Founded in 1999, fourth element has grown its Military & Professional Division to become one of the most successful suppliers of protective underwater and extreme environment terrestrial clothing to militaries, emergency services, and offshore industries around the World. From its head office in Cornwall, UK, the company is now a globally recognised brand in this sector with customers on every continent. In 2017 fourth element expanded its headquarters into a 25,000 sq/ft warehouse and office facility, to accommodate further growth and enable development of new products, stock holding and personnel.

Constantly evolving, our research and development programme has grown year on year, working closely with our clients and partners around the world, developing ground-breaking solutions to the ever-changing threats. Whether that is fire retardancy, heat signature reduction, thermal protection or magnetic free products for the special forces, we have the capability to create bespoke solutions tailor made for your specific requirements, whether that is simply branding or complex re-engineering.

Fourth Element’s passion is ocean conservation & exploration: all of our fabrics are sourced responsibly, again with thanks to our research & development team we have been successful in sourcing ghost fishing nets and re-purposing the material to create our Thermocline range – a breathable, zero buoyancy alternative to neoprene wetsuits.
