Beat the Summer Heat with MWG Apparel's Coolest FR Clothing

mwg aWhen you’re working hard in the summer heat, heavy flame-resistant workwear won’t cut it -- you need lightweight, breathable FR clothing that keeps you cool and dry. The best cooling FR clothing is designed with proprietary fabric blends that allow airflow for comfort, wick away moisture on hot days, and feel light and airy, even when you’re wearing layers. If the thermometer is already rising in your workplace, you can create your own cool, comfortable oasis by outfitting yourself in the right clothing without sacrificing FR protection.

Staying cool at work goes beyond comfort and extends to your safety and well-being. Heat stress, heat stroke, heat rash, and dangerous health conditions are directly related to overheating on the job. A simple update to your workwear wardrobe can help you avoid these risks during the summer.

What’s the Best Cooling FR Clothing for Summer?

From breathable FR shirts that dry quickly and breathe to cooling FR pants and barely-there base layers, it’s possible to beat the summer heat with MWG Apparel’s coolest FR clothing. Here’s a look at the premium FR clothing options to help you beat the summer heat and stay safe on the job!

Breathable FR Base Layers

If your workplace requires layered FR protection, it’s important to choose breathable base layers that don’t weigh you down or trap body heat. The expertly designed MWG FLEXSAFE™ base layer collection includes every layering essential you’ll need when it’s hot, like cooling t-shirts and boxers. Plus, every MWG Apparel base layer provides the following:

  • Inherent FR CAT 1 protection (ATPV 4.3)
  • 4-way stretch for freedom of movement
  • Moisture-wicking, cooling fabric blend
  • Breathable and odor-resistant

Since base layers sit close to the skin, they have an important job as part of your summer workwear wardrobe. Don’t choose options that trap heat and sweat. Instead, opt for the lightweight, moisture-wicking power of MWG FLEXSAFE™ base layers.
