Intrinsically safe means the product is designed to not arc and cause sparks to prevet explosions in Atex or gassy areas. They usually carry fine lines of carbon throughout the garment to assist in its electrostatic properties, and you can see this if you look closely as a "checked" pattern woven into the fabric.
Inherently flame retardent hi vis clothing means the actual fibres that make the garment will not catch a flame, thus making it all inherently flame retardent as possibe, as opposed to some normal flame retardent garments that just have a flame proof coating applied. Inherent FR clothing come marketed with names such as
- Nomex – a revolutionary inherently flame retardant anti static material that creates a stable, inert barrier between fire and skin, this will not catch fire as the fibres are inherently flame retardent.
