A flash fire is a sudden, intense fire caused by ignition of a mixture of air and a dispersed flammable substance such as a solid (including dust), flammable or combustible liquid (such as an aerosol or fine mist), or a flammable gas. It is characterized by high temperature, short duration, and a rapidly moving flame front.

Flash fire is particularly dangerous in enclosed spaces, as even a relatively small fire can consume enough oxygen and produce enough smoke to cause death of the persons present, whether by suffocation or by smoke inhalation. Protective clothing made of flame-resistant materials reduces or prevents thermal injury in the body areas that are covered by the flame-resistant material.

We offer a range of fabric and garment design options for Flash Fire Protection:
