MAXIMISE YOUR ELECTRIC ARC PROTECTION - DRESS LAYER ON LAYER

Wearing several layers of garments will increase the amount of energy that the garment system can withstand. Flame protective garments protects you from flame and heat during a certain amount of time. Flame retardant underwear extend the time you are protected from heat and improved your protection against second degree burns. Adding an extra flame protective layer provides even greather protection.  

The same is for  garments certified for electric arc. At Fristads we have conducted unique electric arc tests for different clothing combinations to ensure the exact values.    

Watch our movie to learn more   about our electric arc tests and dressing layer on layer.

GUIDE TO THE RIGHT FLAME PROTECTION


For you working in environments where flame protective garments are required there are strict rules on how to dress. Which protection you need is determined by an analysis off all potential hazards. We have a great assortment of flame protective garments to guarantee the right protection according to the latest European norms. Your safety is our top priority. We have also taken the electric arc protection one step further and conducted unique tests for specific clothing combinations.
Fristads is market leading in electric arc certification. We present exact values on specific garment combinations. This also includes Box test class 2.

​​​​​​​To ensure the exact values the tests are made on all garments together, layer 1-3.  It is not possible to calculate a correct value by adding the values of each garment.

The table is updated ongoingly.

If you wear several layers of flame protective garments you increase your protection when welding (EN ISO 11611) and also your protection against radiant heat, contact heat and splashed of molten iron (EN ISO 11612).

The table is updated ongoingly.

A risk assessment shows possible hazards at your work. The findings from this study helps in determining suitable garments that offer the right protection and the best comfort.  
Examples of hazards that are investigated in a risk assessment are  convective heat, high radial heat, flame contact, steam, molten metal, hot surfaces, high voltage, electric arc and static build-up.
