LAPCO Adds Flame Resistant Hoodie to Product Line-up

October 30, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Just as fall temperatures begin to drop, FR clothing manufacturer LAPCO has stepped in to provide the perfect flame resistant outerwear for those days that are too chilly for short sleeves but still too warm for winter jackets.

LAPCO's flame resistant hoodie, made from Carolina Performance FR (14.25-oz. 55% modacrylic and 45% cotton), features a drawstring hood closure, a kangaroo-style front pouch pocket, and rib knit cuffs and waistband.

All fabric is guaranteed flame resistant for the life of the hoodie. As with all LAPCO's FR garments, a LAPCO flame resistant tag is visible on every hoodie.

These flame resistant hoodies can help protect workers from electric arc and flash fires, which can cause severe burns, as well as on-the-job accidents and injuries. The hoodies are compliant with:

- ATPV 25.1 cal/cm2
- HRC 3
- NFPA 70E
- ASTM F1506

Louisiana-based LAPCO manufactures and distributes flame resistant clothing, including coveralls, pants and shirts and welding jackets. For more information on their new flame resistant hoodie, visit the company's website at
