National Safety Apparel Announces Its New WorkWear Line Now Available in UltraSoft AC(TM) Fabric, the Most Comfortable FR Material Yet
Press release date: January 31, 2013
The FR work garments were revamped in the second half of 2012 to be more comfortable, modern, and customizable, and the new UltraSoft AC™ fabric is the latest variety to be added. Work shirts and coveralls are available in either 7 oz. medium blue or khaki (8.3 cal/cm²), while coveralls and work pants are made with 9 oz. navy (12 cal/cm²) fabric.
Each garment is offered with optional added features to best fit the needs of one’s job. Work shirts are available with multiple pockets, pocket flaps, and short sleeves. The work pants offer cargo pockets, FR hook-and-loop adjusters, and additional knee reinforcement patches.
The enhanced softness of the material comes from its 88% Pima cotton and 12% high-tenacity nylon blend, resulting in an inherently flame resistant finished product.
All 7 oz. khaki and medium blue work shirts and coveralls are UL garment certified to NFPA 2112 for flash fire resistance in addition to their arc flash protection, making them a fresh option for utilities and oil & gas workers.
