All EXO2 and ExoGlo heated clothing and heated motorcycle clothing is heated by a technology called FabRoc®. We've spent over 30 years perfecting this technology, and we manufacture FabRoc® in the UK to maintain quality standards.
How does it work?
FabRoc® is a lightweight polymer that produces FIR (far infrared) heat energy when a low voltage is passed through it. This is what keeps you warm when wearing our products.
FabRoc® can be powered by either rechargeable batteries, a mains power adaptor, or from the accessory socket of a car or motorcycle.
You can choose the level of heat supplied with the controls on our lightweight battery packs, and the product will warm throughout the FabRoc® panels, with no hot spots.
What are the additional benefits of FabRoc®?
FabRoc® not only helps keep you warm, but has many added therapeutic health benefits.
FabRoc® produces FIR (far infrared) energy which heats your muscles well as your skin.
The FIR (far infrared) energy produced by FabRoc® has been shown to have a wide range of health benefits. Some of the proven benefits include:
- Increased blood flow
- Provides effective pain relief
- Accelerates healing in soft tissue injury
- Decreases joint stiffness
- Increases extensibility of collagen tissue
- Increased range of motion
- Reduces risk of injury and allows greater extension than otherwise achieved
- Reduces inflammation and oedema
- Reduces muscle spasm
- Enhances white cell function
- Increases immune response
- Increases elimination of foreign pathogens and cellular waste products
- Improves lymph circulation
- Increases rate of removal of accumulated toxins
Many of these benefits can also translate into a competitive advantage for sports people and animals.
How has this been tested?
FabRoc® has undergone extensive independent testing to identify its FIR range. The results of this testing show that where 1 is ideal and 0 represents zero emissions, the emission rates for FabRoc® within the key FIR wavelength band of 4 to 18 microns average between 0.862 and 0.875, which is in the highly effective range. This means that FabRoc® emits waves within the range that provides the most therapeutic benefit.
Is it safe?
Yes, completely! FabRoc® is intrinsically safe through being chemically inert. FabRoc® has an inbuilt safety cut-off and is self-regulating which means it cannot overheat or produce hotspots and therefore will not burn. It exhibits a positive temperature coefficient (PTC) which means there is no need for thermostats or fuses.
