12.1 Arc-Rated Woven Shirt wins OH&S 'New Product of the Year'
Nov '09
DRIFIRE, an industry leader in comfortable flame resistant workwear and performance shirts, recently won the Occupational Health & Safety 2009 "New Product of the Year" award at the annual National Safety Council Congress and Expo in Orlando, FL. Out of 40 entries, 12 winners were announced in 11 different categories, including Personal Protective Apparel, Industrial Hygiene, Online Training & Software, and Vision Protection. DRIFIRE's 7-oz., 12.1 Arc-Rated Woven Shirt won the award in the Personal Protective Apparel category.

"The DRIFIRE team is extremely honored to receive the New Product of the Year award for our 12.1 Arc-Rated Woven Shirt. We work hard to ensure that each new product we develop is made of the highest-quality materials and tested to comply with industry standards. To be recognized for our efforts and achievements by OH&S is a great honor, and we will continue striving to produce the best in protective clothing," says Rob Hines, vice president of Product Development at DRIFIRE.

The DRIFIRE 12.1 Arc-Rated Woven Shirt stood out in the category for Personal Protection not only for its ability to provide a high level of arc flash protection, but also for redefining comfort with its fast-drying and moisture-wicking features. The woven shirt boasts a stylish design that allows for complete mobility. When layered with DRIFIRE's lightweight, moisture wicking, next to skin shirts, the 12.1 Arc-Rated Woven Shirt offers ultimate protection and comfort for hard workers on the job.

"We design each of our products to fit into a thorough layering system that achieves the highest levels of protection. The award-winning woven shirt is just one component of a system that keeps workers safe, dry and comfortable all day long. Our comfortable FR shirts and pants offer moisture management, safety compliance, and flame resistant solutions for every aspect of working in high risk conditions," says Hines.

DRIFIRE's achievement will be featured in the December 2009 issue of Occupational Health & Safety magazine, which is distributed to more than 80,000 monthly subscribers.
