*Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV) - This represents the maximum capability for arc flash protection of a particular piece of outer wear. This value applies to fabrics. If a garment is made from more than one layer of arc flash rated fabric, it will have a calorie per square centimeter rating greater than the sum of the ATPV ratings of the original fabrics.

The majority of hospital admissions due to electrical accidents are from the arc-flash burns, not from shock. Each year more than 2,000 people are admitted to burn centers with severe arc-flash burns. Arc-flash can and will kill at distances of 10'.


  • Non-hooded jackets have hook & pile front closure
  • Available and in stock in sizes S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL
  • Sizes 4XL and 5XL are available upon special request
  • All are 32" long

 

PPE provides protection after an arc flash incident has occurred and should be viewed as the last line of protection. Reducing the frequency and severity of incidents should be the first option and this can be achieved through a complete arc flash hazard assessment and through the application of technology such as High Resistance Grounding which has been proven to reduce the frequency and severity of incidents.

Minimum Arc Rating indicates the amount of thermal energy the apparel protects against. It is important that workers ear natural fibers and fire resistant clothing because the severe burns can be as the result of ignited or melted clothing. Additional shields and barriers should be considered to protect workers. De-energizing and locking out equipment is the best way to protect workers.
