Through extensive research and rigorous testing, we merge the science of protection and comfort to provide best-in-class constructions and technologies that give a broad range of professional end-users like firefighters, police and law enforcement officers, defence personnel, technical rescue and EMS teams and workers in professional and technical occupations the confidence and peace of mind they need while they carry out their challenging tasks.
Our advanced fabric technologies are designed to meet the requirements of professionals, their workplaces and unexpected changes on the job, especially where they are at risk of being exposed to adverse conditions or hazardous substances. No matter what conditions are experienced – extreme weather, heat and flame, exposure to body fluids, toxic chemicals or biological hazards – our meticulous manufacturing standards and commitment to 'Fitness for Use' ensure superior protection, consistent high quality and a long-life span. We stand by our promise to make sure professionals can focus on the job at hand, not on their gear.
End users in many Workwear applications require protection from hazards such as extreme weather, chemicals, flame exposure and other occupational hazards. Their PPE needs to be comfortable to wear.
Fire and Safety
Firefighters, first responders, technical rescue teams and paramedics require dependable safety and turnout gear they can rely on.
Law enforcement units need personal protective clothing that can comfortably protect them during sudden changes in weather or conditions of the call, including high-risk situations. High visibility and agility are also key features.
Defence forces count on military gear and footwear for the planned and the unpredictable - including extreme weather, flash fire, liquid chemicals or biological hazards. Tough, reliable gear is absolutely crucial.
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.
