W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. introduced high-visibility orange and high-visibility yellow options to its new line of GORE® FR Apparel products – performance FR outerwear garments that offer an ideal balance of protection, comfort and durability for oil & gas workers in physically demanding and extreme environmental conditions. The new high-visibility yellow and high-visibility orange garments meet or exceed ANSI 107-15 Type R, Class 2 and CSA Z96-15, Class 2, Level 2. The full jacket and bib ensemble in hi-vis yellow or orange achieves ANSI 107-15 Type R, Class 3 and CSA Z96-15, Class 3, Level 2.
"Adding high-visibility offerings to the GORE® FR Apparel portfolio brings an additional element of safety to what is already a best-in-class line of protective outerwear," said Sean McDearmon, sales leader for GORE® FR Apparel. "Our products continue to ensure worker safety and comfort by enhancing visibility, increasing range of motion, minimizing bulk, and reducing the effects of moisture build-up across a wide range of environmental conditions and varying work rates."
Made with GORE-TEX® PYRAD® fabric, this waterproof, windproof, breathable line of products provides an optimum combination of protection against flash-fire, petroleum, oil-based hazards, and hot liquids/steam without sacrificing comfort in a lightweight, low-bulk form.
Leveraging the same platform as GORE-TEX® Fabric and utilizing Gore's proprietary PYRAD® Fabric Technology, GORE® FR Apparel complies to ASTM F2733-09 and ASTM F1891-12.
