HOW MUCH Flame PROTECTION DO YOU NEED?

A risk assessment at a workplace begins with an analysis of all the potential hazards. The findings from this study help in determining suitable garments that offer the correct level of protection and the best comfort. We provide personal protective workwear solutions for almost all occupations, working conditions and – not least – for all your risk assessments.

CHOOSE INHERENT OR FLAME RETARDENT

To protect your skin, all our flame-retardant garments feature textile technology that inhibit the combustion process and create a protective barrier between the heat source/the flame and the skin to prevent second-degree burns in the event of an accident. Our range of flame-protected garments is divided in two categories – Flamestat and Flame. Flamestat stands for garments made of inherently retardant fabrics and Flame represents garments made of flame retardant treated fabrics.

FLAMESTAT - INHERENT FLAME RETARDANT FABRICS

The flame protection in our Flamestat collection fabrics is already integrated in the fibres. In addition to supreme protection and comfort, Flamestat also allows you to enjoy full protection throughout your garment’s lifetime.

FLAME - FLAME RETARDANT TREATED FABRICS

The fabrics in our Flame and Flamtech® collections are flame retardant treated. The protection is bound to the fabric and is durable over time provided the garments are properly washed.

FLAMESTAT MULTINORM

Our high performance Flamestat Multinorm collection combines certified protection with superior comfort, flexibility and durability. All Flamestat garments have inherent flame protection, are antistatic, withstands a variety of hazards and provide basic protection from chemical splash.
The Flamestat garments are certified and tested according to both electric arc box test and open arc test, which means the garments have an art rating stated in cal/cm2 (ATPV or EBT). All Flamestat garments are tested for electric arc layer-on-layer protection on both material and garment level which provides facts on exact arc rating and box test class 2.

OUR FLAME PROTECTIVE MATERIALS

THE BEST PROTECTION AGAINST ELECTRIC ARC

ATHP material with inherent flame protection made from modacrylic, cotton and antistatic fibre with a dirt, oil and water repellent surface. Heavier than our ATHS fabric, thicker material that provides better protection, but still provides great comfort. Provides excellent heat insulation and prevents second-degree burns. Quick drying with excellent moisture management properties.

WEIGHT: 395g/sqm  LOI: 35%
ATPV: 16.8 cal/sqcm HAF: 84,2%

LIGHT WEIGHT WITH EXCELLENT HEAT INSULATION

ATHS material with inherent flame protection made from modacrylic, cotton, polyamide and antistatic fibres. The fabric's surface is dirt, oil and water repellent with a soft reverse side. A lightweight material and at the same time strong against wear and tear since it contains polyamide. Provides excellent heat insulation and prevents second-degree burns. Quick drying with excellent moisture management properties.

WEIGHT: 300g/sqm  LOI: 35%
ATPV: 10.5cal/sqcm HAF: 81,4%

COMPLETE PROTECTION IN ALL WEATHERS

GXH is a GORE-TEX® material in two layers. Wind and waterproof as well as breathable with inherent flame retardant fibres made from modacrylic, cotton, polyester and anti-static unique GORE-TEX® membrane. The pores in the GORE-TEX® membrane prevents water droplets from penetration while smaller water molecules can pass out, keeping you dry. Provides excellent heat insulation and prevents second-degree burns.

WEIGHT: 275g/sqm  LOI: 35%
IEC 61482-2: 29,6 cal/sqcm, cl 2

HIGHEST PROTECTION AGAINST
SPLASHES FROM MONTEN IRON

MFAT inherent flame retardant fabric designed to protect the wearer from splashes of molten metal. The material's composition combines viscose FR with the nature's own natural anti-flame fibre wool, which together have very good thermal insulation properties. Polyamide fibres provide further strength.  MFAT is certified for protection against splashes of molten iron and aluminium.

FLAMTECH

Our Flamtech® collection holds high visibility garments that have a broad protective function. The material is flame retardant treated and can withstand both the heat from an electric arc and the high temperature from molten iron. In addition, it is approved for welding.

WHICH RISK ASSESMENTS DO YOU HAVE AT YOUR WORKPLACE?

A risk assessment at a workplace begins with an analysis of all the potential hazards. Examples of hazards that are investigated in a risk assessment:

Thermal hazards: High convective heat, high radial heat, flame contact, steam, molten metals and hot surfaces.

Electric hazards: High voltage, electric arc, static charge build-up.

RISK ASSESMENT:
WELDERS

risk assesment for welders
  • Protection against welding sparks (EN ISO 11611).
  • Garments suitable for welding have fewer pockets and functional details than other garments.
  • Often used together with welding apron, helmet and gloves.

RISK ASSESMENT:
ELECTRICIANS

risk assesment for electricians
  • Protection from contact with heat and flame (EN ISO 11612).
  • Garments certified for protection against thermal hazards that may occur in electric arc accidents (IEC 61482-2).
  • ATPV/EBT value of 8 cal/cm2 is the general guideline. If risk is higher several layers of protective clothing is recommended or garments with higher arc-rating.

RISK ASSESMENT:
OIL WORKERS

risk assesment for oil workers
  • Protection from contact with heat and flame (EN ISO 11612).
  • Garments certified for protection from sudden discharges of electrostatic energy and where there is a risk that static sparks may ignite flammable substances, such as gas or oil (EN 1149-5).
  • Conductive materials such as metal zips and buttons must be concealed for higher security.
  • Protection against rain and increased visibility are also important for this group.  

RISK ASSESMENT:
RAIL WORKERS

risk assesment rail workers
  • Protection from contact with heat and flames (EN ISO 11612).
  • Garments certified for making the user visible to the surroundings in daylight, at night and in poor weather conditions (EN ISO 20471).
  • Some workers also need garments certified according to EN ISO 11611 for welding or similar work.
