NFPA 2112 : Flash Fire Protection Standards

What is NFPA 2112?

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) strives to reduce worldwide burden of fire hazards by educating people on fire prevention and providing standards for personal flash fire protection.  One such safety code is the “NFPA 2112: Standard on Flame Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel Against Flash Fire.”

NFPA 2112 provides informative guidelines for specialized flash fire resistant clothing. FRC protects workers in hazardous industrial occupations where a flash fire (a sudden, intense fire which is short in duration but severe in potential danger) is always a risk.  NFPA 2112 states, “The standard shall specify the minimum requirements and test methods for flame-resistant fabrics and components and the design and certification requirements for garments for use in areas at risk from flash fires.”

All flash fire clothing wishing to comply with NFPA 2112 must meet the following criteria:
  • All flame resistant clothing items must achieve a 50% or less predicted body burn
  • All flame resistant clothing items must defy melting, dripping, or after-flame burning
  • All flame resistant clothing items must have appropriate labeling in an easy-to-see location
  • All flame resistant clothing items must meet each of the NFPA 2112 requirements and tests, and should be UL certified
    • The UL certification label should either be attached to the flame resistant garment label, or be positioned right next to it
While this list may seem daunting, FRSafety is here to make compliance as easy as possible.
