Flame-resistant jeans from Carhartt

frc2_smallCintas Corporation, a North American uniform supplier, has added the Carhartt Flame Resistant Jean to its exclusive line of Carhartt Rental Workwear. The new product was prompted by the success of the Carhartt Rental Workwear line and the increased demand for flame-resistant clothing.

The Carhartt FR Jean is a Hazard Risk Category 2 garment made with
14.75-ounce, 100 per cent flame-resistant cotton denim. It features a relaxed
fit and leg openings that fit over work boots for added comfort.

“Cintas provides a one-stop-shop for all flame resistant and personal
protective equipment needs,” says Brad Heizman, national director of garment strategy for Cintas. “We are the largest industrial
provider of FRC managed programs in North America, as well as the only
company in the industry to offer Carhartt FR Rental Workwear.”

The Carhartt FR Jean combines the durability, quality and comfort of the
Carhartt brand with Cintas’ high service standards and the benefits of a
rental program. When it comes to FRC, professionally managed rental
programs are particularly important because of the specialized
laundering process helps maintain the garments’ level of protection for
the wearer.


“We are very pleased with our relationship with Cintas and the success
of the Carhartt Rental Workwear line,” says Rick Fecowicz, director of
Carhartt Licensing. “The step into flame resistant rental products is a
natural one, and we are excited about the opportunity the Carhartt FR
Jean will present.”

Cintas Corporation also provides personal protective equipment such as
face shields and balaclavas, voltage tools, task wear and more.

The Carhartt Rental Workwear line launched in 2010 as part of an
exclusive partnership between Cintas Corporation and Carhartt, which was
founded in 1889 and is a global manufacturer of premium rugged apparel.
The line also includes a work shirt available in blue and sandstone, a carpenter jean, a five-pocket work jean, a dungaree pant available in navy
and duck brown, and the Carhartt Rental Active Jacket available in Carhartt Brown.
