PPE and Laundry Supplier List

ArcWear is an independent laboratory; we do not manufacture or sell PPE.

As a courtesy, ArcWear provides a list of arc flash arc rated (AR) clothing, garments and equipment suppliers that have used our team for arc flash testing. ArcWear does not endorse specific products or manufacturers or receive compensation for the listings provided. To view specific product information, visit the the individual company’s website.

Arc Flash gloves are an integral piece of any company’s Personal Protective Equipment plan. Providing the most adequate hand protection in an electrically hazardous work environment is a key piece of a comprehensive safety program. Suppliers of arc rated gloves tested by ArcWear are listed below. Note that arc rated gloves protect from the thermal hazards of an arc flash accident. Dielectric gloves are required for shock protection.
