New range of inherent Flame Resistant Coveralls, Nomex and Multi-Norm flame-retardant coveralls will be on show at Sicur 2012 for the very first time. Portwest AraFlame and Modaflame are two new fabrics we have developed and are exclusive to our company. Each provides excellent protection against flame, welding and electric arc and is anti-static. Manufactured specifically for the on-shore and offshore oil and gas industries, these garments come fully certified and combine the best in functional design with leading edge technical fabrics.

Alongside the inherent FR clothing we have the lightweight BizFlame anti-static FR21 and FR28 coveralls. The fabric is designed for use in hot climates and has weight options of 210g (6oz), 280g (8oz) or even padded versions for winter time

After almost two-years in development and after multiple wearer trials on oil rigs in the North Sea and Africa, we will launch the new Portwest range of premium safety footwear at Sicur 2012. Using only the finest materials and components and focusing on safety performance comfort and stability, the FD01 and FD02 are at the fore-front of modern technology. Both styles incorporate Green Diamond Technology for extreme anti-slip properties, have a composite toecap and midsole, S3 E-leather, are fully waterproof and soles can resist temperatures up to 300 degrees.
