Superior® PXN/KG18 Contender™ Arc-Flash FR Kevlar® Sleeve Protectors Exposure to Arc Flash Hazards

Electricians are on the front lines of dangerous jobs and being at risk to occupational hazards such as electrical burns, electrical shock, lacerations, fire and arc-flash requires specialized personal protection. An arc flash is a phenomenon where a flashover of electric current leaves its intended path and travels through the air from one conductor to another, or to the ground. With an arc burn, the  electricity ionizes air particles and the heat that is produced can vaporize metal which means regular clothing doesn’t stand a chance.

Superior® Contender™ Arc Flash FR Kevlar® Sleeves

This Contender™ brand of knitted safety sleeves was specially designed for electrical workers that are exposed to fire and arc flash hazards. Arc Flash tested for level 2 with an ATPV of 8 cal/cm2, these PXN/KG18 Contender™ sleeve protectors from Superior Glove® are one of the first sleeves on the market designed for workers who are exposed to fire and arc flash hazards. They feature DuPont™ Kevlar® knitted fabrication that provides 360° ANSI cut level A5 cut protection and are inherently fire resistant.

While some tasks performed by an electrician are inherently dangerous, many risks can be avoided by wearing the proper safety equipment. Be sure to add these Contender™ Protective Sleeves to your electrical safety PPE gear bag today.
