The Ruth Lee flame retardant training dummy demonstrates a good balance between temperature and abrasion resistance.
The dummy carcass is constructed using heavy duty canvas, reinforced with 38 mm nomex webbing as opposed to the polypropylene webbing found on the general purpose range - standard polypropylene webbing will go brittle and melt at the high temperatures this dummy is designed to withstand. The protective overalls are constructed using a nomex blend material which offers good protection against high temperatures. It is permanently non-flammable and most commonly used in protective clothing to protect against heat and flames. The protective overalls are also reinforced using nomex webbing to improve the abrasion resistance and strength. The overalls are fitted using 20 mm kevlar ties, as the standard velcro fastening melt at these high temperatures. The ends of the arms, which have been identified as a high stress area, are reinforced with 5 mm leather to provide extra protection.
The Ruth Lee flame retardant training dummies are designed to withstand temperatures of 140–160 °C.
