These days, everything – news, weather, social media, shopping, and more – is available at your fingertips by using your mobile device. So, why not your flame resistant (FR) clothing? Tyndale recently launched our mobile app – Tyndale FRC – from which you can quickly and easily shop your company’s managed clothing program, access layering data, and read our industry-leading blog.
Shop Now (Managed Clothing Program)
Always on the go? Instead of waiting until you have access to a desktop computer, now you can log in to your company’s managed clothing program via the app, using your mobile phone or tablet. Conveniently browse your company’s custom catalog and place orders for approved items using your allowance or allotment from anywhere. Ordering new or replacement items when you think of it, rather than waiting until you’re in the office, just got easier!
But remember: convenience should never come before your safety or the safety of those around you. Ensure you are only accessing the app when you’re off the job or on break.
Arc Flash Layering Tool
Tyndale is gradually rolling out our layering data feature for customers who have items in their program that have been layer tested according to ASTM F1959, giving you the ability to select a target ATPV rating and filter on products tested that meet or exceed the target ATPV. There’s also the option to go beyond the catalog and filter on products in your closet – already purchased – to achieve a target ATPV. This allows you to make more informed purchases.
Confused about layering? Our frequently asked questions page explains that wearing clothes in layers – for example, a sweatshirt over a henley – oftentimes provides additional protection to the wearer. What does this mean? Wearing two layers of FR clothing together may provide more protection than is provided by the sum of the arc ratings. However, there are documented situations where the value of layered combinations actually tested lower than the additive value, so be aware! To validate any additional protection achieved through layering, arc testing according to ASTM F1959 must be performed. Tyndale’s Layering App accesses our enormous database of layering test data, offering you the information you need to make sure you’re fully protected against the hazard that’s present.
