The Benchmark FR arc and flame-resistant neck gaiter was developed because a customer had a problem and we found a solution. The problem was that their linemen would be up in a bucket truck drill into creosote poles and the shavings would fly into their face and mouth. They didn’t like wearing a full face mask or balaclava, so we created our a product that would protect them, but wasn’t as cumbersome.
Our FR face mufflers are made with a 5.2 inherent blend of cotton and nylon, making it soft and comfortable to wear. We’ve incorporated an asymmetrical ribbed stretch panel so it will fit even if you have a gigantic head. When the temperatures get cold, it provides a layer of protection against the elements and during the hotter months, it wicks away moisture and keeps the sun off your cheeks and neck.
We’ve added some unique graphic styles to our flame retardant neck gaiters because we believe being well protected and looking cool can go together. If you are working in a bucket truck drilling into a creosote pole or in the oil fields of the Permian Basin, it’s going to keep all the dust and debris out of your face and mouth. It also provides HRC/ARC Level 1 protection, has an ARC Rating (EBT) = 6.4 cal/cm2, is NFPA 70E compliant and meets ASTM F1506.
Our SkinSafe fabric means that you can sweat while wearing it and not have to worry about it irritating your skin. It also comes with some incredible warranties. We guarantee that your neck gaiter (or any of our products) will never lose its flame-resistant properties – EVER! Finally, if your FR face mask gets ripped, torn or otherwise damaged, we will repair or replace it free of charge – FOREVER! The only thing we can’t replace against is loss so don’t lose it.
