Arc flash protective solutions

ProGARM® Arc Flash Jacket


Regardless of industry or activity, personal protective equipment (PPE) has long been considered the last line of defence for workers. In no field is this more prevalent than for those working with electrical equipment, where the potential threat from incidents involving Arc Flash – one of the most serious electrical hazards that can occur in the workplace, can pose situations ranging from a ‘near miss’ to a life changing injury or fatality.

At Clad Safety, we supply a full range of Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV) rated clothing that will provide the appropriate Arc Flash protection required to satisfy most incident energy analyses. These include arc flash waterproofs, coveralls, jackets, trousers, polo shirts, base layers, gloves and helmets that offer superior performance, innovation and most importantly, protection.

We stock a wide range of products from Arc Flash protective clothing specialist ProGARM® and have also developed our own Clad Safety Arc Flash items including arc flash cargo trousers and an arc flash hi vis coverall. This innovative range features easy-stretch side panels and elasticated waistbands to provide maximum comfort, movement and functionality whilst still providing optimum arc flash protection.

The Ultimate in waterproof protection

Elka Waterproof Breathable Jacket


The unpredictable nature of the UK weather results in most individuals working across the Utilities sector being regularly exposed to a variety of harsh weather conditions. Excellent waterproof protection compliant with EN 343 is therefore a vital requirement for these customers.

Clad Safety is a UK distributor for Elka, a leading Scandinavian company that specialises in the creation of functional workwear. Products such as the ELKA Flame Retardant Hi Vis Rain Jacket and matching ELKA Flame Retardant Hi Vis Bib And Brace are hugely popular amongst our Gas customers who require the optimum in protection from rain and flame.

Meanwhile, the Elka Working Xtreme range is the perfect choice for those not requiring high visibility clothing but are still working in foul weather conditions.

High Visibility Workwear for Women

Clad Safety stock a wide range of high visibility and arc flash clothing for women that is compliant with both EN 20471, RIS-3279-TOM and IEC 61482. No longer are they wearing ill-fitting and uncomfortable workwear, PPE and safety footwear. Items have now been designed specifically for female employees to ensure optimum comfort and protection at work.

In the UK, employers are required to provide PPE, and if women are required to wear PPE on-site and it doesn’t fit a woman’s body, then this can be a barrier. The concept of PPE regulations is that it should be fit for purpose, fit for use, and fit for the individual. Unsafe PPE for women results in higher risk to the health and safety of women on-site, through no fault of their own.
