J & K Ross suggest you consider a “layering” approach to protection, as opposed to using a heavy bulky single layer, for example you might choose to use our ARCBAN® range of garments made from DuPont™, Nomex® a Polo shirt* and undergarments* (8.9 cal/cm2) beneath a coverall* (7.6 cal/cm2) the combination of these two layers will give you an ATPV of > 29.9 cal/cm2. To achieve this result with a coverall alone would entail using a single layer fabric weight in excess of 460 grms/m2 which may be very hot, heavy and uncomfortable to wear.
If you are to work outdoors and require protection from the elements, we offer the ARCBAN® range of Arc Protective, Windproof, Waterproof and Breathable garments, when worn over a layered system these add further to the level of protection provided. All of these garments use Gore Tex Annecy fabric for their superior performance.
Whatever system you choose to use we strongly recommend that you only use garments that have been tested as an ensemble in order that you will be able to demonstrate that the claimed ATPV value is based in fact.
The ARCBAN® coverall uses Arcshield fabric† made from Nomex® which is exclusive to J & K Ross and has been designed to be most effective against ArcFlash hazards.
The ARCBAN® undergarments use ARCBAN® knit made from Nomex® which is also exclusive to J & K Ross and likewise has been designed to be most effective against ArcFlash hazards.
Finally never wear garments, either over or beneath ArcFlash rated products, that are not at the very least flame resistant, as (for instance) even underneath an arc rated coverall, such garments are very likely to melt, with the potential to cause serious life threatening injuries.
