Protecting Workers with the STRATA® ARC Fleece

Protecting Workers with the STRATA® ARC Fleece

January 20, 2021

Introducing the new ergonomically designed STRATA® Fleece Jacket with inherent arc and flame resistance. Combined with a high level of comfort, the garment provides an excellent level of protection against and electric arc event and also protection against heat and flame.

The STRATA® Arc Fleece meets electric arc standards EN61482-1-2 Class 1 and EN61482-1-1 11cal, as well as flame retardant standards EN11612 A1, B1, and C1, and is one of the only garments in the industry that is produced to fleece quality using low piling – not bobbling up so that it looks newer for longer. This makes it the ideal choice for those working in utilities, petrochemical, electrical, oil and gas, and other similar industries.

Made for comfort

Designed with Easi-Arm Technology, the gusset enables optimum movement for the wearer whilst still providing the perfect fit for ultimate protection at all times. In addition to being inherently arc and flame resistant, the material is breathable, soft to wear, and has a fantastic touch like no other. 

This is because, unlike similar garments, this fleece has been specially built with the worker in mind rather than adapted from another item of protective clothing, such as a sweatshirt.

As a result, the STRATA® Fleece Jacket features an oversized funnel neck collar with chin guard, which works like a neck gaiter to keep in the heat when working outside in cold / freezing conditions. The large zipped pockets on the front provide ample room to store tools and equipment and the built in internal storm flap keeps the wearer warm by stopping any wind from coming through the zip.

Suitably certified

In addition to the various UK and EU electric arc, flame retardant, antistatic, and UV protection standards and certifications that the garment meets, it is also has been certified by the United States based National Fire Protection Association, so that it is suitable for use in both European and American markets.

Keep your workers warm in the popular STRATA® Arc Fleece. Currently worn and protecting global customers SSE Renewables, ABB, EDF and Fimer. Find out more about this and any of the cooler weather solutions from the STRATA brand, contact one of our friendly team of experts atsales@skanwear.com
