If you’re thinking about layering arc-rated flame resistant (FR) garments to achieve a desired level of arc flash protection, please remember – it’s not safe to simply add the arc ratings together.

Good news! Tyndale has one of the largest collections of layered arc flash testing data in the industry. Even better news – we’re putting it into the palm of your hand with our new layering app!
