Protective double layer knit hood offers fire protection

Flamesafe Workwear introduces flame-resistant HRC 3 knit hood.

September 1, 2010—Flamesafe Workwear introduced its new HRC 3 double-layer knit hood balaclava. With an ATPV rating of 32.4 cal/cm2, it is one of the most protective knit hoods available. The Flamesafe engineering process imparts durable flame-resistant properties to cotton by producing an invisible, long chain flame retardant polymer, impregnated into the core of every fiber. When flame comes into contact with MaxiSoft FR cotton, an insulating char is formed with no melting, dripping, smoldering or after glow. MaxiSoft retains all the essential comfort features of natural cotton such as air permeability and moisture transmission. If you or your team are in danger of flash fire, heat or electric arc exposure, Flamesafe Workwear has an inner garment solution that can help save your skin.
