Arc Rated High Visibility Clothing

Supplier: Extreme Safety

Modacryl is one of the first high visibility materials to be made available with flame retardant properties and an Arc Flash rating.


The modacryl FR and Arc Flash fabric is also permanently antistatic. If high visibility is needed, plus the feature of extra safety when working with dangers of Arc Flash or fire, or other hazardous areas; then this range of FR clothing from ROFA and Extreme Safety is perfect.

It is important to note Modacryl does not provide the same level of protection against fire, Arc Flash and other dangers as does NOMEX or Proban. This range is perfect as a uniform for those working in the field all day, to provide that extra safety.

The Arc Rated High Visibility Clothing are tested to 4kA for 500ms, which in many cases will be more than adequate. That is approximately equal to a 10Cal/cm2 rating in the American standard (NFPA-70E). This is a guide only; protection does become higher when more than one garment is worn.

When a task must be performed with a higher fault current risk than this, a switching coat or Arc Flash suit or any similar item can simply be worn on top to boost teh ATPV (Arc Thermal Protection Value)  for this short task.

Many different types of garments are available to suit anyone's needs.
