The FireHouse-GEN2 Manikins demonstrate a good balance between temperature and abrasion resistance. The Fire House manikin is perfect for fire and general training
The manikin Main carcass - Constructed in the same flame retardant Polyester (conforms to BS EN ISO 15025:2002) used in Police ballistic/stab vests and reinforced with 38mm Nomex webbing as opposed to the polypropylene webbing found on the general purpose range standard Polypropylene webbing will go brittle and melt at the high temperatures this manikin is designed to withstand.
The coveralls are constructed using a Nomex blend material which offers good protection against high temperatures - it is permanently non-flammable and most commonly used in protective clothing to protect against heat and flames. The protective coveralls are also reinforced using Nomex webbing to improve the abrasion resistance and strength the overalls are fitted using 20mm Kevlar ties, as the standard Velcro fastening melt at these high temperatures.
The ends of the arms, which have been identified as a high stress area, are reinforced with 5mm leather to provide extra protection. The Fire House Manikins are designed to withstand temperatures of 280-320 degrees F (140-160 degrees C), the average temperature at floor height for hot fire cell training and only starts to fail at temperatures in excess of 350F (180C). We recommend donning an old set of turnout gear for use in which students will drag the manikin. This will add an extra-layer of wear protection for your investment.
