North announces a new line of arc flash and flame resistant apparel*


Coveralls with FR retro reflective stripes

Montreal 2007 The North apparel line incorporates the new arc flash technology with the high-performing Aramid fiber, providing the best protection available today. This material is the lightest NFPA 70E hazard risk category (HRC) 2 in use today and is also soft and flexible, so that the worker is more comfortable and less fatigued during a shift.

It is a dual risk material because it provides arc flash and flash fire protection in one garment. The user is always assured of top performance even after laundering. Thermal mannequin testing is done by the University of Alberta for our needs in Canada.

Coveralls, shirts and pants are available with FR retro reflective stripes for applications where hi-viz clothing must be worn and FR personalization is available as well.

*It meets standards; NFPA 2112, NFPA 70E, CGSB 155.20, CGSB 155.22 & UL
