When evaluating flame-resistant clothing, there are several factors to consider. All FR/AR fabrics are not created equal and understanding what’s offered – and what’s possible – is critical. 

The days of having to sacrifice comfort to have a sustainable, trusted FR/AR garment have come and gone. Workers need FR/AR clothing they feel comfortable and confident in, and employers need to consider which attributes will create a want-to-wear protective uniform. 

Join Westex®: A Milliken Brand and Scott Francis, Technical Sales Manager, in a conversation about the key drivers behind the latest in FR/AR fabric technology. Attendees will learn from practical perspectives across the following topics and gain insights into how each helps to drive innovation:

  • Protection: risk assessment, human error and key roles of FR/AR clothing
  • Comfort: innovative FR/AR fabric blends
  • Sustainability: durability + comfort
  • Trust: PPE best practices
