Steve Hill, Sales and Service Director from Wearwell said, “Creating workwear that can protect against arc flash exposure has meant working closely with fabric manufactures and wearers. We have spent 12 months fully immersed in this area of PPE as we sought to understand how we can mitigate this hazard without compromising on comfort. In doing so, we have designed a brand-new range of workwear able to withstand extreme temperatures of up to 12,000°C, explosive forces, emission of plasma, fast moving debris and hot liquids.”

Tecwear’s PPE workwear sets a new standard, with superior fabrics and carefully considered designs that elevate wearer comfort and protection. This new range includes a two-tone coverall, jacket, and two sets of trousers, one two tone the other single colour. In addition to the outerwear a supporting range of arc and FR protection underwear, including a balaclava, trouser, long sleeved t-shirt, and a pair of socks, have been developed to ensure complete head to toe protection

Wearwell’s new Tecwear arc protect coveralls, jackets, trousers and base layers meet British and European safety standards. Each garment in the collection is manufactured under Article 11b legislation and all the arc protection garments have been subjected to strict BTTG testing and certification. Tecwear arc protection garments are accredited and conform to the latest IEC 61482 – Protective Clothing against Thermal Hazards of Electric Arc.
