FR WORKWEAR JUST GOT A LOT MORE FUNCTIONAL
Blaklader introduces new FR work pants
SARASOTA, Florida – April 27, 2015 – Blaklader has developed FR workpants that have contractors rethinking workwear. The1636 FR pants are tested and compliant with NFPA 70E and are HRC 2 with an 11.7 calories/cm2 arc rating. Professionals are not only protected from arc flash exposure; the inclusion of built-in kneepads and exterior tool pockets provide added protection throughout the day while saving time and trips to the toolbox.
Since 1959, Blaklader has been using high-quality fabrics and durable materials to produce quality workwear for all types of tradesmen. The 1636 pants are Blaklader's first step into US approved FR products. Electricians and other tradesmen exposed to arc flash can now have workwear that meets the ASTM FR certifications with the functionality and durability of the Blaklader brand. Blaklader garments are designed to last longer and withstand more washes than the average garment. The durability and functionality of Blaklader sets this workwear apart from other workwear.
Core features of Blaklader workwear include:
- Two exterior utility pockets for tools and fasteners which can be hidden when not in use
- Reinforced fabric in high-wear areas
- Bellowed front and back pockets for easy tool carrying
- Pencil pocket and secure wallet pocket
- Raised hammer loop
- Reinforced ruler pocket
- Quality YKK zipper
- Mobile phone pocket
- Triple stitching on all major seams
