Breakout Sessions


This presentation uses a unique two-presenter debate format to explore the primary questions contractors face when trying to make good decisions about arc rated clothing.

It begins with a look at the basics:

  • Why AR?
  • Does my company need AR?
  • The truth about arc ratings, comfort and heat stress, and how to select quality AR.

The second half of the session will feature a detailed, but friendly, debate between a daily wear expert and a task based expert. During the debate, we’ll examine the pros, cons and costs of each approach, decision points, and best practices. It will become interactive with the audience as it progresses, and will include new super slow motion 4K video of daily wear and task based clothing in real arcs.
