NXP 750 Proximity Suit

Insulated proximity suit for standby operations & flashover

The NXP 750 Proximity Suit has been replaced by the X50 Short Duration Fire Entry Suit. We recommend the X50 for better fit, simplified donning, superior protection, and a faster lead time. The NXP 750 suit will no longer be available after December 2016.

The 750 Proximity Suit is insulated to protect personnel working in close proximity to extreme temperatures or fire. It is intended for emergency standby operations and other scenarios where personnel are exposed to brief but extreme radiant temperatures. The suit has an aluminized outer shell and an aluminized vapor barrier to protect against high pressure steam, vapor, chemicals, and radiant temperatures up to 3000°F (1650°C). The NXP 750 Insulated Proximity Suit provides superior protection from possible flashover scenarios and can be used safely for short-duration fire entry emergencies.

Temperature Ratings:

  • Ambient heat rating to 800°F (430°C)
  • Total flame rating to 2000°F (1095°C)
  • Short duration radiant heat up to 3000°F (1650°C)

*Ambient heat is the equilibrium temperature in an area. Radiant heat is given off by a heat source in proximity. Duration varies depending on the amount of conductive heat transferred during the operation.


  • The Z-Flex Aluminized outer shell reflects 95% of radiant heat
  • An aluminized vapor barrier protects against steam, vapor, and chemicals
  • Layers of 1-inch thick fiberglass insulation provide protection from ambient heat
  • Complete set includes hood, coat, pants, boots, mitts, and a duffle bag for transportation and storage.
