Increased Arc Flash protection through layers

Effective protection from Arc Flash incidents comes from not only a protective outer layer but protective mid and base layers too.

Program VXS+ InherentThe added benefit of ProGARM’s range of safety overalls, polo shirts and garments is that when worn together they increase the level of protection from Arc Flash and flash fire incidents. For instance, layering a ProGARM polo shirt with a ProGARM sweatshirt not only adds the two protection levels together, the air gap between them adds additional insulation and protection.

Our products are listed with open arc ratings so you know exactly what level of protection each garment provides. The ARC incident energy levels are measured in calories per cm2 this is referred to as the cal rating. These are then measured into 4 categories with a minimum cal rating per category required.

When you layer up garments you can increase the level of protection. For example, the ProGARM 5280 polo shirt at 7.0 cal/cm2 and the 5630 Sweatshirt at 14.4 cal/cm2 when worn together achieve a cal/cm2 rating of 31.0 cal/cm2.
