Here at Aceworkgear we carry an extensive stock of Flame retardant overalls from top quality, established brands such as Portwest, Click FR, Click ARC, and Helly Hansen. 

Flame retardant overalls are essential and often mandatory for various industries, such as Oil & Gas, and Fabrication. Workers such as welders, fabricators and other metal workers who are exposed to heat, flame and sparks rely on these garments to protect them when performing daily tasks.

Flame Retardant Overalls | EN 531 Safety Standard

Until recently the safety standard used to identify FR workwear that offers protection from Heat and flames was EN 531.  The standard for Heat and Flame Protection Workwear has been replaced by EN ISO 11612. This new European standard ensures the safety garments conforming to this standard not only test the standard of fabric but also ensures the overall standard of these work garments.

Heat & Flame Resistant Overalls Considerations

When looking at flame retardant coveralls we can initially choose between two initial different types.

The first type being commonly known as ‘Proban’.  When looking at these products, it is important to remember that these particular garments are effective due to their chemical treatment. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of this chemical treatment can be effected by laundering.  However, the quality of these products can allow for a high number of laundering before the FR capabilities is diminished/effected, therefore the garments are likely to have came to the end of their working life before losing flame retardant capabilities.

The second type of FR garments are often know by brand names, such as Nomex or Protex. These particular garments are ‘inherently’ fire retardant and are capable of remaining flame retardant for their life and are unaffected by laundering.
