Gerbing's Core Heat - How It Works
Thermal factors such as air temperature, radiant temperature, air velocity and humidity all contribute to our thermal comfort. Stubbornly, Mother Nature refuses us the ability to control these thermal factors. However, personal factors such as the type of clothing we wear and the activity levels we perform are two elements of thermal comfort we can control.
Although we all have different tolerance levels for the cold, we all know what it is like to be warm and comfortable. The CORE HEAT products by Gerbing's work with the body's natural ability to generate heat. Adjusting the intensity of the heat allows the user to stay warm and comfortable in a wider range of temperatures without tapping into the resources the body needs to maintain its other health dependent functions. Our products allow you to concentrate heat to specific areas of the body such as just your hands, your backside or your entire core, helping to offset the effects of being cold.
Core Heat Transfer System
The CORE HEAT TRANSFER SYSTEM™ product line uses a combination of our patented Microwire® or Nanowire™ heating technologies in conjunction with high powered, but small and lightweight microprocessor-managed 7V lithium battery packs that are rechargeable for over 500 cycles. Gerbing's Core Heat series of heated products are designed to prevent the body's physiological response of vasoconstriction that occurs when colder temperatures are detected and the nervous system restricts blood flow to the extremities. The Core Heat Transfer System allows you to maintain blood flow and a constant level of thermal comfort preventing vasoconstriction.
Microwire® Heat Technology
Incorporates Gerbing's patented process of using micro-sized stainless steel fibers that are intertwined and encased in a waterproof coating. The Microwire® is then woven into a heating matrix that is then placed in the garment. This system is the most durable and efficient heating technology ever developed.
Nanowire™ Heat Technology
Utilizes Gerbing's patented process of using conductive textile fibers that are fabricated into heating panels and then waterproof sealed. The heating system is then strategically placed throughout the garment creating an intense, but uniform heat coverage.
