Electrical workers have an extremely hazardous occupation. Although there are numerous safety measures involved when working with electricity, anything can go wrong, at any time. There is the risk of electrocution, for instance, and then there is the hazard known as electric arc-flash. Electric arc-flash is an electrical explosion that results from a connection through air to ground, or from one voltage phase to another. An electric arc-flash releases highly significant quantities of energy and heat and can lead to fires and severe burns. When electrical workers operate in environments in which there is a high risk of electric arc-flash, it is imperative that they wear quality PPE that provides protection from head to foot®. CHARNAUD® has developed the CHARNAUD® SURVIVE-ARC® range for this exact purpose.

Full-Body Protection Against Arc Flash

Electrical workers place their entire body in harm’s way when they are at risk of experiencing an electric arc-flash. Therefore, they must protect themselves from head to foot with quality PPE that is designed and manufactured to the highest international standards to protect against the blast and extreme heat of electric arc-flashes. The CHARNAUD® SURVIVE-ARC® range is a comprehensive collection of protective wear made from certified, comfortable, permanently flame-resistant and arc-rated material. These garments, when worn together, will protect workers against the thermal effects of electric arc flash. Every article in the range, from the switching suit, to the undergarments, gloves and footwear, has been approved according to EU standards.
