Safety clothing: Ultra-lightweight FR clothing line introduced

Safety clothing: Workrite Uniform Company Inc.®, a flame-resistant (FR) clothing manufacturer, announces the launch of a Workrite® FR product line featuring 5.3-ounce GlenGuard® fabric. The new Workrite FR GlenGuard 5.3 line offers one of the lightest weight Category 2 fabrics currently available on the FR clothing market.

The new GlenGuard 5.3 FR clothing line by Workrite Uniform features one of the lightest weight Category 2 fabrics currently available on the FR clothing market. Produced by Glen Raven, the GlenGuard fabric offers an arc thermal performance value (ATPV) of 9.5 cal/cm2, and is UL certified to NFPA 2112. This new Workrite FR GlenGuard 5.3 line aims to increase wearer compliance by providing an unprecedented level of comfort and protection.

"Unfortunately, some FR garments can be heavy or cumbersome, prompting workers to increase their comfort level by rolling up their sleeves or untucking their shirts ­­ exposing them to greater risk or injury," said Mark Saner, Workrite Uniform technical manager. "Our new GlenGuard 5.3 line represents a breakthrough in comfort that maximizes worker safety by offering an FR clothing option that workers want to wear and wear properly."

The new Workrite® FR line includes coveralls, shirts and pants in a variety of colors -- all featuring the 5.3-ounce GlenGuard fabric. In addition to FR protection and comfortable, lightweight fabric, the garments also offer moisture management, durability and exceptional colorfastness ­­ a hallmark of GlenGuard fabrics.

All Workrite FR GlenGuard 5.3 products are now available for business-to-business (B2B) purchase in the United States. Workrite Uniform Company, a B2B affiliate of Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company, also offers a variety of other FR apparel through its brands: Workrite FR, Walls® FR, Dickies® FR and Workrite® Fire Service.
