GlenGuard FR protects against arc flash and flash fire hazards, a commonality within the electrical, oil and gas, chemical and industrial markets. Arc flash occurs when an electric current passes through the air between ungrounded and grounded conductors, creating the possibility of reaching up to 35,000°F. Subsequently, an ignition of clothing can occur, as well as burns directly to the skin. A flash fire is common in environments where flammable solids, liquids and their vapors, gases or dust are prevalent. When a flash fire ignites, there are considerable shock waves along with a rapidly moving flame front at a high temperature that can last for a short duration.
Thier fabrics are inherently flame resistant, embedded with Kermel SofShield fibers, guaranteeing they will never lose their FR properties, even after repeated washing and wear. They maintain their color even after three months of continuous sunlight exposure. They also keep their color long after 160 washings, an unheard of number in the industry. Because our colors are made with solution-dyed fibers—meaning that the color is introduced when the fiber is produced, rather than dying the fabric after it’s woven—they will maintain their vibrancy throughout the lifetime of the garment. Ultimately, GlenGuard’s colorfastness outlasts competition, ensuring that you are getting the most value out of every wear.
