The K1 single layer SFI race jacket is a fire jacket for individuals who are seeking extra protection in the event of an accident, but who might not compete professionally or may only compete on a semi-regular basis. If this describes you, then you owe it to yourself to try the K1 SFI racing jacket! K1 Triumph SFI-1 Pants: The K1 Triumph Pants meet the SFI 3.2A/1 certification , are constructed to the highest quality standards, and are competitively priced. The safest suit for maximum fire protection is a loose fitting one. A suit's fire protection capability is directly related to the fit of the garment.
A properly fitted racing suit will have small air gaps in between the body and the garment. A suit worn too tightly will compress these air gaps- allowing heat to reach the skin faster. An additional consideration should be the position the garment will be worn in. Specifically, the clamshell orientation of the driving position requires additional material in order to prevent tugging the wearer.
This is especially important when wearing a one piece suit. A racing suit that fits well while standing may not fit comfortably when seated and harnessed into a racing seat.It is important to account for this when selecting a suit: ensure you are the lower end of the range for a particular size to ensure that there will be enough material to prevent the suit from tugging when seated. Features of Proban Cotton: Our SFI racing fire pants is made from Proban cotton, which is a fantastic alternative to Nomex. Developed in the 1950s, Proban (PROBAN) is a fire retardant chemical that can be applied to cotton and other cellulosic fabrics. In the event of exposure to fire, Proban cotton decomposes as it burns, forcing fire damage into a localized charred section that serves as a barrier. Proban has no afterglow, does not smolder and does not allow the spread of fire outside of the immediately affected area, greatly reducing the risk of injury.
Another benefit of Proban is that it does not affect the physical properties of the fabric that it is applied to, as there is no chemical reaction between the two elements. Proban fabrics are common as protective materials in industrial, military, civilian and racing applications, and have developed a proven reputation as a dependable fire retardant material. There may be an initial odor caused by this coating, but allowing the material to "air out" will alleviate this over time.
