Carhartt Apparel Line Reduces Burn Trauma and Saves Lives


The Working Person’s Store expands offering of flame resistant Carhartt Jeans, Overalls, Jackets and Coats for workers in heavy industry across America

Lakeville, Indiana -- February 5, 2006 -- The Working Person’s Store ( announced the availability of a new line of Carhartt Flame Resistant Clothing (“FRC”), designed to limit the potential for extensive burn damage to a person’s body after the source of flame ignition has been removed. Flame resistant clothing has become especially important to the safety of workers serving the electrical, utility, oil, gas and petrochemical industries, where workers have traditionally relied upon cotton and wool fibers that can ignite if exposed to electrical arcs or flash fires, with potentially severe injury and death as a result.

The new Carhartt FRC line includes jeans, jackets, overalls and coats constructed of flame resistant fabric materials impregnated with fire retardant that helps to extinguish flames and preserve the integrity of the garment. Carhartt FRC meets the stringent requirements of ASTM F1506-02ae1, NFPA-70E and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.269. In addition, Carhartt FRC is guaranteed to be flame resistant for the useful life of each garment.

“We taken a keen interest in expanding our product lines in such a way to provide high quality Carhartt outerwear and work wear products that meet the needs of major industrial customers seeking durable, fire resistant apparel for their employees”, said Eric Deniger, President of The Working Person’s Store.
