Flame-resistant (FR) safety apparel can be used to protect workers from the risk of flash fire, electrical arc flash and molten metal splash injuries. The use of FR clothing can provide the necessary thermal protection to shield workers at the moment of exposure. Once the source of ignition is removed, flame-resistant garments will self-extinguish, greatly limiting the severity of a burn.
Elliotts safety apparel utilises the material safety and FR properties in the following FR materials to make them suitable for workers in all types of worksites across the electrical arc flash, oil and gas, metal fabrication, mining, electrical, firefighting and chemical industries.
TenCate Tecasafe Plus is engineered to provide electric arc and flash fire protection that lasts twice as long as FR-treated cotton fabrics. Tecasafe Plus is soft and lightweight fabric that provides comfortable wear. Its inherent protection will never wash or wear out.
Banwear fabrics provide flame resistance that is guaranteed for the life of the garment. Its composition of 88% cotton and 12% high-tenacity nylon combines the comfort of cotton with extra garment durability.
ALu-Safe is a high-performance workwear fabric developed specifically and especially to protect workers in primary aluminium smelters who are exposed to the hazards and dangers of molten aluminium and cryolite (reduction cell flux) splash. The fabric also offers protection from hazards such as radiant and convective heat and electric arc.
