This is a relatively new industry that requires protective clothing that is certified to EN ISO 11612 and EN 61482-2. We recommend a Tranemo Skinsafe™ system with an outer layer that provides PPE 2 protection with an arc rating above 8 cal/cm².

When working in electric car industries, Tranemo recommends garments certified according to standard EN ISO 11612 and IEC 61482-2 / EN 61482-2. Working with car batteries and defect batteries there is a risk of an Electric Arc. With the right solution of clothing marked IEC 61482-2 / EN 61482-2, the impact of these risks will be minimised. A Tranemo Skinsafe™ system with an outer layer that complies with PPE 2 and has an Arc Rating (ATPV or EBT value, according to NFPA 70E) above 8 cal/cm² is recommended.


When the power to the car is cut off and/ or switched on, high spikes in current are created and there is a risk of being exposed to Electric Arc with very high energy levels. The Switch range is developed for these risks and offers protection to an energy level of 40 cal/cm² (PPE 4).


All our Electric Arc garments have the Arc Rating value stated on the outside FR label to make it easy for you to choose the right protection. Moving forward, we will also add the ELIM-value. For occasional welding, the fabric also needs to pass EN ISO 11611 or use welding accessories to offer further protection. The range Tera TX Non-Metal with visible details is suited for car industries since it approves for the above certifications and are Non-metal/scratch free.
