When Highest ARC Protection is required and Physical Burden is demanding.
Tested and proven arc protection cat 4: ATPV ≥ 40 cal/cm² according to ASTM F1959
20% lighter than alternative aramid blends. The lightest weight 40 cal arc protection below 10 oz.
Very breathable (referring to RET value rating, Hohenstein Institute methodology)
When combined with ergonomic garment design, achieve up to 39% increased freedom of movement to greater assist the electrical workers daily tasks
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 GORE® PYRAD® suit they no longer have to compromise: proven cat 4 arc protection in a measurably thin and lightweight fabric (versus multiplied aramids required to achieve equivalent protection).
