Flame retardancy is a secondary risk that we always assess when required but, when dealing with electric arcs, always match the type of testing to the risk in hand.
Even the Clydesdale arc flash belt has been tested using an EN61482-1-2, class 2 arc (7kA, 0.5s) to ensure that the Flame retardant material maintains its integrity under the toughest of arc flash conditions.

Friday’s ride spent the whole day sat under the great French autumn monsoon and was definitely character building to have to spend just short of 180 miles battling trench foot and hypothermia alternately.
Saturday’s ride where all the hill climbing happened obviously then got really hot and clear and we had a tough but very scenic days cycling.
Sunday’s ride was a time trial against the clock to cover 166 miles and get to Dijon before a predicted thunderstorm arrived in increasingly windy conditions.
Officially a very mixed bag but we completed it and this year’s challenge was exactly that. The event medic earned his keep this year but fortunately Team PLF didn’t need his services.
We’d all be eternally grateful if there was anyone who had thought of sponsoring us but didn’t find the time to have a look at our virgin giving account which will remain open for a while yet.
And big thanks again to all those who donated to our causes, Bedfordshire Cerebral Palsy Society and BLISS baby care.
This years challenge is in the Auvergne and tackles some fairly lively terrain.
Our aim is always to have the best presented vehicle in attendance and this year promises to be no exception.
Clydesdale cover all costs associated with the team's entry and attendance, ensuring every last penny donated goes to directly to charity.
Can you guess???
