Workers in the electrical industry are often exposed to hazardous and potentially dangerous workplace conditions while working outdoors in the rain. Improvements have been made to the fabric of the Zetel ArcSafe wet weather apparel, developed to protect workers against electric arc flash in wet weather conditions, including modifications to the components and construction to improve the ATPV rating from 8.9 to 11.0 Cal.

ArcSafe wet weather gear is available in two levels: ArcSafe Wet Weather that provides HRC 2 level protection in a full waterproof wet weather jacket and trousers; and ArcSafe GR FRAS (flame-retardant, antistatic), which is the same ArcSafe material with an interwoven carbon grid to provide antistatic properties to the garment. The clothing is highly visible, waterproof, breathable, windproof, flame-resistant and offers protection against electric arc hazards.

Zetel ArcSafe is a three-layer, flame-retardant, durable, breathable, waterproof and windproof fabric that offers electric arc flash protection of HRC2 (ATPV 11). It conforms to the requirements of EN1149-3:2004 - Protective clothing electrostatic properties-surface resistivity.

Zetel ArcSafe GR is a three-layer, flame-retardant, antistatic, durable, breathable, waterproof and windproof fabric that offers electric arc flash protection of HRC2 (ATPV 8.9) and incorporates core conducting trilobial yarns which offer good antistatic performance and durability. It conforms to the requirements of EN1149-3:2004 - Protective clothing electrostatic properties-surface resistivity.

Features of the ArcSafe jacket include: weight - 271 gsm; garment rating HRC 2 ATPV (Cal/m2) = 11; test shot rating HRC 2 ATPV (Cal/m2) = 11.

Features of the ArcSafe trouser include: weight - 271 gsm; garment rating HRC 2 ATPV (Cal/m2) = 11; test shot rating HRC 2 ATPV (Cal/m2) = 11.

Zetel ArcSafe wet weather jackets and trousers have been tested by Kinetrics Laboratory in the US to ensure they meets the highest possible standards required by electrical workers. The arc-safe jacket and trouser showed no failures in the test results and are said to be the most effective arc flash wet weather gear available.
