FRC Industry Standards
FracWear® FR protective work apparel is secondary protective clothing, which is designed for continuous wear in designated areas where intermittent exposure to flame or heat is possible. It is to be used in conjunction with primary protective clothing where significant exposure to flame or heat is likely, such as molten substance splash.
FracWear® FR protective garments meet the following requirements:
- ASTM International Standard F 2302-08 for labeling protective clothing as heat and flame-resistant.
- National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 70E,
- Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Safety, 2009 Edition
- ASTM Standard F1506-2a, Flame-Resistant Materials for Wearing Apparel for Use by Electrical Workers Exposed to Momentary Electric Arc and Related Thermal Hazards.
Because these fabrics are flame-resistant, they are acceptable under the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Final Rule 1910.269, Final Rule on Electrical Protective Equipment.
Where appropriate, FracWear® FR garments have been certified by Underwriters laboratories to the requirement of NFPA 2112, Standard on Flame Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial personnel Against Fire.
