Protection against the hazards of an electric arc

A new perspective, protective workwear against electric arc. These informative articles should contribute to a better insight with respect to the possibilities to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of your staff in the best possible manner against the hazards of an electric arc.

In its essence, the protection from the electric arc is not so much different from the protection against burn injuries that are caused by a flash fire. In both cases, it is the aim to protect wearers against thermal hazards that could result in 2nd degree burn wounds or worse. It is the nature of the hazard that makes flash fire protection different from electric arc protection.

ROOTS garments are meticulously designed, manufactured and tested for optimal protection against the thermal hazards of an electric arc and flash fires.
