ArcFlash Protection - Introduction


Elliotts are Recognised as Experts in ArcFlash Protective Clothing

With a legacy of over 55 years in the PPE manufacturing industry, Elliotts understands that safety is paramount. In today's rapidly evolving industrial landscape, the importance of arc flash protective clothing cannot be overstated. These specialised garments are the frontline defence against the potentially catastrophic consequences of electrical arc flash incidents, and our longstanding commitment to excellence ensures that workers remain shielded from harm as they carry out their crucial tasks.


Testing to International Standards


Elliotts is committed to providing the best protective solutions that meet and exceed international industry standards. Most manufacturers use test reports supplied by fabric manufacturers, make up a garment and call it an arc flash suit. However, at Elliotts, we use independent third-party testing of, not only the fabrics but garments and hoods to provide the wearer with the confidence that the PPE will provide the protection it claims. 


At Elliotts, we have always ensured our fabrics and fabric assemblies are tested, but we take it a step further by getting our completed garments also tested. Our Category 4 hoods and garments are tested by ArcWear at Kinetrics High Current Laboratory in Canada. 


Specialist Safety Advice


Our experienced Regional Managers can visit your site and assist in identifying what type of protection is the most suitable for your specific circumstances. We can provide sample materials if required for you to conduct your own tests to help you select the most suitable fabric combinations. 


Protection is at the core of what we stand for and we want to make sure that you're always protected as well as you can possibly be, especially when at work. To help you make the choice of selecting the right arc flash protection easier, we have provided a reference centre with detailed information to help you understand the materials, designs, and standards involved with today's market.
