Don't think about GORE-TEX products. Think about getting your job done.
STAY SAFE OUT THERE
WITH LIGHTWEIGHT ARC RATED RAINWEAR.
Heavy rain in the morning. Rising temperatures in the afternoon. Long working days. It is tough to work outside in hard weather conditions. And in some jobs, it is getting even tougher. The risk of an electric arc incident can put electrical utility workers into extreme danger every day. Of course, there is norm compliant protective gear available – but those materials are heavy, bulky and absorb rain. In addition, on warmer days, you tend not to wear them. All this puts your protection at risk. Until now. Available for electrical utility: Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments that stay lightweight and comfortable when wet or dry. They are durably waterproof and reliably protect you against the thermal hazards of an electric arc. Maximum comfort combined with the highest protection level. Be safe – whatever the challenge.
You need lightweight class 2 arc protection for all-day use?
Arc rated GORE® PYRAD® Garments
Arc rated GORE® PYRAD® garments are the lightest garments available with class 2 arc protection. At up to 50% lighter than other garments, they provide optimal arc protection all-day long in dry and temperate conditions.
GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology
Flame retardant technology protection with non-FR textiles.
Durably waterproof, windproof and highly breathable
Material and garment construction are durably waterproof, windproof and highly breathable. Approved after rain tower test (EN 14360) new and after industrial laundry (ISO 15797, 60 °C).
Blocks convective heat flow during arc exposure
GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology blocks convective heat flow during arc exposure and stops flame propagation by forming a carbonaceous char with the textile.
