Portwest FR71 Orange High-Vis Anti-Static FR Vest

Electrostatic discharge is a ubiquitous hazard in industrial environments, and the Portwest FR71 Orange High-Vis Anti-Static FR Vest offers ample protection from this risk. The vest also meets three separate high visibility standards, qualifying it for use during railway work, and can effectively shield you from limited exposure to heat or flames.

What Can the Orange High-Vis Anti-Static FR Vest Do for Me?

The vest has several helpful features:

  • Anti-Static: Carbon fibre woven into the material of the vest means it will protect the wearer from electrostatic discharge in the case of an explosion
  • Flame Resistant: Limited exposure to flames will not damage the vest or the wearer
  • High-Vis: The 5cm wide reflective stripes and bright orange colour qualify the vest as suitably high-vis for railway work
  • Comfortable: A lightweight design means the vest is ideal for working in warm temperatures 

The vest is made from the versatile and hard-wearing flame resistant material, Bizflame.

Is the Portwest High-Vis Anti-Static Vest Available in Any Other Colours?

Yes, the Portwest vest is also available in Yellow.

Who Can Use the Portwest FR Vest?

Due to the lightweight design, reflective taping and bright orange colour the vest is highly suitable for strenuous outdoor railway work. The vest also features anti-static and flame resistant properties, making it a good choice for environments like petrochemical refineries where there is a risk of electrostatic discharge in the case of an explosion.
