Oct '09
DRIFIRE, an industry leader in comfortable flame resistant work-wear development, has announced the new expanded line of its patented blend of high-visibility moisture wicking and flame resistant garments. The lineup of new products, including woven and comfort mesh performance shirts, boasts moisture-wicking and fast-drying fibers that ensure workers remain cool and dry in extreme temperatures. In addition to the comfort and security provided by high-tech materials, the new line also comes in high-visibility, enhancing the safety of workers in low-visibility conditions.

"With DRIFIRE flame resistant products, we consider comfort a key component to a worker's overall performance, efficiency, and compliance. All of our products work to reduce skin irritation, skin temperature, odor, bacteria and moisture. In addition to providing workers with comfortable undergarments and uniforms for dangerous work conditions, we are also dedicated to providing permanent arc flash protection. The hi-viz line adds an extra safety component by allowing workers to stand out in high-visibility yellow, further preventing accidents on the job," says Dustin Cohn, Chief Marketing Officer of DRIFIRE.

All of DRIFIRE's patented blend of flame resistant apparel meets American National Standards Institute II and III safety requirements, ensuring that proper specifications have been met regarding the fluorescent and reflective material that allow for high visibility performance wear. With an arc rating of 12 calories per square centimeter, DRIFIRE woven shirts provide high levels of arc flash protection.

The new high-visibility line of flame resistant uniforms includes knit undergarments, comfort mesh shirts, woven shirts, coveralls, pants, jackets, vests and hooded sweatshirts. When DRIFIRE is on the job, workers can perform their duties knowing that their bodies are protected by high quality, industry-approved garments.

"We are dedicated to providing a wide range of comfortable FR wear for people in extreme temperatures and high risk conditions. By focusing on the needs and safety of the worker, as well as compliance with state and local standards and specifications, we deliver the best FR apparel solutions so workers can be extremely comfortable and have peace of mind on the job," says Cohn.

First public viewing of these garments can be seen at the National Safety Congress & Expo in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center, October 26th - October 28th. DRIFIRE is booth 1651.

DRIFIRE, a premier developer, manufacturer and marketer of comfortable flame resistant clothes, offers garments providing optimal levels of comfort, moisture management and flame resistance. DRIFIRE's superior drirelease technology, patented blend and wide product selection have helped it quickly become one of the leading retailers of performance garments today.
