OccuNomix incorporates new FR ANSI standard for apparel

Workers requiring high visibility garments to perform their jobs, such as those working near moving vehicles or equipment, should know the American National Standards Institute, established by the International Safety Equipment Association (ANSI/ISEA), recently developed flame resistance (FR) specifications for apparel.

Incorporated in the ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 standard, high visibility apparel designated as flame resistant must now comply with flame resistance standards created specifically for apparel.

Offering a higher level of safety, the new standard does not allow materials to be used (such as polyester fabrics) that would melt or drip when exposed to flames or sparks. There are no fire resistant treated polyester fabrics currently available that meet the new FR ANSI standard.

"The OccuNomix Flame Resistant (FR) High Visibility Collection fully complies with the new ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 standard," said Jennifer McCoy, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "Our Flame Resistant Products are sewn with FR thread (Nomex or Kevlar) and most contain Nomex FR zippers. Flame Resistant Products contain 25-50 wash FR cotton, modacrylic or brand names you can trust including Banox, Proban, Indura and Nomex."

OccuNomix recommends that distributors and workers confirm that all high visibility garment components and layers (including interior layers of winter liners) are truly flame resistant. Verify that the product meets the new FR standards outlined below:

Correct FR Standards: NFPA 2112, ASTM F1506, NFPA1971, and NFPA 1975 among others (ANSI 107 and CSA Z96 both contain lists of the appropriate standards.)

OccuNomix International is the world's leading designer and manufacturer of high visibility safety apparel, ergonomic supports and prevention products for cold and heat stress. We combine industry expertise and innovative technology to develop our product line for a variety of industries including but not limited to construction, mining, refinery and transportation.
