Workers on oil platforms carry out several tasks. Therefore, their personal protection equipment (PPE) must be made out of multi-protective fabrics that cover their protection needs depending on the type of work, temperature and time of year.
Out of all the work areas within the petrochemical sector, we find ourselves working with the so-called ATEX zones (highly explosive areas or atmospheres), which may generate electric arc and where the use of fireproof and anti-static fabrics (at least anti-static) is critical. These fabrics must be impermeable, treated with fluorocarbon or with welding protection.
There are also monochrome and vehicular traffic zones. This requires workers to use high-visibility fabrics and fluorescent bands.
These are the fireproof fabrics that Marina Textil has developed for oil platforms. Click on any of them to find out more about their specifications.
