Cementex, a national leader in the manufacture of electrical safety solutions, has released the updated UltraLite Series of Arc Flash PPE Task Wear, designed to combine comfort with complete safety. Available in both 11- and 12-cal/cm2 and 40 cal/cm2, the UltraLite Series is ideal for a wide range of uses.
Developed after years of firsthand market research, the UltraLite Series garments are designed for use by qualified persons trained in proper arc flash safety in any situation where the risk of exposure to an arc flash is present. The updated line of garments now features a standard color gray, which reflects sunlight for heat reduction in outdoor applications. Additionally, the gray garments allow for easier identification of contamination, as well as any dirt or debris that may compromise the safety of the garment.
The 11- and 12-cal/cm2 UltraLite garments include a balaclava-hooded long-sleeved T-shirt and simple high-waisted pants, made to fit comfortably over daily-wear clothing. With kits available that include gloves, a helmet and face shield, and a basic tool kit, UltraLite Task Wear ensures that technicians are completely safe and prepared for the job.
The breakthrough technology used to create the 40-cal/cm2 UltraLite joins two different materials to produce highly protective garments that are 37 percent lighter than typical 40-cal/cm2 garments, while maintaining premium comfort, durability and wearability. The UltraLite line of garments includes a coat/coverall, pants with a bib and a 40-cal hood. The hood now can be upgraded with an optional ventilation fan system or hood lamp. The line is available as separate garments or in kits that include garments, a suit hood, safety glasses, gloves and a basic tool kit.
All Cementex products are made in the USA to the highest standards of quality. The UltraLite Series meets current ASTM F1506 standards and ASTM F1959/F1959M-99.
