Carrington heads to Dubai to exhibit award-winning range of flame retardant fabrics
Carrington Textiles is to exhibit a range of ground-breaking flame retardant products at the Intersec Expo in Dubai. The event, taking place at the International Convention and Exhibition Centre, showcases the latest products and innovations in the security, safety and fire protection market.
Europe’s leading producer of flame retardant (FR) fabrics, Carrington will be exhibiting two of the latest additions to its award-winning FR range at the event – Flameban Max 310 and Flamestat Satin 225. They will be featured alongside Carrington’s general workwear range.
Flameban Max 310 is a breakthrough protective fabric that possesses both hi-vis and FR qualities – while remaining lightweight, durable and capable of undergoing high-temperature industrial laundry washing. It is also the only flame retardant fabric to meet Network Rail standards for both weight and hi-vis protection. Flameban’s multi-norm properties are providing a level of comfort and safety in the workwear market, previously only seen with aramid-only fabrics.
The Flameban Max 310 won best Protective Textile at the 2017 Future Textile Awards.
Flamestat Satin 225 is a multifunctional flame retardant workwear fabric designed to meet today’s increasing multipurpose garment requirements. It is a lighter, stronger fabric certified to all relevant flame retardant, antistatic, chemical splash and high visibility requirements.
Richard Cumpstey, Export Sales Executive at Carrington Textiles said: ‘‘Today’s workers, be they railway operatives, oil riggers or firefighters, face multiple demands that vary from industry to industry. As such, they need versatile garments that can do more. This means fabrics must offer essential protection for hazardous environments, but still be lightweight and durable. If they are waterproof they must also be breathable and comfortable. Providing protection without compromise is what Carrington’s FR range sets out to achieve.
“Intersec has a reputation for fostering innovation and we’re thrilled to return and join the conversation as we look at ‘where’s next’ for the safety and fire protection market.’’
Carrington will be exhibiting in Hall 08, Stand D12 at Intersec, taking place from the 21st-23rd January in Dubai.
