In a wide variety of industrial conditions, your crew is put to the test. Day in, day out.
They are challenged to perform 120% on the job, on deadlines and in all kinds of weather.
Procedures and safety need to be on top of mind. Always.

The last thing they need, is to be distracted by considerations like:
“What if this catches fire?”
“Why am I sweating this much?”
“I’ve been out all day and I ‘m soaking wet,…my jacket weighs a ton”

SAMURAI GORE® PYRAD® products take away all of these concerns at the highest level possible.

They are a breakthrough in self-extinguishing fabric technology that adds unparalleled heat, flame, and arc protection properties to other flame retardant textiles such as modacryl-cotton or FR Polyester.

GORE® PYRAD® fabric can leverage properties of waterproofness, breathability, low water pick-up, fast dry-out  and textile produced in Hi-Vis colors, that have traditionally been difficult to achieve with conventional FR textiles.

As an early adopter, we have been activating this technology in the Western European market, mostly in the Benelux chemical industry complexes and ports (Antwerp and Rotterdam) since 2012.

Unparalleled, unmatched, uncompromised … .

Samurai Safety Warrior saw the light of day in 2003, with the support of Vandeputte Safety as business angel and still resides for a 100% under its wings.
