When working around risks such as arc flashes, hot metals, and radiant heat, you will need to protect yourself with flame retardant (FR) and arc protection PPE.

But when choosing your FR clothing, it’s important to understand the difference between treated and inherent FR. And we’re here to help with a handy infographic guide on what you need to know.


Which PPE should you choose?

This can greatly vary by industry and user and there is no simple answer to this question. The guide above lets you know the pros and cons between inherent and treated FR, but we believe it’s vital you get expert advice from an accredited supplier if you want to be sure you’re staying safe.
