Q: How do you keep the rental suits clean and smelling like new
and not some sweaty used athletic gear?
A: RSR is proud to use Molecule™ nomex cleaning products to protect and clean our rental gear. Molecule™ Protector creates a durable protective coating without affecting the suit’s fire rating. Molecule™ removes contaminant’s that can degrade fabric performance and contains an antimicrobial agent that inhibits the growth of bacterial odors. This will ensure you receive clean and fresh gear each rental. Our Bell helmets also feature removable liners so they can be cleaned to keep the “funky” smells out.
Q: What Do All The Safety Ratings Mean?
A: SFI Ratings are determined by the results of several tests conducted on racing suits for fire retardant capabilities and Thermal Protective Performance (TPP). The standard spec for racing suits is 3.2A, or 3.2A/1. Superior construction will yield ratings of 3.2A/3, and 3.2A/5. The increasing last digit indicates an increase in the length of time you will be protected by your firesuit before it succumbs to the flames.
What does this mean to you, the consumer? It means that you have a way to differentiate between quality-assured products and untested products. A driver suit that is certified to meet SFI spec has been laboratory tested and has passed the requirements of the tests. Those manufacturers who certify their products as SFI approved demonstrate their commitment to providing the highest levels of safety for their customers.
3.2A/1 gives 3 seconds until a second degree burn
3.2A/3 gives 7 seconds
3.2A/5 gives 10 seconds (All of our race gear meets or exceeds this rating).
3.2A/10 gives 19 seconds
3.2A/15 gives 30 seconds
3.2A/20 gives 40 seconds
It is important to understand that SFI Rating do NOT represent the number of fabric layers in the garment.
TPP ratings indicate the length of time the person wearing the garment can be exposed to a heat source before incurring a second degree or skin-blistering burn. The higher the value, the longer before you will incur a second degree burn. Divide the TPP Rating by 2 in order to measure the time until a second degree burn incurs:
All our rental suits feature a TPP Rating of 24 which gives 12 seconds of protection.
