When you’re a first responder, working in inclement weather is inevitable – but getting wet isn’t. Blauer has led the way in developing waterproof public safety apparel that will stand up to rain, snow, sleet and other precipitation. Our fabric technologies work to keep liquids out while allowing perspiration and other moisture to escape, leaving you high and dry in the best way. Read on to learn more about how we make jackets, pants, footwear and accessories ready to take on the skies.
B.DRY Emergency Response Apparel
Our own research and development team created B.DRY® fabrics and construction that are used in many of our waterproof uniforms. This technology features a special fabric laminate coating that can be applied to the outer shell or inner lining of apparel without affecting comfort. We use this one-way laminate on polyester, nylon and even fleece to seal out water without trapping sweat inside. This system is windproof and breathable as well! We also use special seam tape on all B.DRY products and pay special care to areas such as zippers and cuff closures that are known for letting liquids in.
Use Gore-Tex for Maximum Waterproofing
The military has used Gore-Tex® fabric for nearly 50 years, and Blauer is now proud to use it as well in select jackets and pants. This material uses expanded polytetrafluoroethylene for the inner fabric membrane which is then bonded to a strong outer laminate. This blocks liquid water while allowing water vapor to pass through. A Durable Water Repellent treatment on the outer layer ensures that the fabric remains breathable.
Block Out Water on Duty
Blauer has a huge selection of waterproof responder jackets and outerwear pants for those who brave the elements. All of our public safety rainwear utilizes either B.DRY or Gore-Tex, and we have bomber jackets, responder parkas and cruiser jackets. We carry waterproof hats and waterproof gloves to protect your head and hands. Many of our duty boots have waterproof membranes as well for when you step in puddles or snowbanks.
