Cintas launches Carhartt flame resistant jeans
Apr '12
Cintas Corporation North America's largest uniform supplier has added the Carhartt Flame Resistant (FR) Jean to its exclusive line of Carhartt Rental Workwear.

The new product was prompted by the overwhelming success of the Carhartt Rental Workwear line and the increased demand for flame resistant clothing.

The Carhartt FR Jean is a Hazard Risk Category 2 garment made with 14.75-ounce, 100% flame resistant cotton denim. It features a relaxed fit and leg openings that fit over work boots for added comfort.

“Cintas provides a one-stop-shop for all flame resistant and personal protective equipment needs,” says Brad Heizman, National Director of Garment Strategy for Cintas Corporation. “We are the largest industrial provider of FRC managed programs in North America, as well as the only company in the industry to offer Carhartt FR Rental Workwear.”

The Carhartt FR Jean combines the durability, quality and comfort of the Carhartt brand with Cintas' high service standards and the benefits of a rental program. When it comes to FRC, professionally managed rental programs are particularly important because of the specialized laundering process helps maintain the garments' level of protection for the wearer.

“We are very pleased with our relationship with Cintas and the success of the Carhartt Rental Workwear line,” says Rick Fecowicz, director of Carhartt Licensing. “The step into flame resistant rental products is a natural one, and we are excited about the opportunity the Carhartt FR Jean will present.”

Cintas Corporation also provides personal protective equipment such as face shields and balaclavas, voltage tools, task wear and more.

The Carhartt Rental Workwear line launched in 2010 as part of an exclusive partnership between Cintas Corporation and Carhartt; which was founded in 1889 and is a global manufacturer of premium rugged apparel. The line also includes a Work Shirt available in blue and sandstone, a Carpenter Jean, a 5-Pocket Work Jean, a Dungaree Pant available in navy and duck brown, and the Carhartt Rental Active Jacket available in Carhartt brown

Cintas Corporation provides highly specialized services to businesses of all types primarily throughout North America. Cintas designs, manufactures and implements corporate identity uniform programs, and provides entrance mats, restroom supplies, promotional products, first aid, safety, fire protection products and services and document management services for approximately 900,000 businesses.

Carhartt is a global premium work wear brand with a rich heritage of developing rugged apparel for workers on and off the job.
