Arc Flash gloves


Microlin’s arc flash gloves have been expertly designed to provide comfort, dexterity and most importantly, protection.

Arc flash (often called a flashover) is a type of electrical explosion or discharge that results from a connection through air to ground or another voltage phase in an electrical system.

In order to protect oneself from arc flash we have developed our Arc 5 glove, which is both economical and protective. Arc flash protection work gloves are designed not to ignite in the event of an arc flash, helping to save your hands from a serious burn.

Wearing Arc rated PPE is crucial to saving lives when doing electrical work.
Not wearing arc flash protective gloves can cause serious injuries to the hand in the form of burns. An arc flash event can take less than a tenth of a second to happen and can be three times HOTTER than the surface of the sun.

Wearing Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV) and flame Resistant (FR) gloves is one way to protect the user by reducing worker incident energy levels.
