18 Jan Structural Firefighting Fabrics Offering Certified To Standard 100 By OEKO-TEX®
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, wearers can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article, therefore, is harmless for human health.
TenCate Protective Fabrics remains committed to protecting and empowering all end-users in every aspect of life. That’s why we are proud to announce that our product’s family for the Fire Service market is now certified by OEKO-TEX® to the STANDARD 100, for both outer shells and thermal liner fabrics.
In addition, TenCate Protective Fabrics’ revolutionary Tecasafe® Plus, available in both woven and knit fabrics, is OEKO-TEX® certified. Tecasafe® Plus is one of TenCate Protective Fabrics’ best-performing fabrics for flame-resistant stationwear and serves thousands of wearers in the Fire Service.
Since November 2019, TenCate Protective Fabrics has been using products and manufacturing processes that ensure these fabrics meet the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
OEKO-TEX® has been making its mission to test textiles for harmful substances in order to offer consumers reliable assistance in the purchase of textile materials of all types. OEKO-TEX® evaluates and tests products from both private and public companies against a wide collection of the world’s most rigorous safety standards. Textiles that meet those standards are given a special status for customer confidence and high product safety.
