Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.
PYRAD® fabric technology by GORE-TEX LABS blocks convective heat flow during arc exposure and stops flame propagation by forming a carbonaceous char with the textile.
When wet or dry, these garments are up to 20% lighter than other garments with category 3 arc protection, allowing the wearers to work outside for extended periods during heavy rain.
As breathability is key for an improved comfort and leads to an increased wearer acceptance, GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabrics are highly breathable and avoid build up of moisture from inside.
Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments are durably waterproof and keep the wearer dry and comfortable when working long hours outdoors in heavy rain.
Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments are durably waterproof and reliably protect electrical workers against the thermal hazards of an electric arc. They stay lightweight and comfortable even when wet.
Up to 20% lighter when wet or dry than other products of their protective class, arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments feel less bulky to wear leading to more wearer acceptance.
The garments provide maximum comfort with the highest protection level, so electrical workers remain safe – no matter the challenge, and no matter the weather.
