TECGENAshburn Hill Corp., manufacturer of TECGEN SELECT® Brand Flame-Resistant Garments, is pleased to announce that each of their current products are now National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 2112 certified.

NFPA 2112 specifies the minimum design, performance, certification requirements, and test methods for flame-resistant garments for use in areas at risk from flash fires. The oil and gas industry is the most common market in which garments boasting NFPA 2112 certification are used.

TECGEN SELECT® Brand Fabric achieved the certification when the product was launched in May of 2010. “NFPA 2112 certification means our garments can be trusted to protect workers who are at risk to the threat of flash fire on an everyday basis,” says Jon Heard, CEO of Ashburn Hill Corp.  Furthermore, Heard mentions, “Certifying our fabric in the past and now certifying our finished garments signals that distributors and end users alike can trust that our company is dedicated to complying with the most well-known safety standard as it pertains to flash fire-resistant clothing.”

TECGEN SELECT® Brand Garments are inherently flame resistant and designed to improve worker safety, morale, and productivity.  By integrating the revolutionary, patented TECGEN® Fiber, TECGEN SELECT® garments are lightweight, breathable, and feature fast moisture-wicking technology.  Launched in May 2010, TECGEN SELECT® is preferred 3:1 in nationwide wear trials.
