Fire & Rescue
BRUCK Safety & Protective flame retardant fabric business unit is proud of our Emergency Services personnel. Our contribution to those who put their own lives at risk for the protection of others is to continue the advance of protective fabric solutions through innovation and investment. In every product category we service, comfort, safety and protection are foremost along with an overarching dedication to a reliable supply-chain partnership.
BRUCK engineered solutions for Structural Firefighting are much more than just fabrics – they’re systems. The overall performance of your turnout gear is the sum each individual layer. For this reason, we are continually evolving fabrics whose high-performance properties can be synergised from the inner most lining, through the thermal and moisture barriers, to the outer shell.
Tough, durable and dependable systems are extremely important, as is how your gear feels against the skin and moves with your body. BRUCK fabrics are developed to last and feel good to wear. Our systems minimise weight and maximise breathability, thereby minimising metabolic heat stress, while you remain protected from flame, radiation, liquid and chemical splash. BRUCK products are proven tough to withstand the challenges of Structural Firefighting.
BRUCK partners with the global leaders in inherent flame retardant fibre technology and high quality yarn producers to bring you the MELBA FORTRESS®, MELBA ENFORCER® and BRUCK OLYMPUS™ collection of outer shells and the MELBA INSUL-TEX® range of thermal liners and scrims.
BRUCK has a proud history of protecting Firefighters and is dedicated to providing the widest range of high performance fabrics that exceed the requirements of AS/NZS 4824:2006 for Wildland Firefighting. Our products see action in diverse terrains and temperatures so our extensive range of high performance fabrics reflects this diversity. As Australasias only licensed PROBAN® fabric producer we bring a range of 100% Cotton and Cotton rich blend fabrics, backed up with the assurance of flame retardant performance gained from decades of real world testing. As DuPont’s appointed weaver of NOMEX products in Australia we are also proud to provide you with the MELBA series of FORTRESS®, SHIELD®, COMFORT ADVANTAGE® and SENTINEL® fabrics that ensure Wildland Firefighters can access lighter, tougher and more comfortable fabrics to meet the continually evolving needs for safety and protection.
The BRUCK range of MELBA SENTINEL® fabric sets the standard for comfort and performance in single layer protective fabrics. But don’t just take our word on it, ask the majority of firefighting authorities in Australia who chose MELBA SENTINEL® garments for their flame retardant station wear.
The protection and comfort achieved by MELBA SENTINEL® fabric is due to the use of NOMEX Comfort fine fibres blended with the softness, comfort and absorbency of Lenzing FR viscose. This unique blend of fibres delivers fabrics which are inherently and permanently flame retardant, and anti-static and have exceptional moisture wicking properties that make MELBA SENTINEL® ideal for next-to-skin garments.
Experience the MELBA SENTINEL® advantage yourself, feel the comfort next to skin, the lightness and tremendous breathability and have the peace of mind that MELBA SENTINEL® fabric meets all requirements of AS/NZS 4824 and AS/NZS 4824:2006
