What is Gas & Oil Clothing?

Why does FRSafety have a section called 'Oil and Gas Clothing'? Clothing included in this section is flame resistant AND provides flash fire protection.

A flash fire occurs during the ignition of a diffuse fuel: gas or oil. When exposed to a flash fire event, flame resistant and flash fire protective clothing does not ignite, melt, or drip and will not contribute to a potential burn injury.

A garment can be certified, or or fabric component recognized, to NFPA 2112: Standard for Flame Resistant Clothing for Industrial Personnel Against Flash Fire. This certification or recognition is proof that the clothing a worker is wearing will be protective against the hazard of flash fire in the workplace. A garment can be certified to NFPA 2112, or a component (a fabric in a multi-layer garment) recognized to NFPA 2112. An NFPA 2112 garment-certified coverall, shirt or jean is labeled as certified to NFPA 2112 with a third party logo, such as the Underwriters Laboratory "UL" logo. Test data confirming the garment's compliance is available via Underwriters Laboratories certification page. Enter the company name or "2112" in the keyword field, and click search.

  Garments that show the "Flash Fire" icon on www.FRSafety.com are always garment certified to NFPA 2112 (or in the case of rain gear, ASTM F2733). For data specific to each product, read the entire description of each product. Information on garment compliance to this flash fire standard is listed for each product.
