Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.
Unique arc rated GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology is engineered to provide optimal protection against heat and flame by balancing flame resistance, thermal insulation and thermal stability.
Up to 50% lighter than other garments with class 2 arc protection, the garments allow the wearer to be agile even in narrow environments and encourage all day wear.
Designed with single-ply thinner material, wearers feel thermally more comfortable as the fabric doesn't accumulate body temperature, even while being active.
With comfortable protection that's up to 50% lighter than other class 2 arc protective wear, arc rated GORE® PYRAD® garments allow electrical workers to move freely, even when working in restrictive, narrow environments.
Electrical workers will feel far more encouraged to wear their safety clothing all day - which means they'll also stay protected all day. When dealing with dangerous electrical situations on a daily basis, the highest level of continuous protection is, of course, essential.
When working in dry, temperate conditions, wearers will also feel comfortable thermally thanks to the single ply, thinner material which doesn't accumulate body temperature, even when the wearer is active. So whether electrical workers are hard at work indoors they'll no longer need to compromise on their comfort or safety.
Electrical Utilities Workers
For indoor or outdoor electrical work in dry and temperate conditions, class 2 arc protection GORE® PYRAD® garments are up to 50% lighter than other garments in the same class.
