This Flag Will Not Burn

We get angry when someone torches the flag and it burns us a little when we see imported polyester flags being sold at the local hardware store.

We could not resist the temptation to take our USA made, flame resistant T-Shirt and print it with the American Flag.  The beauty is that now Old Glory is flame resistant and will protect the wearer against arc flash and flash fire.


This shirt is flame resistant not fire proof; there is a big difference. Flame resistant means it will resist ignition and self-extinguish once the ignition source is removed. Fire proof means it does not burn at all, like trying to burn steel with a lighter.


Stop & Wash: The graphic t-shirts are treated with a nontoxic water based treatment, around and under, the graphic. This acts as a primer so the color is vibrant and does not soak into the fibers of the shirt during printing. A new t-shirt can feel slightly “starchy” due to this treatment; we suggest washing your flame resistant graphical t-shirt in cold water prior to wearing.

Shrinkage After Laundry: Shrinkage is controlled with this FR T-Shirt. You can expect your shirt to shrink about 4% total after the first one or two washes. For an average size XL this means about 7/8” in the width and about ¾” in the length.

Laundry & Care: To preserve the graphic we suggest you wash cold or warm temperature using liquid or powder detergent.

CUSTOM SIZES & TIPS

If you have a need for custom fitting FR we can help make code compliant and custom clothing to fit.

The easiest way to make your custom size is for you to send us a “like” garment which we measure, create a custom pattern and then manufacture your custom fit FR. By a “like” garment we mean if you want a button up shirt send us your favorite non-FR button up shirt. Within a week we will send back your garment after taking its specifications. A few weeks later three sets of your soon to be favorite FR clothing will arrive at your door!

MEASURING YOUR T-SHIRT-SIZE

In most cases, your t-shirt size will directly correspond to the size of Benchmark FR shirt or outwear you normally wear.

ALREADY WEARING ANOTHER FR BRAND?

We can help! If you are currently wearing another FR brand we can easily determine what Benchmark FR size will fit closest to your garment. Most FR brands vary in fit and sizing may not be consistant between brands. Problem Solved; just tell us what brand and size you are wearing and we can tell you the Benchmark FR size that corresponds directly to that brand. Please call (888) 360-0663.
