New: Hi-Vis FR Clothing and Mid-Weight FR Clothing for Linemen

hi-Vis FR clothingNearly 115,000 linemen and linewomen across the United States work tirelessly to keep community electrical grids safe and functioning.

At Lakeland, we are proud to protect those workers with high performance FR/AR clothing.

Flame resistant clothing and arc flash clothing are designed to protect workers on the line from the inherent dangers of the job, but we believe FR apparel should offer more.
