WILMINGTON, MA by Ronald D. Croatti - UniFirst Corporation has announced it is now offering Flame Resistant (FR) work uniforms made from Tecasafe® Plus, the newest inherently flame resistant fabric on the market.
Manufactured under the UniFirst Armorex FR® brand, Tecasafe Plus work uniforms are noted for their comfort and meet NFPA 70E and 2112 compliance standards by offering Category 2 electric arc protection, with an ATPV rating of 8.4 for shirts and coveralls and a 9.3 ATPV rating for pants.
In test trials conducted by the fabric manufacturer and the Naval Sea Systems Command in Norfolk, VA, Tecasafe Plus was favored 4:1 by wearers for comfort over other FR fabrics, said David Osbon, protective apparel product manager at UniFirst.
Osbon said UniFirst is offering a free Tecasafe Plus fabric sample swatch to anyone interested in feeling firsthand the comfort of the protective material. Requests may be made by visiting http://www.unifirst-uniforms.com/uniforms-workwear/ or by calling UniFirst at (800) 455-7654.
