If you are a company that already manufactures workwear and HiViz garments, you may be interested in expanding your product line to include FR garments. FR clothing, or flame-resistant clothing, is designed to protect workers from flash fires, electric arcs, and other thermal hazards. FR garments can save lives and reduce injuries in high-risk industries such as oil and gas, electric utilities and mining.
However, making FR garments is not as simple as adding reflective tape to a regular garment. FR garments must meet strict safety standards and regulations, especially in the U.S. and Canada. One of the main requirements for selling FR garments in these markets is certification of the fabric, reflective tape and other components in a UL laboratory according to the NFPA 2112 standard.
NFPA 2112, or the Standard on Flame-Resistant Clothing for Protection of Industrial Personnel Against Short-Duration Thermal Exposures from Fire, specifies the minimum performance requirements and test methods for FR clothing materials and garments. NFPA 2112 covers the design, construction, evaluation, and certification of FR garments that provide protection against flash fire exposures.
How we can help
We design and manufacture high quality reflective tape for FR clothing. Our reflective tape is made of durable and flexible materials that can withstand high temperatures, washing, and abrasion.
