HRC 2

Return to Glossary

Garments compliant to HRC (Hazard Risk Category) 2, as defined by NFPA 70E, 2012 edition, have an arc rating that is greater than or equal to 8 cal/cm², but is less than 25 cal/cm².

HRC 2 may also be called Level 2. In some cases, incorrectly, users may refer to HRC 2 as Class 2. Class 2 applies to ANSI standards, and other standards, but not to NFPA 70E. HRC and Level are correct identifiers. To ensure correct communication of a need, use the arc rating. 

Garments compliant to HRC 2 are often referred to as daily wear. Daily wear includes, but is not limited to: knit or button front FR shirts, work pants or FR jeans and coveralls. NOTE: Not all daily wear is compliant to hazard risk category 2. Be sure to check the arc rating to confirm that the garment will provide the necessary protection.

Shop all HRC 2 clothing.
