Abstract:

The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility NCTRF has established the feasibility of using commercial insulated firefighters boots and reflective spats to protect feet of crash-crew firefighters performing rescue operations in critical fire areas. Tests suggest that boot insulation and reflective covering on boots should enable feet to withstand high radiant heat for several minutes.
