Roughnecks, Wildcatters and Other Oil & Gas Workers Need Reliable FR Clothing Protection That’s Comfortable
TenCate takes your safety seriously. Any time there is a risk of a flash fire occurring, there is definitely a need for an appropriate FR solution. Industries such as petroleum drilling, refining and fracking present real dangers that could place workers in harm’s way at a moment’s notice.
According to U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, between 1997 and 2003, 16% of all fatalities occurring in the oil field were related to fire and explosion. This is a serious threat and it demands a serious solution. TenCate Protective Fabrics provides those solutions in multiple fabrics.
A flash fire is a fire that spreads rapidly through a diffused fuel such as hydrocarbon liquids or gas without the production of damaging pressure. There are numerous standards around the world that establish and provide the minimum performance and certification requirements for FR fabric and clothing. TenCate Protective Fabrics makes sure that our FR textiles meet and exceed these standards.
