The company’s latest innovation, Flametougher 290AS Flex, represents a significant advancement in electrical arc flash protection with a composition of CORDURA® nylon 6,6 to ensure certified strength as well as EOL fibres by XLANCE® for elasticity and comfort.

Furthermore, the textile manufacturer is extending its range of lightweight inherent FR fabrics from the Flameban family incorporating Lenzing fibers, an eco-friendly alternative containing a cellulosic base generating moisture management properties. This blend not only enhances comfort but also provides exceptional flame resistance, making it an ideal choice for professionals seeking both protection and comfort.

Continuing Carrington Textiles’ commitment to sustainability, the company is exhibiting at Intersec 2024 its new Tahoe as part of the stretch workwear fabric range containing 29-percent REPREVE® recycled polyester.

With these innovations, Carrington Textiles continues to prioritise safety, comfort, and sustainability in its product offerings.
