Carhartt Flame-Resistant – Many Different Styles For the Fit You’re Looking For

If you are finding that Carhartt’s insulated flame-resistant jackets and bib overalls are getting too warm on the job site, you are in luck with Carhartt’s new releases in its spring line for flame-resistant clothing. They have taken the incredible quality customers know and love and have created some new pants and shirts to give the customer that fit that they desire. For a long time Carhartt’s flame-resistant line has consisted of a limited number of color swatches. Their ongoing effort to revolutionize and enhance their products is leaving customers excited for each new release in the spring and in the fall.

Carhartt’s pants are known for their heavyweight-feeling and durability and this spring they have introduced some lighter-weight pants to keep you more comfortable on those hot summer days. Their FR Twill Work Pant (FRB002) is a 9 oz. twill work pant that is very simple in terms of pockets. This is one of the spring products that Carhartt is labeling as their twill line before more is released in June. The Loose-Fit Midweight Canvas Jean (FRB159) is the flame-resistant equivalent to the B159. With a few additional pockets, hammer loop, and being available in moss this pant will be very appealing for the workers looking for a loose-fitting light summer pant. If you are looking for a cargo pant, the FRB240, FR Canvas Cargo Pant is what you need to pick up. This cargo pant is made with 8.5 oz FR canvas giving you a lighter weight fabric for enhanced comfort on hot days.

The most commonly worn shirt by workers required to wear flame-resistant clothing is the FRS160 Twill Shirt with Pocket Flaps. This 7-ounce shirt is a collared shirt that many workers find very comfortable but also looks very professional. The lightweight Twill Tradesman shirt (FRS159) and Chambray shirt (FRS191) are two other commonly worn flame-resistant clothing as well. New this year, Carhartt developed a short-sleeve flame-resistant t-shirt (FRK087) to be worn under other pieces of flame-resistant clothing for additional protection. This knit shirt joins the long-sleeve Henley (FRK293), long-sleeve t-shirt (FRK294), and long-sleeve mock turtleneck (FRK295) if you are looking for that traditional t-shirt feeling flame-resistant shirt. Note, the knit shirts typically offer a lower ATPV and HRC rating, but can be increased with proper layering of flame-resistant clothing.

The other two additions they made to the Flame-Resistant line were the Twill Coverall (FRX010) and the Lanyard Access Jacket (FRJ003). The Twill Coverall is an unlined full coverall that is a one-piece solution to meeting many of OSHA regulations. Many people find coveralls uncomfortable when wide range of motion during their job. The Lanyard Access Jacket is a great jacket for workers that require wearing some type of harness. Its flapped opening in the back admits a lanyard for attachment to a safety harness. Another nice feature of this jacket is the generous storage that the front pockets give you. Although it is lined and not ideal for warm weather, it will be a great jacket once those cold temperatures return which most people hope doesn’t happen for awhile.
