Glen Raven and Kermel partner to create superior protective apparel
Technical fabrics maker, Glen Raven and Kermel, a performance fibre manufacturer, joined forces to create GlenGuard FR, a flame resistant fabric for the industrial protective apparel market. GlenGuard FR fabric is designed to result in protective garments that exceed safety standards and are more comfortable, more durable, and more colour-fast than any other protective apparel available in the market. Glen Raven and Kermel spent more than two years on product development. Kermel’s unique fiber construction and Glen Raven’s fabric design expertise combined to yield a new fl ame resistant fabric that is softer and suppler, lighter weight, more color-fast, and more abrasion resistant than other fabrics on the market. GlenGuard FR fabrics exceed the strictest safety standards (NFPA 70E) for thermal and body burn protection and offer the best protection-to-weight ratio available for single layer garments.
