Flame Resistant Workwear
Geliget Gear® brings together function and form to create high performance workwear demanded by intense environments. Made in Nova Scotia, Canada, Geliget derives its name from the language of our indigenous people, the Mi'kmaq, who first persevered in a land of extremes. Through ingenuity, these First Peoples devised the tools and materials necessary for their survival. The Mi'kmaq used the term "geliget" to signify protection and now we use that word to describe the central focus of our line of FR workwear.

SPECIAL CARE FOR FLAME-RESISTANT GARMENTS
Detergents and Supplemental Chemicals to Avoid with Flame Resistant Fabric Chlorine Bleach (sodium hypochlorite) must not be used separately or in detergents. Chlorine Bleach can adversely affect the flame resistance of the fabric. Review of various laundry advisories generally prohibit the use of chlorine bleach for protective fabrics of any fiber composition.
Hydrogen Peroxide Bleach (Oxygen Bleach) must not be used as the presence of metals with hydrogen peroxide can adversely affect the flame resistance of FR fabric.
Laundry Products such as fabric softeners and starches present a complex situation relative to use with all flame-resistant garments washed at home. Since it is impossible to examine and control each product and procedure that might be used, we recommend that such products not be used.
