Ensure maximum protection by properly donning your flame-resistant workwear. • Button, zip, or snap the shirt or coverall as high as possible up the chest. • Never wear sleeves rolled up, exposing your arms. • Button or snap cuffs at the wrists. • Always tuck in your shirttails.
The most common questions we hear are, "How does FR clothing work?" and “What does FR workwear actually do?” FR, or Flame-Resistant, clothing resists ignition and self-extinguishes once the source of ignition is removed. What does that mean? It means that the garment’s flame-resistant properties ensure it will resist catching fire, and if it does catch fire, it will not continue to burn once the source of combustion is removed.
