Our Products

Harnessing the skills of traditional textile processing, we’ve developed a unique portfolio of products for vehicle exhausts, passive fire protection, personal protection and thermal insulation.

Our Automotive Division manufactures acoustic and thermal insulation products for exhaust systems for cars, buses, trucks and for industry. As well as our Katpak, Thermolastic® and Knitted Products, we also produce bespoke sleeves, insulation jackets and heat shields.


Our Textiles Division manufacturers Dualtec® and Powerguard®, yarns that provide some of the highest cut and thermal protection possible for personnel protective apparel.  Importantly for PPE wearers, we’ve set new standards in comfort.

FireHalt® is our Fire Protection Division, designing and manufacturing cavity fire barriers, which are now a market leader. Visit firehalt.com for information.
