WORKWEAR

    It is tough to work in changing weather, and with dangerous conditions like liquid chemicals, flammable substances, heat, fire, and electric arc. Of course, there is protective workwear available – but traditionally that gear is heavy, bulky, absorbs liquids and is often too warm to wear during strenuous work. Workwear with Gore fabrics provides maximum comfort combined with the highest protection level.

    DESIGNED TO PROTECT

    PPE with Gore protective fabrics has been rigorously tested to ensure it performs and protects as intended in a range of scenarios.

    ELECTRIC UTILITIES

    Arc rated PPE needs to offer the highest level of protection for electric utilities workers against the daily thermal hazards of an electric arc, without weighing down workers with garment bulk. Garments need to be light to wear (when wet or dry), so they are able to be worn for long shifts, in changing temperatures, indoors and outdoors, and even during rain. PPE should allow for freedom of movement, high visibility and the ability to work in narrow environments.

    PYRAD® SUITS by GORE-TEX LABS FOR ELECTRICAL CONSULTANTS AND TECHNICIANS

    When exposed to high incident energy and performing tasks that encompass a risk of arc incidents of up to 40 cal/cm2, electrical consultants, contractors and E&I technicians in fixed sites need highly reliable protective clothing. As their work is often also very physically demanding, they also need freedom of movement. With the new arc rated PYRAD® suit by GORE-TEX LABS they no longer have to compromise proven cat 4 arc protection in a measurably thin and lightweight fabric.

    WEATHER PROTECTION

    Wearing the right protective gear in foul weather can make all the difference to job performance. Gore workwear features durable waterproof and windproof protection with high breathability: the fabric is engineered so that sweat vapour can escape, to avoid a build-up of heat and perspiration, and can also easily withstand high water pressure and severe mechanical stress over many years. With this level of comfort and protection, workers can focus on the job at hand and work for long periods outdoors in tough conditions.

    CHEMICAL SPLASH

    In order to prevent skin contact with liquid chemicals, personal protective equipment is required. From gloves to boots, the garments must offer liquid splash protection and breathable comfort so workers can move easily for maximum productivity.

    OIL AND GAS

    Workers are faced with a broad range of industrial threats and hazardous conditions daily when working with oil and gas. Exposure to extreme conditions, including flames are frequent, and choosing outerwear that doesn't add bulk, so range of motion is not compromised, is essential.

    PYRAD® TECHNOLOGY by GORE-TEX LABS

    PYRAD® technology by GORE-TEX LABS provides protection when exposed to flash-fire and (for arc-rated fabrics) heat from an arc explosion. The fabric forms a stable char helping to protect the wearer. It minimizes heat transfer to the skin thus reducing the risk of burns. It provides burn protection combined with the benefits of non-flame retardant textiles.
