Working in oil and gas or serving as an electrician, welder or chemical plant employee represent just a few examples of occupations that have a higher fire risk. For these workers, it’s essential — and in most cases, required by law — to wear fire flame-resistant clothing to reduces the risk of burns from arc and flash fires and other potential hazards.

What to Consider When Buying FR Outerwear Online

NFPA 2112 standards govern flame-resistant clothing and set forth minimum performance and design requirements. Because of this, NFPA 2112-compliant FR jackets and outerwear can be counted on for safety in most situations. Be wary of purchasing any product that isn’t rated to this standard or that advertises itself as “heat-proof” or another non-specific term. 

A jacket’s arc rating is another important consideration. Arc rating is a measure of the minimum amount of thermal energy necessary to cause a second- or third-degree burn with a 50% probability. The higher the arc rating, the more protection a flame-retardant jacket offers.

FR outerwear should be NFPA 2112-compliant with an arc rating appropriate for the environment and application it will be used in. If you’re unsure what a given job or environment requires, contact one of our representatives directly for assistance.
