Magid, a leading manufacturer and supplier of safety solutions and personal protective equipment (PPE), expands its clothing line to include a flame resistant welding jacket. The Magid® FR welding jacket (Item #1837GRTW) features ANSI Cut Level 4 sleeves and a breathable FR mesh back panel to help prevent heat exhaustion. The FR mesh material provides protection while allowing body heat to escape so workers stay cool; however it’s not recommended for overhead welding or other applications where sparks and slag could get trapped in flame resistant mesh material.
“Welding environments expose workers to high temperature environments,” says Jennifer Walrich, Product Manager at Magid. “Our new welding jacket, manufactured in our Chicagoland facility, has caught the attention of safety professionals because it solves the problem of protecting workers while keeping them comfortable so their work is not compromised or interrupted.”
