Benchmark FR has proudly protected North American workers for more than 20 years.

Since its inception, Benchmark FR has focused on making higher quality flame resistant clothing that is safe to wear against the skin and more comfortable to wear than other FR brands.

Most importantly, Benchmark FR is priced effectively for superior performance and compliance.
