Wear layers to increase your protection.

Research carried out by Snickers Workwear in the toughest of working environmentshas concluded that the best ways to improve your level of protection against electric arc hazards is to wear layers. The main benefit of wearing layers is that the air gap formed between different garments provides increased protection.

There is no general rating for how much increased protection the air
gap between layers provides. However, Snickers Workwear’s appointed test labhas conducted a number of tests that show that the air gap increases protection by more than 5 cal/cm2.

The calorie level of the extra protection depends on a variety of factors, such as fabric structure, thickness and construction. What we do know for certain is that wearing multiple layers does improve the protection rating. It’s therefore best to think of the air gap between each layer as extra protection that improves your chances of avoiding burns in the event of an accident.

ProtecWork clothing is fully accredited to a variety of risk andbad weather working environments and all the garments are manufactured from tailor-made fabrics designed to respond to the demands of the conditions in which they’re worn.
