Businesses operating in industries where there is a potential for clothing to ignite should invest in flame-resistant clothing for their employees. So, Doritex offers the most comprehensive choice of workwear in the industry, all from premier manufacturers. Our specialists will recommend the right type of garments, tailored to your needs.
We provide flame-resistant workwear from manufacturers like Walls FR and Bulwark. Our uniforms meet and exceed NFPA 70E, NFPA 2012, and ASTM 1506 standards, which protect workers from industrial hazards.
The NFPA 70E (Electrical Safety in the Workplace) standard specifies requirements for workplace electrical safety when working on energized electrical equipment and conductors. It requires the employer to perform a hazard assessment to determine the potential arc flash exposure from the equipment, which establishes the arc rating requirement for the workers’ protective clothing. Garments are required to meet the requirements of ASTM F1506.
Thousands of clothing-related injuries occur due to fire each year. The most severe burns are often not caused by the original hazard, but rather occur as the result of clothing igniting. Flame-resistant apparel does not ignite or continue to burn. Even single-layer flame-resistant clothing can significantly protect employees.
Flame-resistant clothing is your insurance policy.
In the unlikely event of a flash fire, electric arc flash or other catastrophe, flame-resistant clothing reduces burn injury, provides escape time, and increases chances of survival. Although a person caught in a flash fire or electric arc will likely have some injuries, flame-resistant clothing can dramatically reduce the severity. This could be the difference between life and death.
