GRIT: Built for Durability and Safety

GRIT: Built for Durability and Safety

Published by PKSafety Team on Jun 7th 2019

When it comes to flame resistant clothing, you have a lot of options to choose from. But some FR clothing and safety products are better than others. If you invest in quality FR products, you and your team will have the right tools to stay safe on the job, and you’ll be better equipped to handle the task at hand. Just like better quality wrenches work better and last longer, the same philosophy applies to your FR equipment.

Our GRIT clothing line is made with quality materials that will last the test of time. Learn more about what makes GRIT one of the best FR clothing brands on the market today.

Made in the Americas for Lasting Quality

Here at PK Safety, we only use fabric that was manufactured right here in North America. We work with domestic and North American suppliers to make sure our FR clothing can stand up to the most extreme working conditions.

We choose North American suppliers for more quality assurance and shorter lead times. Asian manufacturers tend to be associated with a lapse in quality. It may also take several months for products and supplies to be shipped from Asia. But with North American suppliers, we can receive materials in just a few weeks. This gives us a chance to review and test the materials before putting our products on the market. If we notice any issues with the product, we can quickly send feedback to the manufacturer and receive a new shipment without missing important deadlines.

It took us approximately nine months to choose the right suppliers for our GRIT FR safety line. We received and tested samples from 10 different manufacturers across North America before making our final decision. We had to be sure our suppliers were doing everything they could to keep our clients and customers safe on the job. These manufacturers were already following industry safety standards, helping us streamline the manufacturing process.

Every item in our collection features thick, reinforced fabric that will protect you and your employees from extreme temperatures and possible fire hazards. We also use high-quality zippers that won’t break down over time. You can use these products again and again without putting your employees at risk. Remember to properly maintain your FR clothing and equipment. Keep it in a safe, dry place and inspect your clothing before each use for the best results.

UL Classified

Our GRIT FR clothing line is also UL classified. This is the gold standard of the safety product industry. Underwriters Laboratories is a non-profit organization that regularly inspects safety products and evaluates them based on the latest industry standards. Having the UL classification means these products have been inspected and passed by the organization, which means they’re safe to use in the field. Underwriters Laboratories will even inspect these products as the years go on, making sure they still comply with industry standards.

Buying UL classified safety products means you’re getting what you pay for, using the right FR and safety products on the job.

Serving Working Professionals for Over 70 Years

PK Safety has been serving working professionals for over 70 years. We know this industry inside and out, giving us the knowledge and experience we need to manufacture some of the best FR clothing on the market today. We go above and beyond the latest safety standards to make sure our clients and working professionals everywhere can stay safe on the job.

But creating effective FR clothing isn’t enough. We also want to keep our customers comfortable on the job. We understand that if our clothing is uncomfortable or has an awkward fit, workers will be less likely to wear them in the field. That’s why we offer a variety of different sizes and styles, so everyone, regardless of their body type, can find the equipment they need to work safely. We even tested our products after they’d been through the wash multiple times to see if the material changed in terms of its effectiveness, color, or wear-ability.

We understand that you have a lot of options when it comes to outfitting your staff with the right FR products. But nothing beats the lasting quality of our GRIT FR clothing line. Getting the job done all starts with quality safety tools and equipment.
