Tarasafe unveils Tararc against arc flash fires
Tarasafe, a leading brand of flame-resistant (FR) apparel, has unveiled Tararc, a product line that protects against arc flash fires and delivers superior comfort through fabric and design innovation, without compromising the safety of its wearers. Wearing arc-rated garments and PPE is the main line of defense against severe injuries due to arc flash.
When arc flashes occur, the most severe injuries often are the result of non-flame-resistant clothing igniting and continuing to burn, causing far more severe burn injuries than the arc flash itself.
Designed to meet the needs of workers and linemen in the electric utility, oil and gas, emerging energy and NFPA 70E (manufacturing) industries, Tararc Arc protective clothing helps insulate the wearer from heat, resist breaking open of garment and will not ignite or continue to burn when exposed to a high intensity, short duration explosion and electric arc fire. Tararc offers wearers increased comfort through superior breathability, mobility, softness, durability and moisture wicking – while providing protection from arc flash fires and similar dangers.
“As part of the engineering process, Tararc specially created yarns, fabric, and chemistry that will provide protection against arc flash and help increase workers' comfort and productivity. Our Tararc range includes protective FR coveralls, FR jackets, FR shirts and arc rated head protection such as FR face shields, FR hoods, FR balaclavas, and FR goggles - all of which keep you protected from arc flash and fire hazards,” stated Basant Lohia, managing director of TaraSafe International.
Tarasafe is an ISO 9001:2008 certified Indian company that has globally positioned itself as a specialist, providing complete solutions in flame retardant protective clothing. The products offered by TaraSafe meet the stringent international norms for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The garments are CE certified.
