How flame-retardant fabrics save lives.
The professional clothing industry is well-versed in the challenge of protecting workers in all conditions. In this feature we delve into the changes within this sector and what pioneering innovation has been bought to the table from suppliers.
Today’s flame retardant fabrics offer protection, durability and comfort. With fire being a common cause of death and injury worldwide, employers want to make sure workers wear the appropriate flame retardant (FR) garment. But today’s wearer demands have changed, and they not only expect protection, but also comfort and apparel that has a ‘fashionable’ appearance.
Flame resistant (FR) garments owe much of their protective capabilities to the FR fabric from which they are made—and many times, end users do not realize they can drive this selection.
Tranemo’s TeraTx & TeraTx Stretch Offer Exceptional Performance with Lightweight FR/Arc Protection. Tranemo are one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of technical Flame Retardant / Arc Flash clothing and as such we have many years’ experience in developing and manufacturing flame retardant clothing.
