Arc flash-rated products


GORE-TEX PYRAD is a range of fabrics that deliver an unmatched combination of broad protection, comfort and durability, making them ideal for utility industry applications. GORE-TEX fabric provides protection beyond ASTM F1891 requirements. Using revolutionary self-extinguishing properties, the arc flash-rated fabrics are able to maintain their physical integrity even after direct exposure to flame. In addition, rainwear constructed from GORE-TEX PYRAD laminates satisfies the conditions for ANSI 107 high-visibility, improving the safety of line technicians without requiring them to wear additional gear.
