Why Flame Resistant Clothing? 🔥


Image result for fireThe first thing everyone notices about flame resistant clothing is that it is sometimes double the price of regular work wear. But why is it so important? We all know it protects you from short-term thermal incidents. But what some don’t know is that the main reason we wear it is not to protect ourselves from the fire itself, but from the possibility of igniting and burning after the heat has been removed. Normal clothing such as cotton and nylon continue burning even after the heat source is removed.

Yes, the cost of FR clothing can be more expensive but in the long run it will save you a lot of money. The type of fabric used for FR clothing lasts a lot longer than regular clothes that get worn out easily. Also, the cost of injury these days is absurd! A burn can result in medical fees, lost work time and increased insurance.

However, at Construction Gear, we try to bring you FR clothing at the lowest price possible. See below for some of the most popular FR clothing and accessories we carry.
