GUARDIANTEX is a special high-tech fabric for personal protective equipment. Thanks to numerous functional properties, material combinations, coatings and colours, GUARDIANTEX meets the exacting requirements of a wide range of different occupations. One important area where it is used, for example, is protective equipment for military and police forces on operational duty. However, GUARDIANTEX is also used in many other areas where people must wear personal protective equipment in order to be able to perform their jobs.
Depending on the requirements GUARDIANTEX must meet, we use different yarns to meet them in the optimum way. We rely on manufacturers that value quality and functionality as much as we do. We use 6.6 Cordura® polyamide, polyester, bioactive polyester, polyamide, viscose, cotton and carbon. These materials are also processed in various combinations in order to meet the property specifications. GUARDIANTEX therefore offers perfect protection and is also comfortable to wear.
On military operations, optimum camouflage is one of the most important requirements. Blending in with the surroundings and preferably not being seen by others are decisive factors. With GUARDIANTEX, we have developed a fabric that perfectly meets these requirements. We are happy to produce it in the design our customer needs.
Different material combinations add specific properties to the fabric. From general requirements like fire retardancy and water repellent properties to specific features for certain operations such as protection against infrared visibility and vectors: GUARDIANTEX offers the perfect finishes for

Getzner develops and manufactures fabrics for personal protective and general equipment for the international military sector.
Different material combinations add specific properties to GUARDIANTEX – from general characteristics to application-specific requirements
GUARDIANTEX aims to achieve maximum protection whilst also ensuring maximum comfort for the wearer through the use of materials that meet the respective requirements. The functions we have developed are of vital importance to the military, special forces and the police when it comes to personal safety.
Different substances are used to give the right side of the fabric a flame retardant finish. This is achieved either by means of a dip coating or a padding process.
Synthetic rubbers are elastic polymers that are used to manufacture synthetic versions of natural rubber. Such a coating offers good flame retardancy and high abrasion resistance.
Finishing that offers protection against all types of vectors (disease-transmitting insects) and is based on the substance permethrin. It has the same effect as a neurotoxin on vectors and prevents bites.
An FC finish makes the fabric hydrophobic, and therefore water, dirt and oil repellent.
Adding IR particles to the dye influences the reflection spectrum in such a way that the dyed fabric is virtually or completely undetectable with night vision cameras. Certain colours may need an additional pigment print.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) absorbs very little water and is resistant to acids, lyes, alcohol, oil and petrol. It extinguishes quickly, unless it is exposed to an additional external flame source. Unlike other technical plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene, for example, the high chlorine content of PVC makes it highly inflammable.
The fabric is covered with a very thin layer of silicone. This is important for parachutes in order to reduce the friction caused by opening the parachute in
Adding silver ions has an antimicrobial effect, inhibits the growth of bacteria, is skin-friendly, prevents odour development and thereby improves the hygiene of textiles.
A polyurethane-based coating with integrated flame retardant substances reduces the tendency to burn.
Polyurethane is used for watertight compact coatings and for microporous and poreless coatings. PU-coated polyamide and polyester fabrics are waterproof, windproof, abrasion and cold resistant.
