In accordance with the requirements of N.F.P.A. 1971,
garments shall have fluorescent and retroflective trim
permanently attached to the outshell of the garment to
meet visibility requirements. Bristol offers a variety of
N.F.P.A. 1971 approved trim patterns and trim materials
to ensure high safety levels for fire department personnel
operating in low visibility environments. The fluorescent
trim enhances daytime visibility while retroflective trim
enhances nighttime visibility.
Bristol’s approved trim materials also meet the
performance requirements laid down by N.F.P.A.
1971 for Flame Resistance, heat and thermal shrinkage.
These requirements mean that the trim materials
attached to the outershell of the garment shall not
melt, drip or ignite.
Bristol garments are available
with heat seal department
patches and/or name patches
to your specifications.
