Metalwork can be hazardous, especially, when working with molten metal. Molten steel can have a temperature of anywhere between 1,205 to 1,370 °C, if that contacts the skin, extremely severe burns can result. Anyone who handles molten metal as part of their daily duties must have durable, effective protection against these hazards. CHARNAUD® has created the METAL-SAFE® range specifically for workers in these industries. Here is a brief introduction to some of the accessories in this innovative product range.
