National Safety Apparel's lightweight shirts have received an upgrade, and the all-new FR Control 2.0 garments are available now.

The first version of the FR Control shirts feature body-temperature-regulating Outlast technology, a woven-in fabric that absorbs and stores excess body heat, then releases it when outside temperatures decrease. The result is an article of clothing that actively keeps its wearer at the ideal comfort zone — all while protecting from arc flash up to 3.6 cal/cm2.

In May, the FR Control 2.0 made its debut. The newest version features a 4.0 cal/cm2 rating — high enough to reach Hazard Risk Category 1. It's also infused with Spandex, providing a stretchier and customized fit. The color has changed from khaki to navy blue. The shirt is available in long- and short-sleeve styles, and a new balaclava is available for head and neck protection. Whereas most balaclavas are stiff and hot, this head protection will be perfect for wearing under an arc flash helmet and face shield to keep the head cool.
