Flame protection

We do not compromise your safety

High-performance flame protection

We offer a complete range of inherently as well as flame-retardant treated garments that have been developed in close collaboration with our users. Our range of flame-protective workwear is used by electricians, welders and workers in high-voltage environments, foundries and the off-shore and petro-chemical industries. The wide assortment makes it easy for you to find the flame protective workwear that is required for your occupation and risk assessment, while adding to your safety. Many of the garments are also available in women’s models.

Your safety is our top priority

Most flame-protected garments in our assortment are OEKO-TEX® certified  and all products  are carefully tested – comprising everything from strength, tensile and abrasion, to real-life usability and comfort. By certifying different garment combinations through extensive layer-on-layer testing, we can provide exact certification values for the increased level of protection you get when wearing combining different garments.  Our garments provide the ultimate protection according to  the latest European norms and certifications, and most of them offer  Multinorm protection. When it comes to flame protection, your safety is our top priority.

Flamestat – garments with inherent flame protection

The flame protection in our Flamestat collection is inherent, which means that the flame protection is integrated in the fibres.   In addition to supreme protection and comfort, Flamestat also allows you to enjoy full protection throughout your garment’s lifetime. Some examples of materials with inherent flame protection are modacrylics, wool and flame-protected viscose. Our Flamestat collection includes a wide range of Multinorm, stretch, GORE-TEX and molten-metal garments, as well as underwear, baselayer and accessories.

Flame – garments with flame-retardant treatment

The garments in our Flame collections are made of flame-retardant treated materials.  The treatment interacts with the cotton in the material and gives a permanent  protection that lasts the entire lifespan of the garment. Some examples of flame-retardant treated materials are cotton and polyester fabrics that have been treated with Proban. The flame-retardant treatment of the fabrics is approved in accordance with the latest EU-harmonised chemical legislation, including REACH. The garments are also OEKO-TEX® certified. Our Flame collection includes Multinorm, welding and welding class 2 garments, as well as clothing for cold, wind and rain.

Dress in layers to increase your protection

Flame-retardant garments prevent flames from spreading and protect against heat for a limited time. By wearing multiple layers of flame-protected clothing, you increase the amount of energy that the garment system can withstand and the amount of time it takes for the heat to spread. That means you boost your protection against second-degree burn injuries significantly.  Watch our movie to learn more  about our electric arc tests and dressing layer on layer.

Layer 1: Flame-retardant underwear transports body moisture away, keeps you dry and prevents chilling of the skin.

Layer 2: Select long sleeve T-shirt, sweatshirt, shirt or fleece jacket based on your working conditions.

​​​​​​​Layer 3: The outer layer is the protective shield that secures your safety.

Layer on layer tests increase your safety

By testing different garment combinations, we can ensure the exact values and provide the increased safety level you achieve by wearing the garments together. We have performed tests for electric arc, heat & flame and welding and certified the garment combinations. You find all garment combinations in the tabels further down.

Flame protection for women

We have a broad assortment of flame-protected workwear for women, both in our Flame and our Flamestat collections. You can mix and match garments from both collections to get the outfit you want . You can also combine with our men’s and unisex garments which are available from sizes XS and C44. Our flame-retardant workwear for women includes a wide range of trousers, t-shirts and jackets, as well as underwear and baselayer.

Combine your high-visibility garments for a higher safety class

All our high-visibility garments are certified according to EN ISO 20471 and are divided into three different classes – 1, 2 and 3 – depending on how visible they are. Class 3 is the highest level of visibility. In the Fristads High-Visibility Clothing System we have co-certified our collections, so garments in class 1 or 2 can be combined in various ways to obtain a higher safety class. All garments have been given a specific code, based on type of garment and classification, for example U3 or T4. The code is shown as a symbol in the product information and in the CE label in the garment. To make it easier to calculate the safety class of a specific garment combination, we have created a convenient quick-reference guide.

How large can your
​​​​​​​logotype be?

On garments personalised with company logos, it is important to ensure that the logo does not obscure too great a proportion of the fluorescent or flame-retardant area.  These tables will help you determine how large your logo can be.
