Fire retardant waistcoats and vests are garments designed to protect workers from the risk of fire and flames. They are typically made from special materials that are designed to resist burning or melting in high heat environments, such as those found in welding, foundry or other industrial settings.
Fire retardant waistcoats and vests come in a range of styles, from high-visibility fluorescent vests for outdoor use, to more traditional waistcoats for indoor applications. They are often fitted with reflective strips to improve visibility in low-light conditions and may feature additional pockets for storing tools or other equipment.
It is important to choose the correct type of fire retardant waistcoat or vest for the specific job or environment to ensure maximum protection and safety for workers.
