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 fires are a significant occupational hazard in many industries such as the oil and gas industry, as well as manufacturing industries that generate combustible dust particulates through their ordinary course of work. Only a few seconds can make the difference between life and death. 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 comprehensive range of UL Classified products conforming to NFPA 2112.
