PBI Performance Products


PBI fabrics are the first line of defence on the fire ground. They are renowned for their unique combination of flame resistance, durability and comfort, which is why they are first choice in protection for the most extreme conditions, from NASA’s astronauts, to emergency responders, the military and Formula One drivers.

The company was founded more than 30 years ago and continues to be a global force in personal protection in USA, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australasia. Word continues to spread to new markets such as China, India and South America that are now keen to protect their firefighters with PBI.

PBI offers a wide range of fabrics that meet the needs of every situation and work effectively as an integral part of the protective garment. Each fabric has different properties and applications, but every PBI fabric provides the required protection from heat and flame that an outer fabric must deliver.

Whatever the garment design, it must incorporate a fabric that will deliver effective protection against heat and flame. If the outer fabric fails then potentially so does the whole garment.

All PBI outer fabrics including PBI Gold, PBI Matrix, PBI Max, Titan 1260 and Ibena X55 are lightweight and strong and achieve high flame resistance. They deliver excellent tensile strength and will not become brittle, shrink or break open when exposed to flame and high temperatures. This means that the integrity of the internal layers of the garment is protected and the transfer of any radiant heat is slower, allowing more time for firefighters to escape to safety in a situation such as a flashover.

PBI’s ‘next to skin’ fabrics also include PBI TGP, which delivers excellent protection against heat, flash fire and arc flash.




Airwave delivers mission critical voice and data communications to organisations that provide vital public services – the police, fire and ambulance services, local authorities, health, utilities and transport providers.

Airwave has invested £1.4 billion to date to create the Airwave Network, which was purpose built to meet the needs of emergency services. The Network is totally secure, covers 99% of Great Britain’s landmass and is interoperable, meaning that for the first time members of different public service organisations can communicate with one another.

The Airwave Network is the first public service network in the world to offer secure, seamlessly integrated communications between emergency services and other emergency responders, and has made Great Britain a world leader in critical communication.
