Redbank Instruments offers the Oberon range of arc flash undergarments to help reduce the degree of burns if the outer layer of flame-resistant clothing breaks open in an explosion from an arc flash incident.
OSHA 1910.269 states that garments worn by workers shall not increase the severity of burn injury in the event of an arc flash incident.
Garments that ignite and continue to burn on the body can increase the severity of the burn injury.
Oberon’s FR undergarments will not ignite if the outer FR layer breaks open. Additionally, these arc flash undergarments increase the arc rating of the total garment layering system, reducing the probability of the onset of second-degree burns.
Redbank Instruments supplies all FR products in the Oberon range of arc flash PPE.
