When the Queensland Police Public Safety and Response approached Legear Australia and New Zealand to see if Legear could source Nomex BDUs and Legear contacted all of its suppliers and searched for a manufacturer.
After a lot of emails, phone calls and time Legear was unsuccessful in finding a manufacturer.
But all was not lost. Legear decided to source fine material, designers and seamstresses and it supplied a sample. Queensland Police Public Safety and Response liked the sample.
Legear then manufactured the uniform and now the Queensland Police Public Safety and Response Team are wearing the Legear branded Nomex 3A Fire Retardant BDU.
In essential performance areas such as flame resistance, thermal protection, comfort and durability, NOMEX plays a major role. Its thermal technology resists the hazards associated with electric arcs and flash fires including intense heat and flame.
NOMEX offers not only thermal protection, but it is light weight too. NOMEX core can increase strength by 37 times while increasing weight by only 6%.
