The comfort of flame resistant (FR) garments has rapidly become a critical factor in a wearer’s purchasing decision. You no longer have to sacrifice your FR PPE’s protection against flame and arc hazards in order to be comfortable.

During this webinar we will explain the key attributes and factors which influence garment comfort including: moisture management, fabric hand, and garment fit. We will explore how the body cools and regulates heat so you can better understand how a fabric and garment’s design can impact your comfort. The presentation will also provide an overview of key industry measurement techniques, including a new state-of-the-art technology. With an understanding of how the body works and what comfort attributes to look for in a garment, you will be better educated and prepared in making your next FR garment purchase.

Join us as we walk through the science and help shed some light on the mystery of comfort.
