DROTEX oversees the whole operation, for spinning the yarn to weaving, dyeing and finishing the fabrics in five mills across China. The techniques and qualities used are produced according to the DROTEX’s exact specifications. DROTEX delivers a superior range of advanced flame-retardant fabrics for high level of protection durability and consistency in Industrial laundries, International Oil Gas market, mining and for many other industrial safety applications.
The manufacturing process has 6 inspection procedures to meet the demands of quality control, from the inspection of accessories and fabrics to semi-finished products, finished products, the re-inspection and finished packaging inspection, whilst nearly a quarter of the output is subject to random quality checks.
♦what's the difference between DROTEX and others?
What is NFPA 70E?
The National Fire Protection Agency's (NFPA) 70E is the Standard for Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces. NFPA 70E requires employees to wear flame- resistant protective clothing wherever there is possible exposure to electrical arc flash. Although it is a voluntary standard, NFPA 70E is considered a generally accepted industry standard. Therefore OSHA may fine companies under the general duty clause, which requires employers to take the appropriate steps to protect workers. NFPA 70E is widely accepted throughout general manufacturing as well as the electrical industries. NFPA 70E requires employers to perform a flash hazard analysis to determine the flash protection boundary distance. The standard is designed to protect employees working inside these flash protection boundaries by requiring protective clothing for the corresponding Hazard/Risk Category (HRC) that has an arc thermal performance value (ATPV) of at least the value listed in the "Protective Clothing Characteristics" section of the standard.
Is compliance with NFPA 70E required by law?
Although NFPA is not required by law, the intent is clear: companies are expected to maintain a safe place of employment for their workers including appropriate protection from flash fires and / or electrical arc flash.
What is ATPV?
Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV) is a rating assigned to FR fabrics indicating the level of protection provided. Higher fabric weights typically have higher ATPV's and provide increased protection as does the layering of flame-resistant clothing. ATPV is measured in calories per centimetre squared (cal/cm2).
