Big Fogg Gear to Keep Football Players Warm

Big Fogg, Inc. is providing its Heating Benches and Torpedo Heaters (350,000 BTUs) for the NFC Championship Game in Chicago on Jan. 23, 2011.

This equipment will make the football players for the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers more comfortable and be better protected from the cold weather during the game.

Meanwhile, Nike has announced its partnership with the French Football Federation (FFF), unveiling the new team kits with French players. The lightweight, technical design features Nike Dri-FIT technology and engineered ventilation systems to help keep players cool.

Among the other developments related to the game of football, technology leader Intel is collaborating with industry experts and several universities to tackle the issue of football-related head injuries.

And athletic products company Adidas has unveiled its new Techfit compression football jerseys for seven NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) teams including Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Cincinnati, UCLA, Texas A&M and Louisville. 

Big Fogg Heating Benches have patented Helmet Holders on them that warm helmets, gloves or hats. This capability may help prevent concussions, as warmed helmets are less likely to freeze during the game.

2011 will mark the 11th straight year that Big Fogg has worked the NFL post season. This includes the last seven Super Bowl games. During this time period, Big Fogg technicians have set up and maintained Misting Fans, Heating Benches, Radiant Heaters and/or Pro-Kool, WayCool Evaporative Cooling Fans for games.

Next weekend, Big Fogg will be in Honolulu setting up Misting Fans for both the NFC and AFC All-Stars. Big Fogg Misting Fans have been on the sidelines of every Pro Bowl game since 1999, says the company.

Last Sunday, Big Fogg set up its heating benches for both the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks. 

Christopher Miehl, president of Big Fogg, who worked on the sideline, stated, “The weather was very cold and on both sidelines you could see the buildup of snow on the tables and the ground, but not on the heating benches.”

Big Fogg designs and installs misting systems and misting fans for heat relief, dust suppression, odor control, pre-cooling air conditioning units and humidity control systems.

The announcement was made Friday, Jan. 21.
