DEARBORN — Carhartt, America’s premium work wear brand since 1889, launches an all-new inherently flame-resistant apparel program including a work shirt, a relaxed-fit work pant and a work coverall.
Carhartt, known worldwide as a legendary work wear brand with a history of developing rugged apparel for workers both on the job and off, together with TenCate, known across the globe as a leading innovator in FR fabrics, announced their collaboration for this premier apparel offering back in May. Carhartt’s new inherent FR program will be offered in Tencate’s Tecasafe Plus fabric in two colors and weights and is available this fall through Carhartt distributors, retailers and online.
“Through this new program, Carhartt delivers more options to our customers with an inherent FR fabric that will help keep them safe and compliant on the job in petrochemical and electric utility industries among others,” said Tom Kiddle, director of industrial sales at Carhartt. “We are very pleased with our collaboration with TenCate, and together, we are delivering the industry best-in-class FR solutions from two well-established work wear brands.”
