    Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.


    GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric technology offers lighter weight solutions compared to traditional flame retardant fabrics.

    The revolutionary fabric technology is engineered to form a stable char when exposed to heat and flame.

    The versatile technology offers the durable waterproofness of GORE-TEX fabrics plus heat and flame protection.

    The fabric is designed to allow sweat vapour to be released: ideal for outdoor use, even during high-exertion work.

    Revolutionary lightweight heat and flame protection

    Garments made with GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric offer burn protection when exposed to heat and flame, while delivering durable weather protection. This unique fabric technology brings a high level of protection to working professionals in challenging and hostile environments.

    Before GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric technology was developed, it was difficult to combine lightweight durable weather protection with adequate heat and flame protection. Garments made with GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric now meet this challenge - benefiting defence personnel and police special forces amongst many others.

    When defence personnel and industrial workers are exposed to flash-fire incidents, with GORE-TEX PYRAD® products they can count on best-in-class protection, all while offering protection in challenging weather conditions. The garments are low-bulk and easy to pack, for those on the move.

    GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments are comfortable to wear and offer plenty of freedom of movement even in the midst of an emergency, these garments allow wearers to focus fully on their important work. 

    The fabric retains the high levels of durability that Gore protective fabrics are renowned for standing up to the everyday pressures of tough working conditions. Also made in high-visibility colours, the garments are ideal for working at night or in low-visibility.
