There are several sectors where the main risk in the work area is arc flash and where workers must use an arc flash protection fabric. The main consequences are flames, heat, molten metal splashes and ultraviolet light. Therefore, workers must wear Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).
If a worker is affected by arc flash, they may suffer burns, serious injuries, or even death. The degree of the burns may be greatly diminished by properly using personal protection equipment (PPE). These PPEs are classified as CAT 3 and are used within electric companies (in production, generation, renewable and distribution), including maintenance subcontractors.
Marina Textil thoroughly studies each of the zones deemed critical in the electrical sector in order to develop safe and comfortable arc flash protection fabrics.
