S-GARD is the leading supplier of modern, high-quality protective clothing for firefighters in the German-speaking countries. We develop robust and durable firefighting clothing so that firefighters are optimally protected and can deliver the best possible performance during their operations. Our range includes a wide spectrum of turnout gear, technical rescue, work at height, wildland and stationwear clothing. Equipment you can rely on.
Our high-quality firefighting clothing is always state of the art. Just meeting the standard is not good enough for us. As the work of fire brigades is constantly evolving, we too are constantly working on product innovations to meet these requirements and always remain at the cutting edge of technology.
Leading supplier of state-of-the-art PPC in German-speaking countries
More than 60 employees at the Heinsberg site control the entire product development, material purchasing, production and quality control. Our services include the care, cleaning and repair of your protective firefighting clothing. In addition, we offer state-of-the-art training and further education opportunities for fire brigades with our SAFETYTOUR.
Continuous research and development
We work closely with experienced firefighting professionals, textile and garment experts and leading manufacturers such as GORE, DuPont, PBI and 3M to further develop our products. Our experts are also involved in standardisation committees and research projects – for example with the Fraunhofer Institute – for the further development of general protection and quality standards. We have already been awarded the ‘Innovative through Research’ seal several times for our research activities.
Most of our protective firefighter jackets and trousers are equipped with a GORE membrane system that is permanently waterproof and reduces heat stress. Breathable, high-quality materials also increase wearer comfort and extend the life of the equipment.
Technical innovation for the best possible protection
As one of the first manufacturers in Europe, S-GARD has been producing firefighter protective clothing with the innovative Gore Parallon material since 2015. With its double membrane, the material is considered the most effective special fabric for firefighter protective clothing on the market. We have recently been granted a new patent on our special Gore Parallon Hybrid system.
We manufacture most of our tactical jackets and trousers using high-quality fibres from DuPont. The material offers reliable protection against heat and flames. DuPont Nomex fibres expand in high heat, creating an even better protective barrier. DuPont Nomex fabric is also highly breathable, helping to keep core body temperature constant even in high heat.
PBI high-performance products
PBI high-performance fibre is extremely resistant to flame and heat. It only begins to decompose at temperatures above 700°C and is a very poor conductor of heat. This makes it ideal for use in firefighters’ protective clothing. We offer two product series in which PBI is used as the outer fabric for firefighting clothing: DYNAMATE and ULTIMATE.
S-GARD is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation and attaches great importance to social and environmental aspects in both its production facilities and its suppliers, including safe and healthy working conditions at our production sites.
