Introducing the award-winning
ROOTS Hepta® Inherent 270

Hepta® Inherent 270 is exclusively developed for ROOTS with a singular purpose: to enable professionals to do their most demanding work without compromise. 

7 fibres. 7 norms.

Designed to push the limits for demanding flame retardant and arc flash protective garments. It includes 7 different fibres and certifies to 7 different safety standards. Hence, Hepta®, Greek for 7, serves its name purpose. When exposed to excessive heat and flames, the fabric creates a ‘blister’—similar to the human skin. Except that this blister is created on the inside of the fabric forming a protective shield. Hepta® provides outstanding welding performance, it is certified as a Class 2 protective fabric. That’s truly remarkable for an inherent flame retardant fabric at 270 g/m2. The fabric also features exceptional tear, tensile and abrasion strength. It scored a whopping 25.000 T on the Martindale test.

 

  

Hepta® and the Environment

We design our products to be safe and long-lasting. When products are used longer, fewer resources are extracted from the earth, reduces your ecological footprint and positively impact your cost of ownership too. Hence, we pushed the Hepta® 270 fabric to be certified for 100 wash cycles. That’s unparalleled.

  • 102-litre water saved (per kgs)
  • 1,466.7 KG CO2-emissions reduced (per kgs)
  • 95% of chemicals fewer used (per kgs)

It goes without saying that we take incredible responsibility for our products throughout their life cycles. We focus on safety and our impact on the environment. The Hepta® 270 fabric is produced under the OEKO-TEX® STeP label. Which means the entire production from fibre to weaving/knitting is executed sustainably. We are proud to report that Hepta® is produced colourants-free, FR-finishing-free saves 102 litres of water (per kgs) compared to cotton treated, and uses 346,8 litres of chemicals (per kgs) less than cotton treated.

Number don't lie. Check the scoreboard.
