Utilities workers and electricians finally have an answer to cold weather flash fire hazards
March 22, 2013
National Safety Apparel has released its newest innovation, outerwear UL Certified to the NFPA 2112 standard for flash fire resistance. These brand new garments are a spin on the popular Explorer Series™ parka, jacket, and bib overall released in the fall of 2012.
National Safety Apparel has overhauled its FR high visibility line of protective clothing for 2013. The fabrics used in producing the hi-vis shirts and sweatshirts have been upgraded to be an even brighter, more visible shade of fluorescent yellow.
The FR work garments were revamped in the second half of 2012 to be more comfortable, modern, and customizable, and the new UltraSoft AC™ fabric is the latest variety to be added. Work shirts and coveralls are available in either 7 oz. medium blue or khaki (8.3 cal/cm²), while coveralls and work pants are made with 9 oz. navy (12 cal/cm²) fabric.
