Action Factory PBI Hood
PBI (Polybenzimidazole) is a well known fabric used extensively in military, aerospace and fire fighting applications. This synthetic fiber has a very high melting point and does not readily ignite. The PBI fabric combined with the Action Factory unique garment design makes it a perfect light weight, thin, "shell" layer for the stunt performer.
Our double layer fire hoods are made from the same quality material as our long underwear and are also stitched with an over-lock pattern. The hoods are open in the eye area and have a longer bib to minimize collar and neck separation, allowing performer a greater "safe" range of movement.
The Action Factory PBI Hood is designed to only be used in conjunction with AF HydroGel when performing fire stunts.
