Permanently flame resistant (FR) workwear is a necessity in several industries. The secret to maximizing the protection that these garments offer is effective layering, as CHARNAUD® explains. One layer provides excellent protection, but two or more will ensure a more resilient barrier against heat and flame.

How to Optimize Flame-Resistant Workwear

Head-to-foot® protection is essential for firefighters and other workers who are routinely exposed to flame and extreme heat. Effective fire protection is not achieved via the vertical arrangement of garments alone. Layering plays a central role in optimizing fire protection PPE.

Layering is essential in preventing heat stress, as well as insulating against cold weather.
