Structural firefighters encounter the flash fire and high temperature the most during their rescue activities. How to provide the best possible fire retardant protection against heat and flames have become the main testing goals for suitable fire retardant clothing. Main rescue core is humanity.

The Bureau of Fire Protection of the Philippines had very specific requirements for their fire suits. Initially these were for small quantities only so our prior suppliers would not custom make fire suits for such limited quantities. So in 2005 we found Taiwan K.K. Corporation and they said they could meet the requirements even for small quantities.
The Bureau of Fire Protection has been happy with the new custom Kanox fire suits that we have been delivering to them since 2006 and their fire fighters like the lighter weight of the Kanox suits against the heavier NFPA suits that they used in the past. Meanwhile the quantity of suits purchased by the Bureau of Fire Protection has increased so by 2010, they have purchased in excess of 3,000 sets of Kanox Fire Fighters Suits

In Vietnam, firemen are used to wear one-layer or two-layer fire fighting clothing produced domestically. When carry out fire fighting operations, the protection is obviously short comparing to certificated turnout gears.
In 2009, KANOX® Fire Fighting Suit was introduced to Vietnamese fire brigades by Vemax Trading Co., Ltd. KANOX® Fire Fighting Suit comprises four layers fabrics, said outer shell, moisture barrier, thermal barrier, and inner lining. Complying to EN469:2005 and certified by CE Mark, KANOX® Fire Fighting Suit is equipped with excellent heat resistance, high tear/tensile strength, and medical protection to against blood-borne pathogen.
In the first procurement, Vietnamese fire brigades sampled 3 sets KANOX® Fire Fighting Suits for their simple in-house test. A fireman donning KANOX® Fire Fighting Suits and PPE from head to toes stood in front of a fire torch at a distance of 3 meters. The fire torch was ignited by gasoline and the temperature was 842°C. After 2 minutes they stopped the test when the fireman felt a little bit hot and the clothing smoked. They measured temperatures of clothing surface (161°C) and clothing inside (43°C), and satisfied with the result. Most important, KANOX® Fire Fighting Suit was intact to protect the fireman unharmed.
Even though EN469 fire fighting suits are recommended to the market, at least 95% Vietnamese firemen still wear non-certificated fire fighting clothing. Thus, we make it our obligation to phase in more qualified and budgeted fire fighting suits which not only cater to Vietnamese fire fighting market but also raise protection level of fire fighting operations.
