Firefighter™ Heat-Dissipation Protection

Next Image

Dock seal fires occur frequently

  • Heat from trailer lights rise rapidly when compressed into foam, possibly reaching 900º F in 20-30 minutes

Firefighter provides effective heat-dissipation protection

  • Layered foil technology disperses heat, maintaining a safe temperature
  • Does not burn from trailer marker lights like fire retardant foam and fabric can
  • Strongly advised on all foam dock seal head pads
  • Advised on head curtains

Fire retardant foam and fabric cannot prevent burning

  • Chemicals added to create fire retardance can cause fabric to wear faster, diminishing the life of the seal
  • Firefighter products covered with ultra-durable Durathon™ fabric have dramatically superior wear characteristics
