GloWear® 8260FRHL Hi-Vis Vests

St. Paul, Minn. (February 2, 2010) – Ergodyne today announced the expansion of its GloWear® Hi-Vis apparel line to include the 8260FRHL Class 2 fire resistant (FR) modacrylic vest.

The 8260 FRHL vest uses a patented modacrylic fabric that is both ASTM F1506 and ANSI 107 certified. This ensures the vest will not melt or drip and that it meets NFPA 70E requirements. While hi-vis modacrylics can be solid, confining fabrics, the, patented mesh used in the 8260FRHL provides best-in-class hi-vis and FR protection along with light weight and breathability for worker comfort and productivity.

The 8260FRHL is ideal for anyone who requires visibility and the protection of FR. Typical users include utility, electrical, oil & gas, port, road construction, and railway workers. In many instances, workers who need FR protection need fall protection as well. The 8260FRHL’s hook & loop closure and easy D-ring access allow workers to wear the vest over fall protection harnesses for superior safety on the job.

“The 8260FRHL is a natural addition to the GloWear® line-up,” said Tom Votel, CEO and president of Ergodyne. “As hi-vis apparel is required in more and more applications, we are excited to offer an ANSI 107-compliant solution that also fits NFPA 70E applications.” For more information, visit, email or call 800-225-8238 // (651) 642-9889.
