Each and every day electrical work is carried out all over the world. The risk that technical defects, maloperation, pollution or foreign matter in the installation cause arc faults cannot be excluded. In the event of an electric arc, workers are exposed to temperatures of more than 10,000°C, resulting in severe burns.
Arc-fault-tested personal protective equipment consisting of:
Safety helmet for electricians with face shield
Protective suit protects against thermal effects
According to the International Social Security Association and national regulations in the country of use, arc fault protection shall be taken into account for risk assessment. If there is an arc fault risk, employers shall ensure that suitable personal protective equipment is provided to their employees and that it is used. Personal protective equipment must be tested and approved by an accredited certification body.
Personal protective equipment from DEHN is tested to international standards. Visors made of nanoparticles, gloves and neoprene and leather protective suits offer maximum protection and wearing comfort.
IPD Group Limited traces its beginnings to the General Electric Company Ltd of England, founded in 1889. Over the years, the company merged and integrated the major electrical businesses of GEC, English Electric and A.E.I to comprise one of the most extensive and diverse electrical engineering and manufacturing organisation in the world.
In 1956, English Electric opened its operation at Regents Park in Sydney, evolved into GEC Australia and has provided employment and training to thousands of people in the Australian electrical industry.
Today Industrial Products remains as a much changed and diverse organisation - IPD Group Limited, a 100% Australian owned and operated company, acquired from ALSTOM in 2005 by the management team who continue to build on the original business platform.
In 2008 IPD acquired the Adelaide based lamp business of P.J. White & Co and in harmony brought the GE lamp and fittings business into our portfolio.
