A comprehensive line of Arc Flash Safety Clothing!
OHSA 29 CFR 1910.269 (1)6)(iii) requires employers to ensure that their employee’s clothing does not increase the extent of injuries sustained when exposed to flames or electric arcs.
Clothing worn for a particular application must have a Energy Breakeven Threshold (EBT) or Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV) higher than the potential hazard to prevent the onset of second degree burns.
The NFPA 70E standard addresses electrical-safety work practices and procedures. The standard is applicable to employees working on or near exposed energized electrical conductors or circuit parts.
Our flame resistant (FR) protective clothing meets or exceeds ASTM F1506 performance requirements. Always perform a careful hazard assessment. Determine the minimum PPE cal/cm2 rating based on the severity of the arc hazard.
OEL uses INDURA® Ultra Soft® and INDURA® brand flame resistant (FR) protective clothing fabrics which are guaranteed flame resistant for the life of the garment.
The advanced INDURA® Ultra Soft® provides excellent protection from electric arc flash (for NFPA 70E, ASTM F1506 and OSHA1910.269 compliance), flash fire (for NFPA 2112 and CGSB 155.20 compliance), molten ferrous metal splash and welding exposures.
This excellent protection is coupled with the soft breathable comfort of cotton and by engineering 12% high tenacity nylon in the face of the fabric, INDURA® Ultra Soft® is designed to wear at least 75% longer than all cotton, which leads to an excellent value equation.
This superior balance of protection, comfort and value offers end-users with an excellent option to FR synthetic fabric such as Nomex IIIA.
