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
