CATU Electrical Safety Equipment

CATU Electrical Safety Equipment

CATU Electrical manufacture electrical safety equipment for LV HV and extreme HV applications. The range includes insulated PPE, LV testing equipment, live working tools, Lockout Tagout (LOTO) equipment, MV substation equipment and HV Line and Switchgear equipment.

The use of correct electrical safety equipment is absolutely vital when working in and around substations to protect those working in these areas such as Senior Authorised Persons (SAP’s), linesmens, cable jointers, technicians and HV electrical engineers.

Electrical safety equipment can be used during switching and maintenance operations on low and high voltage cable systems, including 3.3kV, 6.6kV, 11kV, 33kV and EHV.

CATU Electrical lockout tagout electrical safety products provide safe isolation of products and systems to protect any personnel carrying out work, inspection or repairs. The purpose of locking is to separate cut off or neutralisation parts with a suitable system in order to prevent the usage by any unauthorised persons and is usually accompanied by signage.

The range of CATU electrical safety equipment can be used at the following voltages: LV up to 1000 volts, HV up to 52kV (including 11kV 33kV) and EHV above 52kV (including 66kV, 132kV, 275kV, 400kV).

CATU Electrical Personal And Collective Protective Equipment

CATU personal and collective protective equipment (PPE) range includes arc flash clothing, insulating gloves, boots and mats and insulating tools. The correct use of insulating tools and protective equipment can mean the difference between life and serious injury or death of anyone coming into contact or near the point of an arc flash, short circuit or other un-expected surge of power.

Arc flash is a type of electrical explosion that results from a low impedance connection to ground. The specific dangers in addition to the electric current are the heat and light that are exerted when the explosion occurs. An arc flash can occur during a short circuit or other incidental electrical fault.

Arc flash explosions can cause an extreme surge in power and result in temperatures generated of over 19,000°C which is hotter than the sun.
