The Dromex Arc Flash Protera workwear has recently passed Open Air Arc test, which was performed by Kinectrics, the leading Arc test facility in Canada. The same garment has also passed a Box Arc Test 8 Cal at a ratio of 12.4 Cal/cm2.
“Providing the correct PPE for health & safety is always our priority and with a life‐threatening thermal hazard such as Arc flash, we’re extremely pleased to know that our Protera garment offers the best workwear protection in its class” says Mike Varikas, the Dromex Workwear Merchandise Manager.
With an ATPV = 12.4 Cal/cm2 the 2‐piece garment was successfully tested to 16.8 Cal/cm2 with no break through
the garment, no ignition of any component or fabric, no melting or dripping and fully operable closure with only a
“moderate charring of thermal indicator”.
The Dromex Protera garment officially conforms to NFPA 70E Class and complies with SANS 724:2010 HRC Level 2
and this is a significant achievement in Arc flash workwear technology. Dromex also stocks a full range of Arc PPE that include balaclavas, gloves and goggles which protects against the thermal hazards of electric arc. “As South Africa’s largest PPE wholesaler, we believe that all employees in any work environment are entitled to maximum safety protection and that employers should not have to compromise on the quality of the PPE products they provide for their staff.” Stel Stylianou, Dromex CEO Know Safety.
