KING COBRA FIREFIGHTING HOODS: Keep a Cool Head Under Fire™
Carbon Shield is a flame resistant fabric breakthrough based on carbon fiber technology. The fabric simply won't burn in air. Tests show that Carbon Shield doesn't shrink, crack or decompose when exposed to direct heat or flame at temperatures exceeding 2300 degrees F (1300 degrees C) for over 90 seconds. In comparison, the leading flame resistant fabrics burn, begin to shrink while charring, then crack and decompose. This is all in about 5 seconds. Carbon Shield is manufactured through a proprietary cooking process where the yarns receive their initial carbonization. This process of carbonizing the fiber, by actually forging it in fire, is what sets Carbon Shield apart from all other flame resistant fabrics. There's no room for compromise when it comes to protection. Carbon Shield is the ultimate high-tech fabric for thermal protection and comfort.
Classic style hood is designed to provide double layer coverage of the neck, upper chest and to the top of the shoulder blades. Shoulders are contoured to reduce bunching of the bib. To ensure the hood stays tucked in, we've made the hood 3" longer in the front than NFPA requires. This hood features flat stitching and seamless chin area for better fit and comfort, 1/2" wide elastic face opening which stretches to a full 17" for easy donning and a snug fit around SCBA mask. Bottom edge is bound with self-fabric bias binding and all sewing is done with 100% Nomex thread.
