Electric vehicles and AFV’s - firefighter protection
We understand the unique safety requirements for electrical vehicles and AFV's, and can provide you with equipment and expertise needed to ensure the appropriate fire protection. Our SOLAS Fire Suits are EN469:2020 certified, meeting the latest standards for thermal performance, water penetration resistance, and breathability/water vapor resistance.
The EMSA recommends fire suits with level 2 water penetration resistance for firefighting in connection with electrical vehicles and AFV's. These suits contain moisture barriers that provide protection against water penetration- The VIKING YouSafe™ Spark (PS8410/PS8460) SOLAS fire suit is ideal for this purpose.

Upgrade your fire suits to meet the new EN469:2020 standard. VIKING offers a range of SOLAS-approved fire suits that comply with the latest regulations for thermal performance, water penetration resistance, and breathability. Some models even come with a moisture barrier for added protection. While the EMSA recommends level 2 water penetration resistance for AFV's, it's not mandatory. Nevertheless, VIKING's EN469:2020-approved suits, with or without a moisture barrier, are ideal for marine and offshore use.
