BUNKER GEAR MAINTENANCE

Reasons why you should be keeping up with your

routine gear cleaning & advance inspections

Safety

  • Reduce risk of injury  

  • Remove cancer causing carcinogens, Bio-hazards & cross contamination

  • Invisible damage like moisture barrier leaks, internal thermal liner wear & tear would be undetectable unless proper testing and inspection was conducted

Save money

  • Maximizing the service time of your bunker gear's  (10 year)

  •  Repairing small damage points before they worsen over time and are more costly to repair

  • Manufacturers offer different warranties for they products, by getting your gear inspected yearly you can make sure to catch problems and get them repaired within that timeline.

Keep record

  • NFPA 1851 requires ISP's to keep record of all... (we go above those minimum requirements.)
