Fire resistant clothing is designed to not only prevent ignition of the clothing, but to prevent the spread of flame and self-extinguish. This is incredibly important for those who work in potentially dangerous occupations, such as those who work in power, oil and gas, plant workers, electricians, and many more. Workers in these industries can be exposed to explosions, open fires, and more, and FR clothing can help protect them.
FR clothing should be considered a tool of the trade, similar to steel-toed boots or hard hats. FR clothing protects both the wearer and others around them by preventing the spread of flame and helping to prevent burns.
