Don’t Wait to Order Outerwear – The Time is Now!
With so many uncertainties in our world right now, a new mindset of preparedness has emerged. People are doing their best to be ready for whatever the future holds. One way to do that is by purchasing arc rated flame resistant (AR / FR) outerwear and/or layering garments now – even before temperatures change. It is particularly important to order your outerwear early this year because of supply chain challenges due to COVID-19. Listen to Scott Margolin, Tyndale's VP of Technical, and get ahead of the game, before the styles you want are no longer in stock:
Tyndale offers a variety of outerwear styles from our own line of Made in USA garments and garments from other leading suppliers. Tyndale has outerwear on the shelves! Retail customers, check out the in-stock items below by clicking “View Details.” Or, if you’re in a Tyndale managed program or TyndaleFRC Express program, log into your account and shop outerwear! Please note, styles shown below may not be available in your company’s custom catalog.
Layering AR / FR Garments
Just not ready to fully winterize? We get it, but you should at least be thinking about layering and how to layer safely. As seasons transition, so should your clothing. Be sure to use all three layers of your FRC system – the base layer, inner layer, outer layer, and waterproof layer – to your advantage! Keep in mind:
If you’re thinking about layering AR / 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. Tyndale has one of the largest collections of layered arc flash testing data in the industry and offers a state of the art layering app. If you’re interested in learning more about our layering app, read our blog post. Please note, the layering app not available to all accounts, ask your safety supervisor if you think this tool would be helpful to you.
If you’re not currently in a Tyndale managed program but you’re interested in learning more, visit our website and contact the National Sales Executive in your area to start the conversation. We look forward to hearing how we can improve your current program.
