Cooling FR/AR PPE

 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

At BUFF Safety, we have gone a step beyond worker safety and comfort, including HeiQ SMART TEMP technology with our Arc Protect + FR products (arc flash rated PPE Class III certified under different European and American regulations).

Electric power industry technicians often work under extreme heat conditions with the best FR/AR clothing and gear, which can be thick and heavy to preserve their safety, translating into more effort and sweat as well as higher body temperature. By including this revolutionary textile technology that provides next-to-skin fabrics with the ability to interact with body temperature and dynamically respond to body heat, our products will help to keep these professionals cool and comfortable.

Cooling is activated by the worker’s rising body temperature and deactivated once the cooling is complete. Other features include up to 2.5°C cooler fabric temperature (depending on fabric weight and composition); exceptional efficiency and durability (100% cooling performance up to 20 washes); and independently tested as safe for the skin.
