Class 2 arc protection garments that are up 45% lighter in dry or wet conditions than other comparable garments. Keeps wearers dry and comfortable outdoors, even in extended periods of heavy rain.


    Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.


    GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric technology 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 45% lighter than other garments with class 2 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 also available in a stretch fabric for a better fit and improved freedom of movement.


    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 45% 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.

    How it works

    Upon arc exposure, the GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric reduces convective heat flow and stops flames or damage from an arc flash by forming a carbonaceous char with the fabric. The physical integrity of the fabric is maintained effectively for reduced heat transfer to the skin.

    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.
