The Utility of FR Jackets
Posted: Apr 16, 2019
There are several industries where there is a great risk of high heat, fire, hot metal, flying sparks, or hot liquids. There are several tools and protective equipment that people working in such environments can wear. But they also need some immediate protection for their bodies. This is why flame resistant clothing is needed for people who work in these kind of environments.
The most user friendly flame resistant (FR) piece of clothing is the FR jacket. It is light enough to wear over the normal work clothes without making the wearer uncomfortable in very hot conditions, and also comfortable enough to protect from very cold ambient temperatures. The biggest advantage of FR jackets is that the wearer is not only safe himself in case of a raging fire, but can also rush in wearing the jacket to rescue others who might be trapped in debris.
This marks a subtle difference FR (flame resistant) and FP (fire proof) clothing, including FR jackets. FR Jackets are more useful in protecting the wearer from intermittent bursts of fire or high heat. If you crush a FR jacket into a lump, pour an inflammable liquid over it, and then put a match to it, it might burn off. But a FR Jacket is not designed to be resistant to sustained fire. This makes a FR Jacket slightly different from, say, a fire fighter’s jacket, which provides primary protection. The FR jacket offers secondary protection.
In case you are an electrician who needs to deal with electric arcs, or a pharmaceutical / chemical worker who might be exposed to flash fires, a FR Jacket is mandatory for you to wear. In food processing plants or in the paper and pulp industry, workers are often exposed to combustible dust, and FR Jackets offers a good protection against this risk.
