Sperian (now part of Honeywell) launches the new IsoArc protective gloves as a response to the increasing number of severe injuries suffered by workers in the electrical industry. IsoArc is specifically designed for use in low voltage applications where there is risk of an arc flash.
Thermal damage caused from an arc flash can result in first or higher degree burns that are often complicated further by ignition, melting and burning of non-flame resistant materials and non-arc resistant personal protective equipment (PPE). The IsoArc protective gloves eliminate these risks by providing top quality PPE protection.
The IsoArc design combines electrical insulation protection and arc flash protection into one glove, without compromising user dexterity and mobility. Constructed from latex with a polychloroprene layer, the IsoArc protective gloves are safe to use in low tension electrical working environments, while remaining thin and mobile (1mm) enough to use in applications where small equipment and parts manipulation requires good finger dexterity.
The IsoArc features grip finishing to help maintain a firm hold and reduce hand fatigue. The bicolour finish also allows for easy visual inspection; the flame resistant exterior is finished in a work-safe vivid orange, while the natural latex beige colour of the interior provides high quality electrical insulation.
IsoArc protective gloves carry a RC rating, acknowledging their resistance to acid, ozone and oil as well as very low temperatures. These gloves also meet stringent industry standards with a usage tension of 1.000 Volts, making them the ideal hand protection solution for electrical workers in harsh conditions.
