People who work in welding, mining, oil and gas industry always ask, "How does fire resistant uniform work?" and “What does fire resistant uniform actually do?”There are a lot of requirements when it comes to fire resistant uniform. Do you need flame-resistant or flame-retardant clothing? Whatever the case, you suddenly have reason to be curious and ask — what exactly is fire resistant uniform?
Fire resistant uniform resists ignition and self-extinguishes once the source of ignition is removed. What does that mean?
It means that the uniform’s flame resistant properties ensure it will resist catching fire, and if it does catch fire, it will not continue to burn once the source of combustion is removed. Flame resistant uniform can and will burn when introduced to open flame from a flash fire, arc flash, combustible dust explosion or other fire sources. Remember, fire resistant uniform is NOT fireproof. It is after the flame source is removed, that the FR “magic” happens. Flame resistant uniform will not contribute to the severity of burn injury. If an employee works in places where heat, fire or electrical injuries are a real possibility, they should be wearing fire resistant uniform. The self-extinguishing feature of Fire resistant uniform gives the workers valuable escape time from dangerous places.
