Your Flame-Resistant Clothing for Safe Working!

In many workplaces, wearing clothing specially designed to protect you from specific hazards is essential. This is especially true for petrochemical, metallurgical and gas workers, who have to perform more tasks involving combustion hazards.

To meet this need, many companies like Codet have put their expertise at the service of these workers by designing high-quality flame-retardant garments. 

Big Bill, a Codet company, specializes in this type of high-performance garment. With over 75 years of expertise and 350 employees, Big Bill stands out from the competition for the quality and comfort of its garments.

After all, their original mission is to produce quality clothing here without sacrificing comfort.

How does flame-retardant workwear work?

When flame-retardant garments come into contact with a source of combustion, they will normally catch fire. However, the materials with which it is made will limit flame dispersion. 

The fire will almost automatically extinguish itself.

To find out more, read Big Bill's best practices for flame-resistant workwear.

*A normal fabric would continue to burn until it was all consumed by flames or the fire was extinguished, increasing the risk of burns.
