FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: CAN THE ULTRA SHROUD UNI-V2 PROTECT ME FROM SUPER HEATED AIR?
A: No, only a positive pressure breathing apparatus can do this! Use of an Ultra Shroud does not afford the user complete protection against burns to the face, neck or respiratory tract. The risk of burns to the face and neck areas are dramatically reduced both due to the design of the Ultra Shroud and the materials used in its construction.
Q: HOW DOES THE HOT SHIELD ULTRA SHROUD EXTREME PROTECT ME?
A: The outer shell of the Ultra Shroud Extreme is made of super tough & extreme fire resistant CarbonX fabric. This material is inherently non-flammable and will not burn, ignite, char, shrink or decompose even at extremely high temperatures. CarbonX accomplishes this with less weight than traditional PPE materials. CarbonX was initially developed by a race car driver after he suffered severe burns and is used extensively in that industry in racing suits & gloves. Hot Shield USA has been using CarbonX exclusively since November 2001.
Q: IS THE ULTRA SHROUD UNI-V2 COMPATIBLE WITH ALL TYPES OF WILDLAND HELMETS?
A: The Ultra Shroud is designed to fit nearly any wildland helmet made by use of the special fasteners included with each package.
Q: IS THE ULTRA SHROUD UNI-V2 COMPATIBLE WITH GOGGLES OR PRESCRIPTION GLASSES?
A: Yes. That is one of its advantages.
Q: HAS THE ULTRA SHROUD BEEN INDEPENDENTLY TESTED?
A: No, not the Ultra Shroud itself as an ensemble. However, the CarbonX fabrics used far exceed minimum performance requirements found in NFPA Standard #1977-2022 Wildland Protective Clothing and Equipment. CarbonX fabrics far exceed all performance requirements including Radiant Protective Performance (RPP), Flame Resistance and Heat & Thermal Shrinkage Resistance. CarbonX test data can be found on the website www.Carbonx.com
Q: WHAT LIMITATIONS OR EXCEPTIONS ARE THERE?
A: Although the Ultra Shroud is made with highly thermal resistant materials, it is not fire proof nor do we guarantee risk of burns are eliminated. Proper use will help prevent burns but not all types of burns, such as superheated air. We highly recommend the use of an additional face mask, like the model HS-2 for more complete protection. We also recommend all personnel use a carbon monoxide detector and rotation of personnel in the hazard environment to lessen the risks. No negative pressure type device or garment available to date, has been found to protect sufficiently against this hazard.
