Your job requires a deep commitment to protecting people and property, so we are committed to protecting you through continuous testing, research, and innovation. The GORE® Particulate Hood GEN2 delivers the improved comfort you asked for without compromising the certified protection you need, so you can answer each call with comfort and confidence.
Why a Particulate Hood? As we continue to learn more about the harmful contaminants on the fireground, the need for protection against those particulate hazards has become even more crucial. Wearing a particulate hood as part of your turnout gear delivers the additional protection you need while on scene. Why the GORE® Particulate Hood? Improved Comfort The level of comfort you get from the GORE® Particulate Hood GEN2 has been improved for a more natural feel without compromising protection. Its level of breathability helps reduce heat stress, enabling you to wear the hood longer at the fireground. Protection While exceeding the thermal protection requirements of the NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition, the GORE® Particulate Hood GEN2 also exceeds the Standard’s particulate-blocking requirements with a protective barrier that blocks more than 99.99 percent of potentially harmful particulates*. This hood delivers reliable protection throughout the entire hood — even blocking smoke at critical seams more effectively than other particulate hoods currently available. At the same time, its construction is optimized to reduce interference with sounds and signals on the fireground. Reliability This exceptionally reliable GEN2 hood retains its level of more than 99.99 percent particulate-blocking performance* even after laundering. Its unique inspection opening enables you to inspect the entire hood visually, inside and out. Prevention The GEN2 hood has contrasting colors — white or black on the outside and blue on the inside, helping you to prevent cross-contamination. The GORE® Particulate Hood GEN2 combines the expertise of the industry leader in comfort and barrier technology with the skill of one of the most respected hood manufacturers, Majestic Fire Apparel.
