NFPA 2112 provides the minimum design, performance, certification requirements and test methods for flame-resistant garments for use in areas at risk from flash fires. The intent is to reduce the injury contribution of the garment to a burn injury by providing a degree of protection against a short-duration thermal exposure resulting from an accidental exposure to flash fire.
In 2007, NFPA 2112 revised the document scope to add references to NFPA 2113: Standard on Selection, Care, Use, and Maintenance of Flame Resistant Garments for Protection Against Flash Fire. NFPA 2113 is a useful resource to ensure you are maintaining your FR garments appropriately.
Thousands of every day wearers of Flame Resistant protective apparel complain about the comfort level of their FR Clothing. FR apparel does NOT need to be uncomfortable and hot. TECGEN® brand FR garments achieve increased levels of arc flash protection with lighter weight, moisture wicking, breathable fabrics.
