Kaye Wyrick, senior merchandise manager of Wrangler’s specialty apparel, explains the features and advantages of Wrangler’s and Riggs’ FR lines:
While Wrangler is well-known for its western apparel, this iconic American denim brand provides a complete offering of flame-resistant clothing within its western and Riggs Workwear by Wrangler collections. Government reports note that the No. 1 cause of on-the-job severe or fatal burn injuries is the worker’s clothing igniting and continuing to burn.
As a responsible industry leader, Wrangler continues to serve its customers’ needs by designing garments to comply with HRC2, or Hazard Risk Category 2, and ATPD (arc thermal protective value) to meet the strict guidelines of major protection agencies, including the National Fire Protection Agency, American Society of Testing Materials International, and OSHA (Occupation Health and Safety Administration).
Wrangler FR garments are designed to self-extinguish once the source of ignition is removed, greatly reducing the severity of burn injuries and, in many cases, making the difference between life and death. This video demonstrates how FR apparel will self-extinguish upon removal of an ignition source. Wrangler FR garments offer protection workers need, while incorporating functional, durable, and comfortable features, and maintaining an appearance that’s ideal for the workplace.
All Wrangler FR products are guaranteed flame-resistant for the life of the garment. The Riggs FR collection includes jeans, work shirts, knit shirts, and jackets that are designed with comfort and durability in mind. Jeans are available in relaxed-fit and carpenter styles, with the carpenter also available in long-lasting, snag-resistant, Rip-Stop fabric.
Riggs FR garments are equipped with features for function and durability, such as flat front pockets with a pencil slot, triple-needle stitching, extra-deep 13-inch flame-resistant front pockets, and the Room2Move fit with action gussets.
Wrangler FR is available in original and relaxed-fit Cowboy Cut jeans for comfort, durability, and protection in your favorite western style. All western FR jeans feature prewashed, heavyweight broken-twill denim and authentic five-pocket style.
Also available in traditional western styling are FR work shirts, which feature authentic front and back western yokes, two snap flap pockets with the iconic “W” stitching, and three-snap cuffs.
Wrangler FR — comfort, durability, protection.
