Bristol Uniforms

Bristol Uniforms, a global leader in the design and manufacture of protective clothing for emergency services, is set to reveal the full range of PPE selected for the ground-breaking Collaborative Procurement Framework at this year’s Emergency Services Show.

The new Framework, led by Kent FRS, is accessible to all Local Authority Fire and Rescue Services (FRSs) across the UK, providing access to high quality PPE and saving FRSs considerable time and resources by simplifying and streamlining the procurement process.

Bristol Uniforms will be unveiling the new designs and selected garments, including its cutting-edge next generation XFlex kit, Layered Jackets, Rescue Jacket and USAR ensemble – all of which combine innovative and ergonomic designs with the use of high-performance fabrics and fibres, to offer maximum comfort, manoeuvrability and protection.

Also on its stand this year will be a broad range of PPE solutions designed to meet specific needs, such as Air Ambulance coveralls, Ambulance apparel for Hazardous Area Response Teams (HART), Public Order Crowd Control (POCC) PPE, a range of high visibility and wet weather clothing, and its specialist Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) range.
