Have you stocked up on your lightweight FRC for summer? 

Summer temperatures have already arrived in some areas of the country, signaling it’s time to order your lightweight arc-rated and flame resistant (AR / FR) clothing early. Aside from making sure you’re weather-ready for those random extra warm spring days, beating the rush of summer orders is important for many reasons:

  1. When warm temperatures start to arrive, we see a surge of orders for lightweight garments. This means inventory levels can change rapidly, especially if you’re looking to order a popular product or require a popular size.
  2. Ever-changing and unexpected weather patterns mean you might need access to garments best fit for summer, even in early spring. Make sure you’re ready for roller-coaster temperatures by ordering early!
  3. If you need to exchange an item for some reason, you’ll need to factor in a few days to process the return and receive your replacement garment. By ordering ahead of time, you’re allowing time for the unexpected.

No matter what season, ordering proactively ensures your items are in your hands before you need them.
