FR WELDING HOOD
NAPE AND HEAD PROTECTOR FOR WELDING WORKS
Texfire’s flame retardant hood provides direct protection in front of incandescent projections coming from welding or cutting works. Tailored with MARKO® inherent flame retardant fabric, made by MARINA TEXTIL, it is a multistandard fabric designed to protect from fire (EN 11612), welding (EN 11611) and static electricity (EN 1149). The complements, like the thread in the seams, or the trimmings, are also flame retardant. Another feature of this fabric is that it absorbs sweat and eases its evaporation, increasing transpiration and providing an extra sensation of comfort to the welder.
This flame retardant hood has been developed especially for operators that work in environments with risk of splashes or impacts of incandescent projections, preventing the operator from possible burns.
