National Safety Apparel is introducing a new ultra-lightweight and comfortable Arc Flash suit! The brand new 40 cal ArcGuard Performance Arc Flash Suit is 20% lighter than current top-tier 40 cal options in the market with just a single layer. They are also 50% more flexible than competitive models because of the revolutionary ArcGuard material, and the breathable, moisture-wicking fabric is a gamechanger for the electrical/arc flash PPE industry.


This Arc Flash Suit from NSA is the perfect combination of comfort and functionality for electrical and mechanical contractors, utility workers, general industrial companies, and anyone else working where arc flashes are a potential hazard. The suit is made with self-extinguishing 9.5 oz Gore Pyrad material, which keeps you cool, dry, comfortable, and unrestricted while working. When exposed to a flame, the suit will not flake or disintegrate, maintaining its mechanical integrity to keep you protected from the heat. This NSA Arc Flash suit is also super lightweight and thin, proving that thicker garments don’t always equate to more protection! It is also stronger than other competitive brands to keep you protected but not weighed down.

The 40 cal Arc flash suits are lightweight and breathable so heat and air can flow through easily. The material is moisture wicking as well, with added stretch panels for maximum flexibility.

Garment Options

A variety of options are available for this new arc flash suit from NSA to fit your needs. The 40 cal jacket features a knit linen collar, back stretch panels, pleated elbows, and a drawstring waist for the most flexibility and protection. The reflective trim along the jacket also ensures that you are visible at all times. These jackets are Arc rated at 41 cal/cm2, Cat 4, and NFPA 70E certified.

The ArcGuard Arc Flash Bibs in the kits that are comfortable and easy to move around in. Their ergonomic, single-layer design allows for more flexibility while still being reinforced in key areas. The legs have a 26″ zipper for quick and easy donning and doffing, saving you a lot of time throughout the work day.

For full body protection, you can add on the ArcGuard Lift Front Hood. The face covering features PureView faceshield technology that enhances visibility and is also anti-fog and scratch resistant. The front lift design conveniently allows you to easily open up the mask for fresh air when out of the hazard zone.
