CATU launches Cat’Arc, a new range of Arc Flash and multi-risk protective clothing

To meet growing demand from the France and Export market for protection of electricians facing arc risks and also risks associated with the working environment, CATU is launching a new ergonomic range of Arc Flash and multi-risk protective clothing for routine use, featuring a fabric that combines lasting safety, comfort and resistance. Available for the time being as Class 1 12 Cal/cm2, the range complies with the following standards: IEC 61482-2 on thermal hazards of an electric arc; American NFPA 70E standard and also EN ISO 11611 on protective clothing for use in welding; EN ISO 11612 on protection against heat and flame; and EN 1149-5 on properties for electrostatic dissipative protective clothing.

The range includes ergonomic 'benefits' that make a difference, such as a 'red panic zip', specially designed to remove the garment quickly and easily in the event of an accident. This original zipper makes it possible to remove the PPE up to twice as quickly as similar PPE with a standard zipper.

Needed to be developed rapidly, the Cat’Arc range is a strong product from the Safety SBU for this autumn.
