Lakeland Industries Inc. has introduced a new line of FR protective apparel with enhanced, industry-leading moisture-wicking technology designed specifically for electrical utility workers. Incorporating a 55/45 high-performance FR blend and 3M Scotchlite segmented reflective trim for high-visibility options, the apparel line is NFPA 70E and NFPA 2112 UL certified with a lightweight, high-performance design. The new line protects utility workers by absorbing moisture seven times faster than traditional FR cotton; moves an average 50 percent more moisture to the exterior of the fabric, creating a drier zone next to the skin; and maintains moisture movement capabilities at a rate five times faster than other brands.
Designed by linemen for linemen, Lakeland’s new FR high-performance apparel line combines superior moisture-wicking fibers, style and functionality in addition to these key features: a 55/45 blend (data shows this is the best blend for moisture-wicking and transport); tag-free back collar; seamless underarm gussets designed to eliminate seam pull and shirt rise; and flat-seam construction with contrast design.
Lakeland is providing further assistance for electrical utility workers with a Lineman Safety & Performance Guide. The free guide will help men and women learn how to climb stronger, work more safely, and select and layer FR apparel to optimize job performance.
