Electric and Hybrid vehicles (EHVs) can present a lethal danger to unprotected and untrained service and repair technicians, with this in mind Prosol now offer complete safety solutions to warn and protect your employees.
With voltages up to 600v DC and the fact that just 70VDC can be fatal, you cannot afford to take risks and so we have compiled sensible packages for personal protection and vehicle exclusion zones.
We have researched this field thoroughly and taken advice from leading industry professionals to ensure you get what you need.
Our Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Personal Protection products include Class 0 Electrical Safety Gloves, Dielectric Rubber Floor Mats, both certified for safe working up to 1,000v. An alternative (or addition) to Insulating Rubber Floor Mats are Dielectric Over-Boots, they’re not pretty but they do the job and are essential if you’re involved with vehicle recovery. A Full Face Arc Protection Visor should always be worn when working on electric and hybrid vehicles and Prosol’s dielectric Face Shield Visor is comfortable to wear and does its job.
Don’t forget the service tools required for servicing and repair of electric and hybrid vehicles, we offer a comprehensive range of VDE certified Insulated Hand Tools which are safe for work up to 1,000V, the only type of tooling that should be used when working on Electric and Hybrid Vehicles (EHVs).
After extensive testing and trials, another product recently released is the FIRE CLOAK – EV Car Fire Blanket. Developed to combat the potentially uncontrollable and destructive effect of an EV Car fire (that can’t be extinguished by traditional means), the Fire Cloak helps to contain and restrict collateral damage to other vehicles and property. Further details and a video of the Fire Cloak in action at MIRA can be seen at www.evfire.co.uk
