There is a new and growing awareness among safety professionals for how flame-resistant (FR) protective clothing performs not only at the moment of heat or fire exposure, but also how a garment performs and protects in those vital seconds just after exposure that an employee needs to escape. Different products can give vastly different levels of protection. Laboratory testing and certifications on stationary, motionless fabrics do not fully reflect how an FR garment will perform in a real world emergency on a wearer racing to safety.
Learn the critical properties of flame-resistant fibers and fabrics that determine if an exposed FR garment will disintegrate and literally fall off an accident victim, or stay intact and flexible providing continued protection and mobility to allow for a successful escape to safety
