Arc Flash Gloves
Arc Flash Gloves, from the ProGARM range of Arc Rated garments and clothing are used to protect against arc flash accidents as the last line of defence. Arc Flash PPE will not prevent incidents, and it is therefore vital that a comprehensive electrical safety plan for maintenance, repair and diagnostic procedures (involving energised LV, MV or HV electrical equipment) is also implemented.
Thorne & Derrick distribute a range of arc flash gloves to suit a range of requirements. Variations include Neoprene and Natural Rubber coated and Kevlar lined options in a wide range of sizes. Contact Thorne & Derrick with your specific PPE requirements and we will be happy to help.
The ProGARM range of Flame Resistant protective garments are designed for every-day wear and protection – the highly breathable clothing ranges are designed for comfort and safety without compromising the ability of the wearer to work productively, safely and unhampered by cumbersome garments prone to overheating.
The importance Of Arc Flash Protection
Arc rated clothing and electrical PPE should be worn when working on energised conductors, cables or circuits.
Over 50% of workplace accidents from low voltage switchgear are from arc related faults – they are not confined to medium/high voltage power distribution networks where even small levels of residual voltage can trigger an arc flash. Arc Flash Hazard is a subject that is undergoing increased discussion and scrutiny in today’s safety conscious environment. The intent of the standards in this area is to provide an increased level of safety for the electrical worker.
Put simply, an Arc Flash incident can cause significant injuries, and possible death without the correct procedures in place. Consequently, it is vital that the correct procedures are in place to mitigate the risks and protect against potential accidents.
