Portwest FR12 Modaflame Anti-Static Flame Resistant Sweatshirt

The Portwest FR12 Modaflame Anti-Static Flame Resistant Sweatshirt is ideal for those who work in a hazardous environment where they are often exposed to heat, and yet wish to maintain a professional and understated appearance. The sweatshirt offers protection from radiant, convective and contact heat, but the ribbed hem and cuffs and smart aesthetic makes it ideal for corporate settings.

What Can the Modaflame Anti-Static Sweatshirt Do for Me?

The jumper has several helpful features:

  • Flame Resistant: The jumper offers inherent protection against radiant, convective and contact heat, and the ribbed cuff is flame resistant for added safety
  • Multi-Hazard: The long sleeve shirt is also certified as shielding against electrostatic discharge and the thermal effects of an electrical arc
  • Comfortable: The high-cotton content fabric is soft to the touch, and the ribbed hem and cuffs ensure a comfortable fit
  • Mobility: The loose raglan sleeves make the sweatshirt easy to move around in

The sweatshirt is made from the modacrylic fabric, Modaflame, which possesses an inherent flame resistance which will not diminish with washing. The carbon fibre woven into the fabric confers the jumper its anti-static properties.

Who Can Use the Portwest Flame Resistant Sweatshirt?

The Portwest Modaflame Sweatshirt is ideal for workers exposed to heat in their working environment. For example, the sweatshirt is suitable for the fuel distribution industry and the offshore industry. The jumper retains a professional appearance with a smart round neck and ribbed collar and cuffs.

What Do These Certifications Mean?

  • EN 11612: This standard determines whether a garment offers protection against heat and flames, and whether this protection extends to convective, radiant or contact heat
  • EN 1149-5: This standard demonstrates whether a garment protects against electrostatic discharge in environments such as petrochemical refineries where there is a risk of explosion
  • IEC 61482: This standard indicates the garment's ability to provide protection against the thermal hazards of an electrical arc
  • ASTM F1959: This standard determines the arc rating of a garment, which is the amount of energy needed to pass through the fabric to cause a second or third degree burn

The jumper is certified as providing sufficient protection against convective, radiant and contact heat. This protection will not diminish with washing. The sweatshirt also shields the wearer from the thermal hazards of an electrical arc or electrostatic discharge.
