MANUFACTURE OF OUR SKÖLD GARMENTS
For our garments we use components such as zippers, buttons, reflective tape, snaps and thread that do not increase the risk of burns.
Our components are 100% flame retardant so that in contact with fire or heat they do not melt, drip or separate on exposure.
Our metal zippers and snaps are not exposed or in contact with the skin to avoid risks, and they must also be free of sharp points.
All the components we use have certifications for use in flame retardant clothing, so our commitment is to create 100% safe garments.
