As the days begin to get longer, outside temperatures begin to drop, and weather conditions become more hostile, being able to protect your workforce from the elements becomes an ever-increasing priority for those companies operating within the wind sector.
Working outside at this time of year, workers can be inclined to wear extra layers underneath their company issued arc flash protected PPE in order to keep warm. As harmless as this may seem, the effects can be highly serious in the event of an arc flash. This is because the materials that these everyday clothes are made from can drastically compromise the protective properties of the PPE.
Ultra Warm - Perfect for Cooler Conditions
The one of a kind Arc FR Hoodie created by inhouse brand STRATA® Protection negates the need to do this by keeping those working outdoors ultra warm in even the harshest of winter months thanks to its inner fleece lining. The heavy knit 390gm inherent flame retardant fabric is both washing machine and tumble dryer friendly, meaning no danger of shrinkage when put through the wash.
The newly released hoodie is the first in the UK to have been designed with safety front of mind. Reflective piping is a key feature for greater visibility, the piping is strategically placed on pockets so when working in dark turbines they are visible when shone with a head torch. The grown-on hood removes the need for drawcords whilst also reducing catching hazards thanks to the fact that it stays close to the head when worn and when not worn, it doesn’t hang loose down the back.
Featuring a ribbed hem and cuffs - for added comfort, the hoodie uses the latest Skanwear Easi Arm Gusset technology, along with a raglan sleeve, to provide workers with the ability to freely move around completely unrestricted.
Zipped front pockets work to stop tools and equipment from falling out whilst working at height and the innovative media port is compatible with various music player devices to keep your workers both entertained and in constant communication whilst on the job.
