Radians enters AR/FR market with launch of new VolCore line
Radians recently launched VolCore™, their new line of Flame Resistant (FR) workwear that helps protect workers from short-term thermal hazards, including arc flash and flash fire. VolCore AR/FR workwear self-extinguishes and does not melt when exposed to flame, dramatically reducing the severity of burn injuries.
Industries that require AR/FR clothing include utilities, oil and gas, refinery, chemical, petrochemical, paper and pulp industry, food processing, paint, and more.
According to Tom Weeks, the Radians Product Champion for Flame Resistant Clothing, “Each UL certified piece in the VolCore line has been finely crafted with durable materials and distinct features to keep workers safe, comfortable, and compliant with industry-wide FR standards, including ASTM 1506, NFPA 2112 and NFPA 70E PPE CAT 2.”
Their line includes CAT 2 coveralls, shirts, and denim blue jeans. Radians also offers customizations that include reflective striping, patches, direct embroidery, screen-printing, tool pockets, and mic tabs. Coverall and shirt sizes include M to 5XL with a tall option in the coveralls FRCA-002--khaki. The jeans are available in several waist sizes, standard lengths, and custom lengths.
In addition to launching VolCore, Radians recently acquired Neese Industries, a global leader in FR Workwear, which will also facilitate Radians’ expansion into the AR/FR workwear protection category.
