MAKO Fire Fighting Flash Hood PBI



Our MAKO PBI Flash Hood is very popular in Australia and the same hood is currently in use by many leading fire agencies throughout the country. Fully Certified to NFPA 1971-2007 Edition the MAKO PBI is also UL Certified.

The MAKO PBI Fire Fighting Flash Hood is only available in Light Brown and is a very light weight composite blend of 20% PBI and 80% Lenzing FR.

Lenzing is a special fibre that offers unique thermal insulation properties and is a natural fiber derived from wood. It offers protection from all kinds of heat and its functional properties help to prevent heat stress and heat stroke.

The FR stands for Flame Resistant.

The notched shoulder and longer length allows for a proper fit and added protection across the chest.

The longer length (3 inches longer than NFPA requires) assures that this hood will stay tucked inside other required equipment.

STYLE: 2 ply, two piece design with notched shoulders.

LENGTH: From top of head to bottom: 21 inches

SIZING: One size fits all. Do not modify, change, or alter your protective hood in any manner.

CONSTRUCTION SEAMS: All seams are merrowed, and then top and bottom covered with a 5-thread cover stitch for extended durability.

All bottom edges are bound with binding.
