Neese is a respected name in the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) industry. If you’ve searched for quality rain gear and FR apparel, then you’ve more than likely heard that name. Now, Neese is hoping to broaden their horizons and reach tons of new customers with Radians.
As of May 22nd, 2018 Neese joined the Radians family of trusted brands. Bill England, president of Radians, had a few words about the new partnership. “Purchasing Neese allows us to combine strengths and offer innovative products to our customers.”
The Meaning of FR
Then you may be asking, what does FR stand for? And what does the partnership between Neese and Radians mean for you? First, let’s start with this question: the meaning of FR. After that, we’ll talk about how this benefits you. FR refers to either Flame Resistant or Flame Retardant clothing. FR clothing reduces the risk of an injury on the job relating to fire hazards. Keep in mind; FR clothing is not 100% fireproof. Furthermore, in the event of ignition, FR clothing will not burn as much as non-FR materials. Second, did you know there is a difference in the meanings of flame resistant and flame retardant? Flame resistant means material that will resist flames, embers, and ignition sources naturally. In contrast, flame retardant means the material is chemically treated to resist flame.
Next, how does this new partnership between Neese and Radians affect you? Above all, it brings industry-leading rain gear and FR clothing closer to you. Ordering both Neese and Radians products in one simple order has never been easier. Neese has been the industry leader in FR clothing and rain gear for years. As a result, you can be sure that you’re getting top quality gear when you invest in a Neese product. Therefore, let’s get into a few of the options Neese will offer through Radians.
