Line Of Fire
Line Of Fire’s foundation is built on Micro Replication Technology. This unique, patented innovation is exclusive to Line of Fire. It has driven our company to our present position — the leading innovator in our specialized area of product design and manufacturing. Micro Replication Technology is the reason Line of Fire exists today. Line Of Fire’s driving force is its ability to identify emerging technologies and merge them into products that bring fresh insight to previously intractable problems that others have found impossible to solve. Line Of Fire will not be satisfied with today’s standards. We search the world for new ideas, capable fabrics, advanced manufacturing techniques, new components, and groundbreaking design philosophies.
Grip System Technology
With the introduction of the Line of Fire Grip System, Line of Fire has created a new way to think about gloves. We have set a new standard. It is gratifying to watch users change the way they think about protective gloves, items once thought to be unimprovable and purely utilitarian. Our designs circumvent the shortcomings of work gloves that users have cursed for decades.
The crucial part of a glove is the grip surface – the critical part of the glove that is responsible for keeping the user attached to the tool of his trade. Holding on is paramount. Your firearm, flashlight, baton, breaching tool, ladder, must remain firmly in your hands and in complete control at all times, under even the harshest of conditions.
Line of Fire has created a revolutionary Grip System consisting of two parts. (Part A), the glove, works in tandem with (Part B), a tool or item to which the patented Micro Replication-Surface is attached. When (Part A) and (Part B) join together, the user’s overall grip strength increases dramatically, building a stable hold as much as 280% greater than a leather glove on a bare surface. The system cannot thwarted by water, oil, sand, dust, blood, or other fluids.
The Line of Fire Glove (Part A) is flexible, strong, easily worn, attractive, and built to last. It is available in styles and colors suitable for the needs of users in countless applications and environments. Line of Fire will be introducing its first of many Grip System (Part B) products starting with a specialized rotational AR Grip known as the Flip Grip. This grip not only uses the patented Micro Replication-Surface, but it was also developed to rotate through 90 degrees to allow for an easier hand carry position.
Sensa Touch Technology
Line of Fire SENSA-TOUCH® gloves work seamlessly with iPhones, iPads, aircraft and vehicle touch screen monitors, and medical equipment. Unlike other manufacturers that press strands of metal into glove material for capacitance recognition, Line of Fire’s suppliers employ a unique patent-pending nanotechnology during the processing of the specialized leathers used in glove construction. This means no discomfort or tactile distortion from plastic dots added to the tips of gloves or reflective silver material sewn into fingertips. You don’t even know it’s there.
Line of Fire partners with a subcontractor to manufacture it’s domestic gloves. This partner has produced gloves for major contracts including the U.S. Marines and U.S. Army under Berry Amendment requirements.
The partner factories have the capacity to produce up to 4,000 cold weather gloves and 40,000 combat type gloves per month. Additionally, Line of Fire’s partner has the following resources in place to ensure it can effectively and efficiently manage any large scale, USA made requirement glove contracts:
• 150 Manned sewing machines
• 4 Automated sewing machines (Brother Brand)
• 11 Cutting machines
• 100,000 square feet of production floor space
• Distribution Warehouses they own on both the east and west coast
Line of Fire gloves are designed and manufactured to perform beyond expectation. To ensure this, LOF uses internal methods, professionals in the field and formal, credible testing agencies. Below are the results of tests on various Line of Fire products with more to come...
The Grip System
LINE OF FIRE produces a proprietary combination of gloves and materials designed to enhance grip in a unique way. Key to the system is TEGS™ micro replication technology. The TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED GRIP SYSTEM consists of a high-friction gripping material built into a glove (PART_A), and complementary material mated to a surface to be grasped (PART_B). Thousands of interlocking microscopic projections interlock to provide unparalleled gripping capabilities whether the surface is dry, wet, dusty, or covered in mud, sweat, or blood.
Note that the interlocked projections prevent sideways slippage but do not prevent vertical release.
Because TEGS™ protects against slippage but is non-adhering, users who need to be connected to their tools (weapons, magazines, ladders, hose nozzles, breaching tools, litters, vehicle surfaces) — while being able to release the tool rapidly — will find TEGS™ provides unmatched performance.
