HB-ArcSelect®

Electric Arc Flash + flame-retardant and antistatic properties

Our Westex UltraSoft® antistatic is a flame-retardant fabric with antistatic properties. It offers excellent protection against Arc Flashes. The very soft material follows every movement and offers high wearing comfort. The front of the jacket, the sleeves and the front of the legs of the 2-ply versions are manufactured with a second inner layer of the same material.

Arc Flash Class 1

PPE for work in the low-voltage range where arc faults with an incident energy of up to 4kA can occur.

 

The optical radiation, the convective heat flow of the hot plasma and gas flow and the plasma jets that occur at the base points of the arc lead to thermal stresses and damage. Depending on the intensity of the arc, the strong heat flow ignites and ignites combustible materials located in the immediate vicinity. The liquid metal splashes emitted by the arc further increase the risk of fire.

Arc Flash class 2

PPE for work in the low-voltage range where arc faults with an incident energy of up to 7kA can occur.

 

The optical radiation, the convective heat flow of the hot plasma and gas flow and the plasma jets that occur at the base points of the arc lead to thermal stresses and damage. Depending on the intensity of the arc, the strong heat flow ignites and ignites combustible materials located in the immediate vicinity. The liquid metal splashes emitted by the arc further increase the risk of fire.
