Gas Extraction System
Silver Needle Inc. currently has the only NFPA 2112 SEI Certified complete Gas Extraction System (GES) in the industry that features our patented Internal Extraction Harness and optional Kevlar retrieval lanyard. Our DuPont Nomex quilted GES greatly exceeds the current NFPA 2112 standard. Silver Needle has been testing different fabrics for over 15 years to find the best fabric combinations for comfort and the greatest results. Repeated controlled laboratory testing of 10 seconds with our latest quilted fabric had a predicted burn injury of 0% third-degree burn and a 4% second-degree burn. The garment also meets the ASTM F1506-20a minimum performance requirement with an ATPV of 60 cal/cm².
Silver Needle’s GES is not only safe but comfortable. Our newest design offers superior freedom of movement while wicking away moisture and drying up to 25% faster than other thermal liners.
