NFPA 2112 - Flash Fire
NFPA 2112 Standard on Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel Against Flash Fire, is a commonly used standard specification for the evaluation of flame resistant clothing. In the most recent edition of NFPA 2112, gloves and shrouds, hoods, and balaclavas were included; certification programs for these products are available. The standard is cited by OSHA for those drilling in the oil and gas industry.
Third-party certification (testing and audits by an ISO 17065 body) is required to label compliance with NFPA 2112. ArcWear partners with SEI to offer third-party certification for garment manufacturers.
Our team is pleased to assist with NFPA 2112 evaluations and R&D testing before the final certification process. When using FlashCert by ArcWear, our test data is typically accepted by SEI for up to one year.
