4 Thermal Barrier

BRISTOL LITE, is a non-woven 100% Nomex® high-loft felt, quilt stitched to a 50% Nomex®/50% Viscose facecloth. This unique fabric is extremely heat absorbent and was developed exclusively for Bristol. Inspite of being significantly lighter than most thermal barriers used in the U.S. today, it, in combination with Bristol's recommended outer shells and moisture barriers, gives thermal protection(measurable via the T.P.P. - Thermal Protective Performance) which easily exceeds the thermal protection required to comply with the requirements of the 2000 Edition of the N.F.P.A. 1971.
