An arc flash explosion produces intense energy that can super-heat the surrounding air to 35,000°F in less than a second. Constantly facing this erratic threat, utilities professionals must wear gear offering the highest level of persistent protection—even when exposed to the brutal effects of electrical arcing.
Working with electricity brings with it not only the danger of electrocution, but also the danger of fire from arcing, welding, an explosion, or another source. This is coupled with a reduced chance of being able to flee the danger, whether due to an electrician working on the basement level of a building or up on a telephone pole.
CarbonX non-flammable fabrics and apparel protect electrical workers from burns on the job. Our baselayer selection of FR clothing includes tops, bottoms, long johns, hoods, socks, gloves, and more.
The fact that our baselayers are known not only for their fireproof properties but also for their lightweight flexibility is of particular importance to electrical workers. Electrical workers face notoriously difficult working conditions, such as having to spend many hours outside or in tight, confined spaces.
At the same time, they must be able to fully concentrate on doing their jobs 100% correctly, thereby ensuring their safety and the safety of others around them.
For these reasons and more, it’s crucial that their clothing be comfortable and flexible while providing superior protection. CarbonX FR solutions for electricians also can provide extra warmth in winter, while summer varieties contain cooling properties that help wick away moisture.
Whether you’re in charge of safety at a local utility company or you’re an electrical worker, CarbonX PPE can provide necessary protection from burns. Put your safety in our hands—choose CarbonX.
