THE SAMURAI GORE® PYRAD® WILL CONVINCE YOU
ONCE YOU DISCOVER THE TECHNOLOGY
Electric arc application :
GORE® PYRAD® offers a high level of protection from arc flash and open fire threats by balancing flame resistance, thermal insulation, and thermal stability, resulting in an astonishing 49,1 ATPV value. The unique technology self-extinguishes flames so that the fabric does not continue to burn longer than 5 seconds.
Stable char technology makes the parka to cover itself in a carbon shell when exposed to fire.
All benefits of the renowned GORE-TEX membrane in terms of 100% lasting windproof (>15.000 Pa), wind stopping and superior breathability (RET of 8,3). The outer shell parka can be combined with FR fleece insulation for higher cold resistance results.
The incredible lightness of the fabric at about 1225 grams for our average sized parka (45% lighter than common electric arc class 2 parkas in the market-place), puts an absolute minimal burden on the crew’s back, having to deal already with several other PPE and tools…
The minimal absorption of moisture in rainy conditions makes the parka up to 50% lighter in wet conditions.
Waterproof (>15.000 Pa), windproof and highly breathable (8,3 RET)
Breathable for excellent transpiration moisture and heat-stress management.
