Details

Anchor Industries' New Generation Fire Shelter meets all U.S. Forest Service specifications and has been proven to save lives.

Make sure your crew has maximum protection with an Anchor New Generation Wildland Fire Shelter. The improved design of the New Generation Fire Shelter provides added protection from direct flame while reflecting radiant heat and trapping breathable air. Rounded ends help scatter radiant heat. The outer layer is made of aluminum foil and woven silica cloth that work together to reflect approximately 95% of radiant heat that does strike the shelter directly, while slowing its passage to the inside. The shelter’s inner layer of fiberglass is laminated to aluminum foil to help prevent heat from being re-radiated to the person inside the shelter.

  • As of 2010, New Generation Fire Shelters have been mandatory equipment for ALL Wildland Firefighters
  • New-Generation Fire Shelter design provides increased protection from radiant and convective heat
  • Anchor Shelters are proven for dependability and quality construction
  • Available in two sizes to fit virtually all fire fighters
  • Made in U.S.A.

"is there a temperature rating on the material? how easy is it to puncture the material?"

This starts to break down over 500 degrees, as far as the material it has to meet a USFS spec's and we don't have that.

"Does this come with the case and all that or is it just the shelter itself?"

"Is there a number of years that the shelters are certified for? Or is simply as long as they remain in good shape and unused?"

As long as they have not been opened and or seal has been broken, you can not open and reclose, per mfg. unlimited shelf life, if still sealed.
