Walls FR

Walls FR® materials incorporate patented flame resistant technology developed specifically to leverage the durability and endothermic properties of nylon for long wear life and improved flame protection. Walls FR® has changed the way people think about protective clothing, delivering comfort, protection and wear life never before thought possible in a single fabric. In fact, Walls FR® fabrics deliver the best protection combined with the lowest cost per wearing in the industry. Walls FR® now has added softness that delivers the full potential of cotton comfort.


Flame resistance is guaranteed for the life of the garment!


Walls FR® fabrics provide flame resistance that is guaranteed for the life of the garment without sacrificing the soft breathable comfort of cotton. The Walls FR® fabric is a blend of 88% cotton, with 12% high-tenacity nylon which provides extra garment durability.


Walls FR® is one of the only commercially available garment fabrics that can meet the NFPA70E Electric Arc Exposure Hazard Risk Categories 0, 1 & 2 as a single layer.





Walls FR® fabrics have Oeko-Tex Class II Certification.Fabrics tested according to the criteria for the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 guarantee that no substance is present which might be harmful to human health. Only products who comply with the very stringent requirements and who are constantly tested are awarded the Oeko-Tex certificate.







The Proban chemical is used to inpart a durable flame retardant treatment to cotton and other cellulosic fibres and blends. Durability is achieved by the formation of a cross-linked inert polymer within the fibre. Because there is no chemical reaction with the fibre, the physical properties of the base fabrics are largely unaffected.


The Proban process is used only by textile finishers licensed by Rhodia Limited and is usually applied to bulk fabrics before making up. The process is equally successful when applied to woven or knitted fabrics which may have a wide variety of weights and constructions.
