Arc flash protective clothing


GORE-TEX PYRAD Products enable utility linemen to work extended periods of time without becoming distracted by discomfort resulting from inclement weather. GORE-TEX PYRAD fabric provides protection beyond ASTM F1891 requirements. Using revolutionary self-extinguishing properties, the arc flash rated fabric is able to maintain its 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.
