How to get the most out of your Arc Flash clothing

February 02, 2018

If you are investing in arc flash clothing to wear in the workplace, you want to be sure that you are using it as effectively as possible in order to maximise the benefits of the gear.

Arc clothing can help to keep you warm, protected and comfortable while you are carrying out daily tasks in your job, but it pays to know how to use it well to get the most out of what you buy. 

This blog will give tips and ideas that will help you get the most out of your Arc protective clothing.

Layer up to increase protection 

If you work in the construction industry or any other type of job that requires heavy lifting and the use of machinery, you rely on your clothing for protection and layering up is a good option if you want to benefit yourself even more while you are at work. Keeping your body covered can help keep you safe, and is even more beneficial during the winter months when the temperatures have plummeted. We stock a wide range of polo shirtssweaters and overalls on our site, so layering up for both comfort and protection couldn’t be easier. 

Know how to wash your clothing properly 

Investing in arc clothing and wearing it is one thing, but looking after it well outside of work will ensure its longevity and will mean that you won’t need to spend more money replacing your workwear. If your clothing is soiled or stained, it’s important to wash it on a high temperature, as this will help to remove the stains. Be sure to consult the labels on your clothes as they will usually come with instructions and will give you an idea about the best way to wash your clothes. Wear can result in holes and tears in your garments, and if this is the case you will need to get these items replaced. Clothing that has holes in it will not provide you with the necessary protection and could result in you getting injured, so be sure to buy a replacement straight away.  

Invest in quality 

When it comes to choosing arc clothing, be sure to go with something that will stand the test of time, as this will mean you won’t need to replace it as much. All of the products on our website are the result of thorough research and specialist knowledge, meaning you can be sure that you are always getting quality, long lasting goods.
