PWG has launched a high-energy arc kit made from Nomex, which, it says, benefits from the latest technology in protective clothing against electric arc.
The kit, which is said to be certified to IEC 61482-1-1 and IEC 61482-1-2 class 2, consists of a jacket, trousers, hood and gloves, all of which can be used along with respiratory equipment.
DuPont safety engineers recognised the need for such a kit owing to the risks faced by them while carrying out tasks, such as changing switches in electrical distribution systems, or maintenance routines in low-voltage environments. The jacket is said to allow freedom of movement and can be adapted to the body, with Velcro fastenings in the lower end of the back. The trousers are designed in a similar way to the jacket, with numerous Velcro fastenings for individual hip adjustments, or to widen the trouser legs around the shin.
The hood incorporates a convex visor, which, says PWG, provides a wide field of vision. As the visor is double-glazed, the inner-lying green visor, which protects against light flash, is said to be permanently protected against scratches.
