From Mount Vernon FR: Trends and takeaways from NSC 2019
The biggest takeaway from the NSC 2019 Congress and Expo is the wide variety of comfortable and stylish flame-resistant clothing available on the market today. One of the biggest game changers is the addition of stretch. Garments with added stretch have the same protection and durability, but allow for greater mobility and comfort. You can also find lighter weight options that incorporate new fiber blends and unique fabric constructions.
Another key trend is the increase in FRC options for women. From pants and shirts, to coveralls and jackets, there's now more FR clothing than ever that’s made specifically to fit and flatter women. While this may be exciting for ladies working in the field who want to look more professional, the real benefit is that properly fitting FR garments offer superior protection.
