About our Fire Resistant Shirts

How do fire resistant shirts provide protection? Most importantly, FR clothing has the ability to self extinguish when the ignition source has been removed. If you become exposed to a fire, the garment will not continue burning after you manage to remove yourself from the flames. Unlike the standard 100% cotton shirt, the material does not add additional fuel to fire. Several different materials are proven to be effective at hitting this target, including Tecasafe, Nomex, Indura, and Indura Ultrasoft. Each material offers a certain combination of comfort, flame resistance, and strength. It is important to analyze your specific risk to fire exposure to choose a fabric that will be ideal for your application. For example, an electrician who is exposed to electrical arcs will require a shirt with different properties than a pharmaceutical worker who is exposed to a chemical fire. It is important to become familiar with the Hazard Risk Categories (HRC), which range on a scale from 0 to 4. Category 0 has no requirement for flame retardant clothing, while category 4 requires double layers of full body protective garments. In most cases, employers will set a minimum standard of protective clothing that must be worn in the workplace with a corresponding HRC number. If you work in the electrical industry, you must also consider the Arc Thermal Protective Value (ATPV) of a FR shirt. This metric provides the maximum capability for arc-flash protection as measured in calories per centimeter squared.
