Maximum protection with capital M

All workers are at risk when referring to Arc Flash. Whether you may be an electrician, a lineman, electro-mechanic, hydro posts installer, an instrumentation technician, a blue collar worker in aqueduc underground sites or the city's electrification services, a hydro electricity distribution worker, everyone needs a full body protection.

An Arc Flash's heat level reaches as high as 16,000 degrees celcius whithin less than a second ! A maximum protection will prevent major burns if not a fatal scenario. In these circumstances, the Canadian CSA Z462 comes at the rescue with its four categories, appropriately designed to adress all potential hazardous environments. Category 2 is the most common one for all. The standard determines the heat calorie level, per centimeter square, per second that a protective apparel should be tested to. In the case of Category 2, 8 to 25 calories per centimeter square per second are a must, to fit right in!

The "Ready-at-Work" essentially becomes the appropriate protective shield as it won't flame up, nor melt nor drip. Finally, be aware, a "ready-at-work" ward robe whithin the protection world, relates to all garments being flame resistant.........even the underwear.
