AirBoss of America boot
Protective equipment maker AirBoss-Defense, a division of AirBoss of America Corp has just been awarded UL certification for the world's first NFPA compliant rubber firefighter boot that also provides CBRN protection.

This revolutionary firefighter boot is the first NFPA 1971 compliant firefighter footwear to offer full protection against CBRN threats.

Other features of this innovative footwear include extreme lightweight, reflective surfaces and a new Last (foot) design to assure optimum fit and comfort.

AirBoss-Defense produces the only firefighter boots in the world to meet both fire requirements and offer true CBRN resistance, thereby providing the real protection first responders need for today's threats.

AirBoss-Defense is a North American manufacturer of personal protective equipment, and has recently signed two major contracts with the US Department of Defense Joint Services procurement initiative to provide the US military forces with CBRN protective hand wear and footwear.

AirBoss has also been a long time private label manufacturer of rubber firefighter footwear for 3 of the top 4 brands in the US.

Earl Laurie, President of AirBoss-Defense has stated: "They are very pleased to receive UL Certification to NFPA 1971 on this unique CBRN fire product.

They have integrated their world leading CBRN technologies into this new Fire boot, thereby bringing the same level of protection to fire fighters andfirst responders as they provide to defense forces."

AirBoss of America Corp develops, manufactures, and sells high quality, proprietary rubber-based products offering enhanced performance and productivity to transportation, military and industrial markets.

With a capacity to supply over 200 million pounds of rubber annually to a diverse group of rubber manufacturers, AirBoss is also one of North America's largest custom rubber compounding companies.
