Arc:Gear

Arc protective multi-layer garments offering maximum protection with maximum comfort Our unique range of arc protective garments encompasses a multi layer system ensuring employees are offered maximum comfort and protection levels at all times. The next to skin and mid layers are manufactured from unique lightweight fabrics which offer unrivalled levels of breathability and movement which will not melt, drip or fuse on contact with an arc flash. We also offer a unique, true high visibility coverall with arc protection, manufactured from durable, anti-static, comfortable medium weight fabric. Arc risks aren’t restricted to the indoor environment, therefore for those employees working outdoors, arc protective outerwear is a must. Our range encompasses a GORE-TEX arc resistant outerwear option offering wind resistance, water resistance and breathability. Each layer offers an ATPV level, which can combine to offer a multi layer performance of 15-80 cal/cm2

Premier Arc unique laundering process A unique laundering service for specialist workwear... Conventional laundering, dry cleaning and home washing can be ineffective on heavy soiling, dull bright colours and reflective tapes can damage specialist fabric finishes, reducing levels of protection. Premier Arc is a dedicated laundry service, exclusively designed to remove the heaviest of soiling whilst maintaining the effectiveness of specialist workwear. This ensures the life of the clothing is extended, dramatically reducing your workwear replacement cycle. The Premier Arc laundry process encompasses a 12 point procedure, each part designed to ensure garments are cleaned, repaired and replaced with the maximum of care and the minimum of disruption. In terms of the wash method, all products are presented for the PHS Besafe unique wash process utilising the Aqueous wash cycle at 40 degrees. This wash process is designed to remove as much contaminant as possible from the garments, whilst protecting the fabric and its components.

Once the garment is laundered, a visual inspection is carried out to ensure contaminant removal has taken place. If required, the garments will be laundered again to ensure optimum removal of soiling has occurred. All high visibility products are then dried through the PHS Besafe tunnel process. The wash temperature is kept low to ensure reflective and sealing tapes and the fabrics. The wash temperature is kept low to ensure reflective and sealing tapes and fabrics are not damaged in the drying process. An integrity inspection is then undertaken to check zips, press studs and sealing tapes are all still intact. Although the wash process is an integral part of the service, PHS Besafe recognises the need for a fully comprehensive service. In addition to the washing of the garments, the Premier Arc service also includes: • Collection of all clothing from the client’s site • Scanning of all items for tracking purposes • Repairing faults when necessary • Inspection sheets outlining all guaranteed checks • A commitment to return garments within one week Introduction

Bright Gear

PHS Besafe already take care of thousands of high visibility garments every week for industries as diverse as: • The aggregate industry • The engineering industry • The rail industry • The transport industry • The utilities industry Our unique laundry process is gentle, yet highly effective on all garments, even those with the heaviest soiling, ensuring the life of the garment is extended, dramatically reducing your workwear replacement cycle. The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations (1992) require “Their employer to ensure that any personal protective equipment provided to his employees is maintained (including replaced or cleaned as appropriate) in an efficient state, in an efficient working order and in good repair”, and that includes all workwear. We can help you satisfy these requirements and provide an audit trail for duty of care through the barcode traceability and reporting. Flame Gear
