Utility workers, chemical workers, electricians, and several other professionals work daily in conditions that could result in burn trauma or potentially fatal injuries. Carhartt flame resistant clothing acts as somewhat of a barrier between workers and potential burn injuries, and comes in wide variety of safety apparel. Carhartt work wear has always been a dependable name, and doesn't fall short with their FRC line, either.
Anything producing sparks, electric arcs, or flash fires could lead to something much worse. Flame resistant clothes contain extinguishing chemicals to prevent damaging burns more adequately than standard clothing would. Flame resistant apparel shouldn't be confused with fire proof, but will provide thermal protection to flash fires which will self-extinguish once the source is removed.
Flame resistant clothing by Carhartt will not degrade over time, and the extinguishing chemicals will last the duration of the clothing's life as long as proper care methods are followed. Carhartt FRC items are available in shirts, pants, sweatshirts, overalls, and coveralls. Their causal design make any Carhartt safety work wear a natural part of any outfit, and makes protecting yourself comfortable and easy.
