Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.
Discomfort from windchill is eliminated by WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX LABS - they are totally windproof.
The enhanced breathability helps manage the body's microclimate, even during strenuous work.
Selected Softshell WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX LABS resist water and have a fast dry-out time.
GORE® Stretch technology can be integrated into key areas of WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX LABS, such as elbows, for ease of movement.
Wearers can work outside in colder conditions for longer when GORE® Insulation Technology is added to WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX LABS.
Versatile and hard-working WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX LABS are totally windproof, water resistant and highly breathable. This combination of protection and breathability minimises the wind’s chilling effect while reducing the risk of overheating, even when doing strenuous work: in other words, the totally windproof, yet extremely breathable WINDSTOPPER® membrane by GORE-TEX LABS blocks the wind but allows sweat vapour to escape.
Although textiles such as microfibers, closely woven fabrics and many fleece materials are often said to be windproof, even light winds can penetrate most of these fabrics, making wearers feel chilled and uncomfortable. By Gore’s standards, a fabric can only be considered truly windproof if its air permeability is 1.0 cfm (< 5 l/m2/s) or less. It’s a standard that every WINDSTOPPER® garment by GORE-TEX LABS easily meets.
WINDSTOPPER® garment by GORE-TEX LABS are suited for a wide range of designs, adaptable for specific needs and requirements - from 2-layer stand-alone jackets and trousers, or 3-layer liner constructions for slightly colder conditions.
Ideal for defence personnel, law enforcement officers, fire and safety personnel and other demanding professions working in changing conditions, WINDSTOPPER® garment by GORE-TEX LABS can also be combined with other technologies by GORE-TEX LABS for additional benefits: added abrasion resistance, added insulation, Stretch and next-to-skin comfort, for example.
For defence forces wearing WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX Labs, discomfort from windchill is no longer a concern.
Windbreakers and trousers made with WINDSTOPPER® fabric technology by GORE-TEX Labs enables officers to be comfortable working either indoors or outdoors.
WINDSTOPPER® fabric technology by GORE-TEX Labs offers maximum breathability, which help maintain the body's core temperature and maximise your performance.
In unpredictable weather conditions, WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX Labs are ideal for technical rescue teams.
WINDSTOPPER® garments by GORE-TEX Labs can be layered in a garment system for comfortable, all-day station wear.
By Gore’s standards, a fabric can only be considered truly windproof if its air permeability is 1.0 cfm (< 5 l/m2/s) or less. It’s a standard that every WINDSTOPPER® product by GORE-TEX LABS exceeds.
WINDSTOPPER® products with Stretch Technology by GORE-TEX LABS
Description: Optimum fit, wind protection and enhanced freedom of movement all in one garment. The technology reduces the need to wear many layers of clothing. GORE® Stretch Technology can be tailored to specific areas of the garment, on places like the elbows, knees or back. The wearer is able to move with less effort and will feel less pressure on the skin, resulting in perceptibly enhanced comfort when compared with non-elastic garments.
Added benefits: Non-restrictive clothing is ideal for a range of different scenarios, such as resisting arrest, driving, reaching for equipment, or kneeling on the ground. The stretch and high recovery from the FR Stretch panels adapts to the use of additional layers or protective equipment such as ballistics vests. Optimum fit enables officers to always look their best.
Ideal for: Ideal for use in jackets and trousers for law enforcement officers. Police forces can choose a specification for body armour to be worn either outside or underneath the garment, depending on the force’s policy.
