Fire-Resistant Cooling Vests

Fire-Resistant Cooling Vests

Polar's Fire-Resistant Cooling Vests are Class 1 NFPA 70E rated.

What is the different between Banoxand Nomex? 

  • Banox is flame retardant treated cotton. The treatment is good for 20-25 washings and then the resistance to fire is significantly diminished. This fabric is heavier than Nomex and is more durable than Nomex. 
  • Nomex is a fabric that is treated by a single step flame retarding process that will last the life of the garment and does not reduce the wear life of the fabric. The Nomex is roughly 60% of the weight of the Banox and is a bit less durable fabric. 
Please note: while these fabrics are class 1 NFPA 70E rated, there is exposure to potential arc flash and the user should not depend on a cooling vest for protection.

The insulated pockets inside the vest are compatible with your choice of cooling packs:

  • Kool Max® Frozen Water-Based Cooling Packs require access to a freezer and offer the highest level of cooling energy for up to 3 to 4 hours. It's science! It takes more energy to charge these packs in a freezer and in return, the packs offer greater cooling energy for a longer time. 
  • Cool 58® Phase Change Cooling Packs fully charge (freeze) at 58ºF (14.4°C) and provide a comfortable, constant cooling temperature of 58ºF for up to 2 to 3 hours. Ideal choice when freezers are not available; these packs can be activated in 15 to 20 minutes in a container of ice water!
  • You have the option to add an extra set of cooling packs with your vest. You may want to order both types of packs for flexibility on-the-go!
