Workwear textile manufacture Carrington Textiles will exhibit at the National Safety Council (NSC) Congress and Expo which is taking place in San Diego from September 19-21.

The company will showcase its range of flame resistant fabrics with NFPA 2112 and UL accreditations.

This follows the manufacturer’s recent participation at the Network Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD) awards in the US, where it obtained the Innovation Award for the development of Hawksbill and Orca fabrics which contain a polyester that biodegrades.

Flame resistant fabrics for workwear like Flameshield 230 and 280, popular for their lightweight yet durable properties, as well as the products from the company’s Flametuff (220AS, 250AS and 330AS) and Flametougher (280AS) families, all certified with the NFPA 2112 and UL standards, will be the main focus at the San Diego event.

“Getting involved in events like the NSC is of importance for us as we continue to expand our reach beyond Europe where we are established as leading workwear textile manufacturer,” said sales director Paul Farrell. “We will be featuring some of our best flame resistant fabrics that are already certified by the North American UL safety certification.”

Carrington produces over 130 million metres of fabric annually from its production facilities in the UK, mainland Europe and Asia, exporting to more than 80 countries worldwide.

The company specialises in the manufacture of workwear, flame retardant, waterproof, defence and sustainable fabrics for virtually any industry and sector, with major end users including NHS, McDonald’s, BUPA, TATA Steel, Shell, Coca Cola, Airbus, Jaguar Land Rover, BP and Arcelor Mittal.
