With Armorex FR® you can select Flame Resistant workwear garments made from the most proven protective fabrics on the market. Combining these garments with a UniFirst Service Program means you get proven protection when and where you need it. When evaluating FR fabrics for protection, potential hazard assessments must take into account Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV or arc rating). Such ratings appear on the labels of all UniFirst FR apparel. Matching the arc rating with the potential job hazard maximizes worker protection against the possibility of burn injury or death.
