Science of Comfort
For decades, we have studied the factors that affect your comfort — factors that include your body’s performance, your environment, and your clothes, boots, gloves, and hat. This knowledge is the foundation for developing protective fabrics that are also comfortable in the most challenging environments.
Science of Protection
First and foremost, technical fabrics must provide protection, not only against the environmental conditions you encounter but also against heat stress that can compromise your performance.
Our range of innovative technologies have been engineered to meet the highest level of protection, comfort and reliability in Personal Protective Equipment, based on rigorous hazard testing for the industries we work with.
Our reputation is built on our commitment to deliver products that are fit for their intended end use, or "Fitness for Use": this means that products equipped with these high-value fabrics have to measure up to the specific requirements of the wearer. Or, in other words, they have to perform as promised.
In order to achieve this, Gore analyses the interaction between the wearer, their environment and their protective gear, taking into account:
- the physical activity of the wearer and duration
- heat balance/ perspiration
- material specifications and the design of the garment
- environmental factors and hazards
This allows us to align our ultimate goal of providing reliable protection and maximum comfort, with the performance features of the products.
We make a commitment to each and every customer and wearer that our products will "do what we say they will do" - and we stand behind that promise.
