Portwest MV29 Modaflame Flame Resistant Railway Overalls

The Portwest MV29 Modaflame Flame Resistant Railway Overalls are ideal for track side use, as not only are they highly visible in low-light conditions but they also protect from multiple hazards. The overalls are certified as protective against flame, heat, molten metal, harmful chemicals, electrostatic discharge and the thermal dangers of electrical arcs.

What Can the Modaflame Flame Resistant Railway Overalls Do to Help Me?

The overalls have several helpful features:

  • High-Vis: Qualifies as sufficiently high-vis for railway work and track side wear
  • Flame Resistant: Protects against radiant, convective and contact heat, as well as molten metal splashes
  • Chemical Resistance: Protects against splashes of harmful chemicals
  • Electrical Arc Protection: Shields against thermal dangers of electrical arcs
  • Functional: Texpel stain resistant finish for easy washing, radio loops for easy clipping of a radio, two-tier knee pad pockets for comfort and longevity and eight pockets for ample storage

The overalls are anti-static and inherently flame resistant thanks to the Modaflame HVO Woven fabric they are constructed from. Modaflame has been developed with advanced technology in order to provide protection in a multi-risk environment which will not diminish with washing.

Who Can Use the Portwest Flame Resistant Railway Overalls?

The Portwest Flame Resistant Overalls are ideal for track side use, as not only do they protect against molten metal, electrical arcs, fire and flame, but they are also extremely visible from long distances. The Texpel stain resistant finish will help shield the overalls from dirt and grime surrounding the tracks.
