GORE-TEX SURROUND® Tactical Footwear for police forces
The first GORE-TEX police duty footwear with 360° breathability
The new SURROUND® product technology allows for first-of-a-kind GORE-TEX police uniform footwear that is breathable all-around, also through the sole. This innovation ensures a new class of breathability for duty footwear, achieved without having to sacrifice durable waterproofness or compliance with ISO 20347:2012 for occupational footwear.
At our stand, you can expect to see the latest styles of our footwear partners. Stop by to learn more about how we used the valuable experience we gained while establishing this GORE-TEX footwear technology in the mountain sports and casual sectors to pave the way for GORE-TEX police duty footwear with 360° breathability.
Stretch GORE-TEX and GORE WINDSTOPPER® outerwear
Optimum garment fit and complete freedom of movement
Most police officers know the problem – as soon as you wear an extra layer of clothing under your outer garment, for additional warmth or for added protection, it's too tight. Or, when no such layers are worn underneath it, it's too loose. The latest innovation from W. L. Gore & Associates features unique elastic GORE-TEX and GORE WINDSTOPPER® fabrics which significantly enhance garment fit, making a noticeable difference to the wear comfort of police officers. This technology has been extensively tried and tested within a flexible fit GORE-TEX garment by a German police special operations unit in a range of conditions and over a longer period of time.
Feedback was extremely positive, one user remarked,
The jacket feels like I'm wearing a second skin.
Come and visit us at our stand where we will be displaying these stunning new garments.
GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology
Flame resistant, compact and light
Depending on where they are deployed, members of the armed forces may face the risk of coming into contact with fire. Flame resistant combat clothing can protect wearers in flash fire incidents. The new jackets and trousers equipped with GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology have proved highly successful both in the field and under laboratory conditions. They are already being worn by the members of various special forces. These uniforms have proven to be particularly resistant when compared with other fire resistant uniforms of a similar weight. GORE-TEX rain suits with GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology are exceptionally light, keep rain out and provide adequate heat and flame protection.
Visitors to IWA can discover a selected range of uniforms and clothing concepts at our stand.
