Are there any companies out there providing 12 cal rated shirts?

We just ordered some 12 cal rated jackets for all of our electricians to carry around with their arc flash PPE. At a prior location, I had ordered what I believe were 12 cal welding jackets for all employees, but it appears that they have been discontinued by the manufacturer I was using.

For regular shirts, I haven't really found much better than 10 cal easily available.

Drifire has 12 cal. There are many in knits but just a few in wovens. I think you can get some from the main companies. Check online for this. NSA shows some but I know almost every manufacturer has them. Most focus on 8 in shirts and better than that in coveralls. It could be a pretty heavy shirt depending on the fabric composition. I know CarbonX has 12 cal long sleeved knits as do others.

Thanks Mark. You were one I was thinking of when I said major players.
