Flame resistant clothing: Workrite Uniform Company, a flame-resistant (FR) workwear manufacturer, has expanded its selection of Dickies FR products to include two additional denim pant styles, a new plaid shirt and a balaclava. These new items are now available for wear trials and/or purchase.
The new denim pant styles combine FR protection with the popular look and relaxed fit of the Dickies X-Series. The two new styles include a lightweight option featuring 1 percent Spandex for added comfort and an option with a higher arc rating that is designed for harsher work environments. Both options are built with double-stitched seams and bartacks at stress points for added durability.
The new plaid shirt is made from lightweight, 5.3-ounce GlenGuard fabric, which is solution dyed instead of piece dyed to better retain color through laundering and sun exposure. The shirt is available in two different color combinations: navy/tan and cool blue/medium gray.
Each of the two jean styles and the shirt are UL certified to NFPA 2112 and built to withstand industrial laundering.
The balaclava, made from TenCate Tecasafe Plus fabric, features a double-layer hood and a single-ply bib in the front and back. It stretches to fit the face opening under most standard hard hats.
“The Dickies FR brand combines Workrite Uniform Company’s FR clothing expertise with the decades-long heritage of Dickies workwear to deliver the protection workers need along with the look and fit they want,” said Jessie Garcia, Workrite Uniform brand leader. “We are proud to continue that tradition with these new offerings.”
In addition to these new products, the Dickies FR brand offers a variety of other FR clothing options, including coveralls, shirts, pants, outerwear and high-visibility apparel.
