July 26, 2021 – UniFirst Corp.—which supplies and services uniforms, workwear, and facility service products—has added the Bulwark iQ Series of safety apparel to its FR (flame resistant) and high-visibility PPE (personal protective equipment) offering.
This collection of work shirts, pants, coveralls, etc., contains NFPA Category 2, 2112-compliant arc-rated safety garments. UniFirst’s Adam Soreff explains the iQ Series purports to address complaints about Category 2 FR workwear being too heavy, uncomfortable, and “simply not breathable”.
Available via UniFirst rental services, the Bulwark iQ Series can be tailored specifically to each employee’s job function. With regularly scheduled uniform services, all items are picked up, laundered, repaired, and replaced as needed.
