Bulwark FR<sup>?</sup>

Nobody gets comfort better than the Bulwark? brand. With a perspective free of accepted barriers, the brand is the world’s leader in flame-resistant apparel. Without question. Without compromise.


Bulwark FR?

For more than four decades, the Bulwark? brand has served the oil and gas, electric utility and petrochemical markets – without compromise. And as the world's largest manufacturer of flame-resistant (FR) apparel, the Bulwark? brand is on an inspired mission to raise FR’s “Innovation Quotient” with a new era of better and smarter protective apparel. With the industry's widest and deepest selection of fabrics, styles and colors, the Bulwark? brand offers a game-changing product line that doesn’t trade comfort for safety.


The Bulwark? brand paired VF’s culture of innovation with the R&D capabilities of Milliken & Company to develop the iQ Series? – an entirely new form of flame-resistant apparel.
