For an FR program to be fully effective, each layer of PPE matters—including your base layers. In the case of a flash fire or electric arc, heat can transfer from the outermost FR layer through the clothing and to your undershirt—that’s why it’s best to wear (and mandate your team wear) an FR base layer. By doing so, you eliminate the question of whether or not a fabric is meltable, you add a second layer of FR protection and, believe it or not, provide greater comfort.
Bulwark FR and Workrite Fire Service flame-resistant base layers are modeled after your favorite performance wear, so they wick sweat away from the body to keep workers cool and dry, even under the hot sun. Features like stretch mobility panels ensure you’re not only protected, but you’re also able to move, stretch and bend without anything riding up and restricting your movement. Our flame resistant apparel is tested to the highest standards and offers guaranteed FR protection for the life of the garment. Layer up with our button-down shirts or outerwear for even more protection.
