Engineered for protection [CANSEC2016D1]

25 May 2016

Founded in 1952, Hamilton, Ontario-based FELLFAB (Booth 736) is a leader in innovative engineered textile solutions.

The company provides its customers with a variety of engineered products made out of speciality textiles for the military, aerospace, aviation, rail and industrial markets.

FELLFAB will be displaying a variety of products, such as tactical vest and outerwear technologies, load carriage, a modular survival kit and the award-winning extreme cold sleep system (XCSS), which recently won an international design competition – the Red Dot Design Award. The lightweight XCSS comprises three sleeping bags – a synthetic bag, down bag and hygiene layer – which can be layered as a system or used individually to suit specific thermal protection requirements.

An internal cord management system allows tightening or loosening of hood, neck and draught collar easily from the inside, preventing heat loss. Quick egress is made possible by an ergonomically positioned linear zipper, with a low shear hook and loop fastener at the top. The sleeping bag (right) will be displayed and demonstrated during the show.

The company will also be promoting its defence and aerospace textile manufacturing capabilities, including everything from seat covers and cushions for light armoured vehicles, to thermal blankets for satellites utilising its contamination-free Class 100,000 cleanroom.
