With Safe-T-Arms™ barricades, arc flash safety compliance can be easy-to-achieve, highly effective, and economical. This ingenious product enables employers to establish a highly visible boundary warning of arc flash hazard areas and instructing unqualified and/or unprotected persons to remain at a safe distance. The end result is consistent, predictable compliance, which is the key to any workplace safety program.*
  Each electrical system is different and requires competent flash hazard analysis in accordance with National Fire Protection Association standard 70E (NFPA70E). That’s why Safe-T-Arms barricades come in 3 different styles. Mountable Safe-T-Arms barricades, available in permanent-mount and portable Universal Magnetic -mount styles, are designed for use on most low-voltage (<600V) systems where NFPA70E standards establish a 4 foot flash protection boundary. For systems requiring a flash protection boundary greater than 4 feet, free-standing Safe-T-Arms barricades can easily be placed at the appropriate distance. With Safe-T-Arms barricades, every arc flash hazard area can have the right product for the on-site conditions.
  All Safe-T-Arms barricades are made within NFPA standards, which cover a broad range of electrical safety issues, including safety-oriented workplaces, proper installation procedures, electrical system maintenance practices, and special equipment requirements. For more information on these important subjects, and to see how Safe-T-Arms barricades can become an integral part of your workplace safety program, we recommend further research and education.

*Of course, establishing flash protection boundaries is only one part of a comprehensive arc flash safety program, which requires highly trained personnel, appropriate personal protective equipment, and other steps dictated by conditions of each electrical system.
