Portwest MV26 Modaflame High-Vis Arc Flash Trousers

The Portwest MV26 Modaflame High-Vis Arc Flash Trousers are designed to offer protection against arc flashes, as well as other industrial hazards such as electrostatic discharge, molten metal and chemical splashes. The trousers are both durable and comfortable, with triple-stitched seams, knee pad pockets and an elasticated waist for freedom of movement.

What Can the Modaflame High-Vis Arc Flash Trousers Do to Help Me?

The trousers have several helpful features:

  • Arc Flash Protection: The trousers offer extensive protection against arc flashes
  • High-Visibility: The trousers feature reflective tape and qualify as high-vis
  • Multi-Hazard: The trousers offer protection against radiant, convective and contact heat as well as welding related hazards, electrostatic discharge and splashes of harmful chemicals
  • Functional: The trousers feature two tier knee pads for comfort and durability, long lasting brass zips, nine pockets for storage and triple-stitched seams to prevent rips or tears
  • Mobility: Elasticated back waist for comfort and freedom of movement

The Arc Flash Trousers are made from Modaflame, the modacrylic fibres providing inherent flame resistance. The cotton fibre woven into the fabric bestows anti-static properties, and the flame resistant qualities of the jacket will not diminish with washing.

Who Can Use the Portwest Modaflame High-Vis Arc Flash Trousers?

The Portwest trousers offer the ideal lower-body protection against industrial hazards such as arc flashes, and are excellent in combination with the Portwest Arc Flash Jacket. They are suitable for multi-hazard environments, and the elasticated back waist allows for full freedom of movement. They are ideal welding trousers, but equally suitable for industrial electricians, road workers or energy testing technicians.
