W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Elkton, MD) has 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 and 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. 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.
