Lightweight, Arc Rated Garments For Electrical Utility Workers

Protective Rainwear That Doesn’t Feel Like Rainwear

Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD garments stay light-weight and comfortable when wet or dry. They are durably waterproof and reliably protect electrical utility workers against the thermal hazards of an electric arc. They are the perfect choice for long working days with changing weather conditions.

Arc Rated GORE-TEX PYRAD Garments

Arc Rated

The GORE-TEX PYRAD fabric blocks convective heat flow on arc exposure. It stops flame propagation by forming a carbonaceous char with the fabric while maintaining its physical integrity for reduced heat transfer to the skin.


These garments are up to 45% lighter; they feel significantly less bluky and offer higher freedom of movement. More comfort leads to increased wearer acceptance and thus to increase safety.


Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD garments are durably waterproof as protection against rain and wind is key to preventing wear-ers from getting wet and cold. Their high breathability helps to avoid moisture building up from inside.


New - Stretch Technology

Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments are available in a stretch fabric. This new technology provides electrical workers with an extremely comfortable, soft, and durable solution. Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® Stretch Jackets and Trousers are 45% lighter than other Class 2 arc protection rainwear. Workers can easily bend, kneel, climb, and stretch without any restriction of movement.
