Lenzing FR®
Lenzing™ FR

Lenzing™ FR, a cellulose fiber from the house of Lenzing, protects against heat stress. Produced from beechwood, a natural raw material, Lenzing™ FR offers protection against heat and flame in a variety of different applications. Around the world Lenzing™ FR is produced using the Lenzing Modal® process. This ensures that the very highest fiber tenacities are obtained and makes it possible to insert the FR agent in a permanent manner.

The High Performance Fiber

Permanent heatprotection

Lenzing™ FR offers protection from all kinds of heat: fire, radiant heat, electric arcs, molten metals and flash fires. The most important goal of protective clothing is to prevent the skin from burning. After all, the skin is the body's largest and most sensitive organ.

From a technical point of view, Lenzing™ FR is a work of art. The fiber, which is made of a natural raw material, has a flame resistant substance incorporated throughout the cross-section of the fiber which ensures inherent flame protection. The protective substance cannot be removed by either washing or abrasion. Flame resistant once, flame resistant forever...

The skin - the body's most important organ

Protection from burns

People in professions involving a high level of risk from burns need to wear special protective clothing. Apart from direct fire, heat, in its different forms, represents a significant danger. Lenzing™ FR, with its incorporated flame resistant agent, protects the skin from heat like no other flame resistant high performance fiber.

More performance in extreme situations

More performance

For the wearer, Lenzing™ FR helps to achieve higher performance in extreme situations. Overheating of the body (known as heat stress) is a constant danger when working in hot and physically demanding environments. This danger is significantly reduced thanks to the excellent moisture management and breathability properties of Lenzing™ FR. The physical and mental performance of the wearer is improved if body temperature and comfort are enhanced. The unparalleled moisture management and breathability properties of Lenzing™ FR allow the body to be cooled down. This in turn reduces fatigue, muscle cramps and breathing difficulties and the onset of impaired judgement.
