Honeywell has announced a new line of next-generation arc flash garments for electricians, utility workers and engineers to wear when working in commercial, industrial and utility environments.

The Pro-Wear™ Plus gear from Honeywell Salisbury® provides workers with improved fit, breathability, moisture management and comfort when working in challenging environments.

The new professional-grade gear features lightweight design, soft fabrics and optimal fit that incorporated end-user feedback.

“We’ve listened to feedback from our customers and implemented several new features to address comfort, moisture management and breathability,” said Kevin Pietras, global marketing director for Honeywell’s Electrical Safety business.

The PPE is offered in 8-100 Cal/cm2 ratings, which can be purchased separately or as part of a kit. The 40 Cal/cm2 premium garments feature an exclusive design and are among the lightest, and most breathable options available in the industry.

The garments are certified to ASTM F2178, ANSI Z87.1, and NFPA 70E standards.
