The Fire House Manikins demonstrate a good balance between temperature and abrasion resistance. They are predominately designed for BA snatch rescue training in fire houses and for 'hot fire cell' training.
The Fire House Manikins will easily withstand temperatures of around 160°C at floor level (400°C at the ceiling!) for many hours - they will of course deteriorate if placed to close to naked flames or in excessive temperatures, just as any fire kit would!

Who Uses Them?
Main carcass - Constructed in the same flame retardant Polyester (conforms to BS EN ISO 15025:2002) used in Police ballistic/stab vests.Main carcass - reinforced with with 38mm Nomex webbing – standard Polypropylene webbing will go brittle and melt at the high temperatures this manikin is designed to withstand.Protective coveralls are constructed using a Nomex blend material (conforms to EN11612) and offers good protection against high temperatures - it is permanently non-flammable and most commonly used in protective clothing to protect against heat and flames.Protective coveralls are also reinforced using Nomex webbing to improve the abrasion resistance and strength.Protective coveralls are fitted using 20mm Kevlar ties, as the standard Velcro fastening melt at these high temperatures.The ends of the coverall arms, which have been identified as a high wear area, are reinforced with 5mm leather to provide extra protection.
