Remploy Frontline Gains NFPA Class 2-Approval for Its CR1 Ensemble


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Remploy Frontline
: 03 August, 2008  (Application Story)
Global chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) manufacturer Remploy Frontline has announced that the prestigious Safety Equipment Institute (SEI) in the US confirmed that Remploy’s Frontliner / Civil Responder 1 (CR1) Ensemble passed the SEI’s stringent certification testing for the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 1994-2007 (Class 2) Standard on Protective Ensembles for First Responders to CBRNE Terrorism Incidents.
The NFPA standards are recognised worldwide as the gold standard for safety and the integrity of fire and emergency personal protection equipment (PPE). This major development reinforces Remploy Frontline’s commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest possible standards worldwide, and creating its CBRNE offering in ISO-approved production facilities located throughout the UK.

Remploy’s Frontliner / CR1 Ensemble is the ideal solution for all emergency services working within a highly contaminated CBRNe environment. It provides a high level of fire retardency, and ruggedness, in a breathable garment system that is easily donned and comfortable to wear. The Frontliner / CR1’s non-encapsulating, ant-static three-layer ensemble consists of the inner Cooler layer, intermediate Britannia layer, and the outer Peeler layer.

This certified ensemble also consists of specially chosen CBRNE protective components that include: gloves, boots, SCBA / mask, all as part of the integrated system. These items are all readily available from Remploy Frontline as part of its unique one-stop, fully integrated offering that is designed to easily provide its customers with a leading edge solution to CBRNE protection.



According to John Armstrong, Global Business Manager: “The SEI’s recent NFPA approval demonstrates three things: first, Remploy continues to develop PPE solutions that exceed customer expectations in the fire and emergency services. Second, Remploy’s PPE is virtually future proof because we listen to our customers and can correctly anticipate their needs, which is reflected in our products. Third, Remploy’s PPE is integral to the overall end user safety and efficiency in the field.



“Remploy’s solutions are continually being tried and tested, proving that its lightweight permeable ensemble enhances manoeuvrability and reduces body burden, while extending the length of time the washable / launderable product can remain in use.”



This approval allows Remploy Frontline to use the coveted SEI Certification Mark in the marketing, packaging and promoting of the approved Frontliner CBRNE Ensemble – in accordance with the provisions of the SEI Certification Programme Manual. This helps to reinforce Remploy’s new branding initiative: “Remploy – Survival Evolution.”
