||A new protective multilayer coverall is described which protects workers exposed to strong 50Hz electric fields produced by overhead electric lines with voltages up to 800kV. It consists of an outer layer of nonflammable, tear-resistant fabric and an inner layer of moisture-absorbing soft cotton. Metallised polyamide fabric with the protective effect of a Faraday cage is sandwiched in between the two layers. The coverall protects the entire body from head to toe. A protective helmet with transparent, gold-coated face shield is used instead of the hood for work on or near power lines with voltages above 420kV. Topics: electric fields; high voltage; insulating clothing; live work; materials for personal protection; metallic-scrim fabrics; overhead electric lines; protective clothing; work near electric lines.
