Elliotts  offers a wide range of industry-specific FR (flame resistant) and arc flash protective clothing specifically manufactured and customised for the Australasian market.  

Elliotts’ FR clothing and arc flash protective clothing are manufactured in Australia for Australasian conditions.    

Workers around the world are constantly exposed to the risk of flash fire, electrical arc flash and molten metal splash. Wearing the right FR clothing can make the difference between avoiding a disaster and serious injury or death.  

Molten metal, arc flash and fires are real workplace safety hazards faced by workers in metal, electrical, welding, oil and chemical industries.  

FR clothing does not ignite and can save lives, making it suitable for personnel working around molten metal, electrical utilities, oil and gas or any environment where there is risk of the worker’s clothing catching fire.  

Arc flash exposure kills a significant number of workers each year around the world. An arc flash is an electrical current that passes through air when insulation or isolation between electrified conductors is no longer sufficient to withstand the applied voltage.  

Elliotts recommends that FR clothing should be standard for any employee working on or near energised electrical systems, ensuring protection from arc flash exposure. FR and arc flash clothing must offer maximum protection while ensuring comfort for the worker.  

Arc flash, FR clothing and other PPE should be provided as a last line of defence in the event of an accident and to ensure workers are protected from harm.  

Manufactured from Banwear or UltraSoft materials, Elliotts’ range of arc flash clothing or switching clothing is available in options such as coats, hoods and leggings.  

Made from high visibility orange material, each garment meets the requirements of NFPA 70E while the jackets have been certified to AS/NZS 4602:1999 High Visibility Safety Garments by SAI Global.
