It’s important to be correctly prepared and equipped in industries where you face particular types of hazards. One such industry is the welding industry. Inside a hot, stuffy environment, creating sparks that produce further heat and are themselves emitting Ultraviolet and infrared radiation, the necessity of effective protective workwear welding jackets is an obvious one. So before you, next search for “welding jackets near me”, consider what we and our partners have to offer those welders out there.
Usefulness of a Flame Retardant Welding Jacket
With sparks flying and heat rising, any decent flame welding jacket should be made fire-resistant and be thermally insulated to protect other clothing layers as well as the skin of the wearer from the dangers of the welding industry. Likewise, most welding jackets need to be anti-static jackets in order to protect the wearer from the sparks created by the welding process.
Getting the safety requirements correct for welding workwear is of great importance, so much so that welding workwear has its own EN ISO safety standard section, that being the EN ISO 11611 regulation. The criteria listed in this standard must be abided by for the garment in question to be officially recognised as suitable for use in the welding industry. Not only do these criteria insist on welding jackets being able to protect the wearer against splashes of molten metal, withstand short-term contact with heat, and minimise the risk of an electric shock, but also that the welding jackets in question retain these protective qualities after frequent washing, to ensure the effectiveness of the jacket lasts.
There are also those welding jackets with hi-vis elements to their design, whether that be the jacket itself being in a fluorescent colour, or there being reflective piping or strips integrated into the design. This increased visibility will help workers identify each other easily in the hazy environment which is being created by the heat and sparks that are produced by welding.
The combination of all these features means that protective welding jackets are equipped to deal with more than just the welding industry, giving them increased appeal to more workers from a variety of industries.
