Warranty & Care Information

Our EasySeal protective hoods are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship at anytime during their useful life. Like all warranties, this warranty does not cover normal wear or unusual exposure(acid, rips on nails, etc.).

Useful or Service Life as defined by NFPA-1851 is 10 years from the date of manufacture. At this point, even if the garment is still in good shape and seemingly performing well, it should be retired and removed from service.


Proper use consistent with NFPA 1500, Standard on Fire Department Occupational Safety and Health Program and Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1910.132,General Requirements of Subpart I, Personal Protective Equipment.


Hoods must be cleaned and thoroughly dried prior to storage. Hoods may be stored with other gear but should be kept with clean gear. Plastic zip lock bags are preferred for long duration storage. Hoods should be kept out of sunlight.


All hoods, including those that have been contaminated chemically or biologically, should be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.


Do not use chlorine bleach or any detergent containing chlorine bleach. Do not dry clean.

Hoods are to be washed with regular detergent in warm water not higher than 130°F (50°C). Due to the low replacement cost of hoods, the warranty, and the nature of knit fabrics, hoods are difficult to repair; therefore it is not recommended that hoods be repaired. Any hood with a seam, fabric, or face opening failure should be returned to the manufacturer for inspection.

Do not remove or alter the hood label. Markings will be void if label is removed or altered.
