Combining light weight, moisture wicking technology and best in class breathability - TECGEN SELECT® brand flame resistant garments are changing the way every day wearers perceive Personal Protective Equipment. TECGEN SELECT® garments protect you from radiant heat, electric arc fires and flash fires, just like bulkier clothing. Only it isn't bulky. In fact, it's downright comfortable and stays that way even as the heat rises, because the patented fiber actually wicks moisture from your skin, where it quickly evaporates keeping you cool.
Customers agree - TECGEN SELECT® garments are comfortable. Parent company, Ashburn Hill Corp., has conducted over 100 wear tests. TECGEN SELECT® garments are preferred 2:1 over legacy FR fabrics. TECGEN SELECT® U.S. made fabric utilizes patented TECGEN® fiber to provide a foundation for comfort and protection. Introduced in May 2010, TECGEN SELECT® was awarded 2010 New Product of The Year by OH&S Magazine.
Workplace safety in the United States is evolving. Increased awareness and implementation of NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace® is helping reduce and prevent workplace injury. Hundreds of deaths and thousands of disabling injuries still occur each year due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast. Most could be prevented through NFPA 70E compliance.
The 2012 NFPA 70E responds to the challenges, making it easier to ensure an electrically safe working area and compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S, and OSHA 1926 Subpart K.
Thousands of every day wearers of Flame Resistant protective apparel complain about the comfort level of their flame resistant protective apparel. FR apparel does NOT need to be uncomfortable and hot. TECGEN SELECT® brand FR garments achieve increased levels of arc flash protection with lighter weight, moisture wicking, breathable fabrics.
