GloWear Hi-Vis 8356FR Vests

St. Paul, Minn. (January 18, 2011) Ergodyne today announced the addition of the GloWear® 8356FRHL Class 3 Flame Resistant Modacrylic Vest. This Class 3 vest employs 3M Scotchlite 8935 FR reflective material for superior on-the-job visibility and ASTM F1506-certified modacrylic mesh fabric for the highest degree of FR protection.

Traditional hi-vis modacrylic fabrics tend to be solid and heavy. Ergodyne’s GloWear® 8356FRHL Vest delivers ANSI compliance and FR protection using a patented modacrylic mesh fabric that is both lightweight and breathable. The vest uses this same fabric for the binding resulting for the ultimate in F1506 compliance.

“The GloWear® 8356FRHL Class 3 FR Vest builds on the success of the GloWear® 8260 Class 2 version,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO. “With the needs for inherent FR and hi-visibility continuing to intersect, the 8356FRHL now offers ANSI Class 3 compliance in a vest appropriate for NFPA 70E applications.”

Many workers in need of FR protection are also wearing fall protection. The GloWear® 8356FRHL Vest provides D-ring access for at-heights safety and convenience. Other features include an FR hook & loop closure and easily accessible two inside pockets for storage.

The GloWear® 8356FRHL Vest is available February at authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information, visit, email or call 800-225-8238 // (651) 642-9889.
