The Power of Layering, in the Palm of Your Hand!

Tyndale FR Layering App

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. The only way to know the true level of protection provided by the layers combined is to arc flash test that specific combination of garments.

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!

Tyndale’s new mobile layering tool is available within our new mobile app – Tyndale FRC – on your tablet or smart phone, or through your online Tyndale account*, the app works in two easy ways:

  • Items you already own: the app looks at your purchases over the last five years to find combinations of clothing you already own that can be layered together to meet a desired level of protection. No purchase necessary!
  • New items: Shopping for new FR clothing? The app identifies items from your catalog that can be layered with items you already own to provide the level of arc flash protection you need.

*The layering app not available to all accounts, ask your safety supervisor if you think this tool would be helpful to you.
