GORE® PYRAD® Protective Garments: Say Goodbye To Heat Stress This Summer


s Spring turns to Summer, electrical engineering workers may need to re-think their PPE, especially as the possibility of sudden exposure to an electric arc can never be

entirely dismissed. Does current PPE remain comfortable for end users as temperatures rise? Research shows that accidents are more likely to occur when the supplied PPE is discarded

or used intermittently, so climate comfort is crucial and equates to safety in this situation. There is a one-layer and breathable solution to mitigate overheating and heat stress

when working indoors within heated environments such as control or switch rooms or outdoors in spring or summer temperatures. Arc Rated GORE® PYRAD® protective coveralls, trousers and jackets offer Class 2 electric arc protection but they are made from single layer fabric. This makes the garments 50% lighter than other garments with Class 2 protection but also comfortable for the wearer all day and every day in dry and temperate conditions.

Montes Del Plata says yes to Ellis’ Emperor cleats


able cleats and straps designed, developed and manufactured in North Yorkshire are currently being

installed in the industrial headquarters of one of the world’s largest eucalyptus cellulose pulp producers – Uruguay-based Montes del Plata (MdP). MdP is a joint venture between two of the most renowned

forestry companies in the world: Chilean headquartered, Arauco and Helsinki headquartered, Stora Enso. Ells Patents’ Emperor cable cleats and FlexiStrap cable

straps were specified for the job by local electrical design consultancy, Eprisma; and were selected due to their proven capability to safely secure large power cable bundles; in particular on vertical runs. They are being installed in MdP’s main industrial plant

in Colonia – a region in the south west of Uruguay. Kelly Brown, Ellis Patents’ head of sales, said: “The reputation for the safety and quality of our cable cleats has been built over many years, and today Ellis Patents cleats are very much seen as the standard by which all others are judged.”
