October 15, 2015 – Workrite Uniform Company, a flame-resistant (FR) clothing manufacturer, has launched a Workrite FR product line featuring 5.3-oz GlenGuard fabric. The line offers “one of the lightest weight Category 2 fabrics currently available on the FR clothing market”, Workrite says.
Produced by Glen Raven, the GlenGuard fabric offers an arc thermal performance value (ATPV) of 9.5 cal/cm2, and is UL certified to NFPA 2112.
The line includes coveralls, shirts and pants in a variety of colours. In addition to FR protection and “comfortable, lightweight fabric,” the garments also offer moisture management, durability and colorfastness, the company claims.
