Glen Raven to showcase GlenGuard FR fabrics at PSC

Technical fabrics maker, Glen Raven, will feature its GlenGuard FR fabrics for industrial protective apparel at the Petroleum Safety Conference (PSC) in Banff, May 5-7, in Booth #94.

“Protective apparel is absolutely critical to a safe working environment in the petroleum industry,” says Hal Bates, marketing director for Glen Raven Technical Fabrics.“GlenGuard FR fabrics meet the most stringent safety standards plus we engineered the fabrics to be lighter weight and flexible so that protective apparel is more comfortable. Studies show that when safety apparel is comfortable, workers are more likely to wear it as specified thus reducing their risk of injury.”

GlenGuard FR is made with Kermel aramid and modacrylic fibers that are inherently flame and arc flash resistant. These special fibers give GlenGuard FR significant advantages versus other fabrics in the market. First, the protective benefits are permanent and won't wear off or wash out. Second, the fabrics are more color-fast and abrasion-resistant so garments stay looking good longer. Third, because no FR chemical finishes are needed, GlenGuard FR is more environment- and worker-friendly. In fact, GlenGuard FR fabrics have been awarded Oeko-Tex Standard 100 textile safety certification indicating that they are free from harmful levels of more than 100 hazardous substances.

GlenGuard FR fabrics exceed the strictest industrial safety standards (NFPA 70E) for thermal and body burn protection and offer the best protection-to-weight ratio available for single layer garments. GlenGuard FR is available to manufacturers of protective apparel for the petroleum, industrial, chemical, wildland fire protection, and automotive racing markets.
