A Brief History of FR

FR History WPS Blog

When you think of fire-resistant clothing, you probably immediately imagine fire fighters, welding shops, and maybe even electricians. With sparks flying and flames building, people with heat-intensive occupations need to have the right kind of gear. They have special flame-resistant gloves and jackets to prevent injuries.

Is Your Workwear Ready For The Cold?

Winterize your Workwear

So you went out and bought a great pair of work boots this year. They’ve been reliable all year long, getting you through more mud and rain than you’ve ever seen in your life. Once the temperatures drop, your work footwear could use a boost. Just as you need to dig out the winter box and start wearing a hat and gloves, your work shoes need some extra attention, too. They have to face snow, sleet, and even salt in the upcoming months.

WPS Shank Blog

Just take a glance at your work boots, and you’ll probably immediately notice their tough leather exteriors and durable rubber soles.
