Protection isn’t complete until it lives right next to your skin. TenCate TECH T4 is a base layer fabric that provides inherent FR protection in a non-contributory fabric that will not ignite, melt or drip. It is far superior to normal cotton tee shirts. Normal cotton is not only flammable, it has very poor moisture management characteristics. It absorbs moisture but doesn’t give it anywhere to go; it just makes the shirt heavier and more uncomfortable.

TenCate TECH T4 also provides COOLDERM™ Technology. The fabric absorbs moisture and spreads it over a wide area to ensure faster evaporation. This keeps the moisture away from the skin and provides an evaporative cooling effect. This is an important attribute that firefighters need in any fire ground environment. Keeping cool on the job means more comfort and better attention to detail when it matters most.

Super lightweight at 4.8 osy (160 gsm), TECH T4 wears like an athletic tee shirt with the added bonus of inherent FR protection and moisture management. It’s a fabric that looks good, wears well and will give the user the comfort and protection they need beneath their stationwear and bunker gear.

Moisture can weigh fabrics down and make them uncomfortable. TenCate COOLDERM™ Technology provides quick absorption and quicker drying times. By dispersing the moisture across the fabric, it dries faster providing evaporative cooling in warm climates and body temperature regulation in cooler climates.

Wearers want PPE that feels just like everyday apparel. Lighter weight means more comfort that will keep you protected on the job longer. TenCate delivers fabrics that are so comfortable, you’ll forget it’s FR.

TenCate engineers fabrics that are meant to be worn in the world. Breathability is important to comfort and TenCate makes sure that comfort is built in.
