Where to Buy the Best Fireproof Clothing

If you are a purchasing manager in an industry that uses fireproof clothing, you may be searching for a new supplier. Whether you are looking to save money, find a better product, or work with a more reliable vendor, you need to weigh your options carefully. CarbonX has been manufacturing FR clothing for more than 20 years, providing protection to workers in many industries, including gas and oil, steel and welding, fire safety, motorsports, pulp and paper, utilities, and those participating in tactical maneuvers.

Where NOT to Buy Fireproof Clothing

Every business has a budget, and it makes sense to stick to it whenever possible. However, as a purchaser, if you come across a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Of all the mistakes you can make when purchasing new products, one of the worst is buying substandard safety equipment such as FR gear.

While “fire retardant” clothing is sold at big box stores such as Walmart and Home Depot, you may not be surprised to learn that this is not the optimal place to purchase fireproof PPE.

According to ChemicalSafetyFacts.org, a website run by the American Chemistry Council, the term “fire retardant” has no specific definition outside of slowing the spread of fire. There are hundreds of chemicals being used today to create fire retardant clothing, and they can be used in varying amounts.

Moreover, there have been many changes in recent years to the types of chemicals that are allowed to be used in fire retardants, since some are now considered toxic.

When you’re purchasing fireproof clothing, the only way to be sure that it’s safe for wearers is to read the labels and trust the reputation of the manufacturer you are buying it from.
