Hot Worker


Hot Worker

Made from 100% cotton, has a weave so tight that sparks and spatter ‘bounce off the fabric’ allowing it to meet the new EN ISO 11611 welding standard to class 2 – the highest welding standard available.

As mentioned above, Arcbuster quite easily surpassed the maximum number of metal droplets (40) during the testing process, not to mention the ‘E3’ also achieved during the EN ISO 11612 molten metal splash test – again the highest standard possible.

Arcbuster is further certified with EN 1149-5 (Antistatic) and IEC 61482-2 class 1 (Electric Arc). Certainly a lot of standards for ‘just’ a welding coverall, but because ROOTS at all times has the health and safety of the wearer at heart and in mind, this is how we do it.

Alongside are the Arcbuster BTTG flash fire test results. 2,7%, combined 2nd & 3rd degree body burn prediction – an incredible result for a welding fabric.

  • Pain 17.5%
  • 1st° Burn 0.9%
  • 2nd° Burn 1.8%
  • 3rd° Burn 0.9%
  • 2nd° + 3rd° Burn 2.7%
  • ATPV (Arc Thermal Performance Value) rating 18.0 cal/cm2
  • HAF (Heat Attenuation Factor Factor) 88.5%
