Our FR Hi-Vis Rainwear Jacket will protect you from the rain and dry. We offer a wide range of options, from waist-shaped arc-fired raincoats to flash-fired high-top bib overalls. Choosing FR raincoats, providing the right level of FR protection for work hazards is half the battle. Of course, other factors must also be considered, such as price, availability, comfort and fitness. Choosing a comfortable and fit FR raincoat is especially important as it increases the likelihood that workers will comply with employer PPE requirements. We will provide FR clothing samples for workers to test, and then, through their try-on, provide their feedback, including comfort, flexibility, breathability and ease of wearing and taking off the garment, adjust production to meet customer satisfaction FR Working raincoats make their work safe and secure.
Three Types of FR Rainwear Work Jacket
If you’re still a bit confused about the definition of FR rainwear, there’s a simple way to look at. The flurry of standard-setting activity over the past two decades has created three distinct categories of FR rainwear. They are:
• Low-level FR rainwear that passes the vertical flame test in ASTM D6413 (showing no visible flame or glow after 2 seconds and a char length of 6 inches or less after the ignition source is removed). This type of rainwear provides limited flame resistance.
• Arc-resistant rainwear that meets the performance requirements of ASTM F1891. Rainwear that complies with F1891 will have an arc rating and a heatattenuation factor, which help to quantify the level of protection that the rainwear will provide against the intense heat and energy generated by an arc-flash explosion.
• Flash-fire-resistant rainwear that meets the performance requirements of ASTM F2733. Rainwear that complies with F2733 must pass a laboratory test
in which the garment is exposed to a three-second hydrocarbon flash fire. The garment must not melt, drip, ignite or shrink, and cannot allow more than a 40.
