KnowYourFR.com is a recently launched website to help evaluate flame-resistant garments. It is offered to raise awareness of relevant characteristics of FR fabrics and garments prior to making a purchase.
The website centers around a “Not All FR is Created Equal” video. It covers many aspects involved in evaluating flame-resistant fabric durability— from testing protocols to after-wash performance and shrinkage control. The video also encourages awareness of various properties involving the way a garment is manufactured. These properties can affect wear life, including product consistency, construction techniques, and pattern grading.
Although created as an informational platform by this company and Westex Inc., the video does not mention any brand names or promote either company’s products.
