Flame Resistant Clothing

NewsClick to Zoom

Recent data relating to the horrible aftermath of workplace burns shows that most fatalities are due to infection caused by burnt clothing.  In fact a high percentage of those burns could have been survivable if flame resistant clothing was worn.  Very soon all workplace hazards involving exposure to electrical arc flash and flame ignition will require flame resistant clothing to be worn.

SafetyQuip has recently introduced a new Banwear range of flame resistant shirts, trousers and overalls from Elliott – all available in Day and Day/Night HI VIS colours. Banwear® is one of the only commercially available shirting fabrics that can meet the NFPA70E ‘Electric Arch Exposure’ hazard risk categories 0, 1 & 2 as a single layer.

SafetyQuip is Australia's only significant franchised player in full scope Workplace Safety Products & Services – a multi-billion dollar market. We are actively looking for the right people to establish locally owned and operated SafetyQuip franchise businesses in Sydney, Mackay, Townsville/Cairns, Rockhampton, Tasmania, South Adelaide, South Perth, Canberra and New Zealand.
