CLASS 2 ARC PROTECTION HAS NEVER BEEN LIGHTER

FOR WEARING ALLDAY LONG IN DRY AND TEMPERATE CONDITIONS

MORE FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT FOR INCREASED SAFETY

UP TO 50% LIGHTER THAN OTHER GARMENTS WITH CLASS 2 ARC PROTECTION

THE NEW ARC RATED GORE® PYRAD® GARMENTS

Electrical utility worker

Protective clothing is essential for electrical utility workers, but it's often heavy, bulky and restricts freedom of movement. That's why we have developed the new arc rated GORE® PYRAD® garments: at up to 50% lighter than other garments with class 2 arc protection, with GORE® PYRAD® garments workers no longer need to compromise on safety or comfort when working indoors or outdoors, in dry and temperate conditions.

THE LIGHTEST CLASS 2 PPE

The arc rated GORE® PYRAD® garments are up to 50% lighter than other garments with class 2 arc protection. At the same time, they provide the best arc rating.

INCREASED COMFORT

Arc rated GORE® PYRAD® garments allow the wearer to be agile when working in narrow environments. The wearer feels thermally more comfortable as the thinner material, based on single ply construction, doesn't accumulate body temperature while being active. Both contribute to a higher wearer acceptance and thus a higher level of safety.

TESTED AND PROVEN
CLASS 2 ARC PROTECTION

The GORE® PYRAD® fabric blocks convective heat flow on arc exposure and stops flame propagation by forming a carbonaceous char with the fabric while maintaining its physical integrity for reduced heat transfer to skin.
