Kong Fire Service, the LHD is responsible for the supply, cleaning and maintenance of more than 13,000 sets of protective clothing for firemen for the ca. 6,500 members of the fire service together with the corresponding logistics.
