Understanding the need for practicality and safety, ProGARM has launched its Arc Flash dexterity gloves, which are coated with neoprene and natural rubber to ensure excellent comfort, grip and flexibility. Thus, providing the wearer with A4/Cut 5 resistance, as well as heat and Arc Flash protection, making them suitable for a number of high-risk environments.
In addition to this, ProGARM’s new belt is made from inherently flame-resistant materials and features a buckle and end tip made from PA 6.6 – a material with extremely high temperature resistance.
Mark Lant, technical sales manager at ProGARM, explains: “We frequently see PPE clothing being worn incorrectly because a lot of this clothing is bulky, rigid and impractical – it’s all too easy to wear some comfortable, warm gloves or an everyday belt, to roll sleeves up or undo a jacket, but all this seriously compromises the safety of an individual against an Arc Flash.
“While many people think that outer protective clothing provides sufficient protection, in reality all garments need to be Arc Flash resistant, from the gloves and belt to the undergarments, otherwise the wearer is still at risk of injury.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to safety and industry innovation, we’ve identified these key areas that pose a risk to workers and have created a comprehensive product range that offers the wearer the ultimate level of protection without obstructing day to day tasks.”
