ASTM F-1959: The Arc Rating Standard

The ASTM F-1959 standard for determining arc ratings yields ratings that are accurate, precise,
and easy to understand and implement. This is due to a number of reasons. The standard is
tightly written, leaving no room to bias the results. All testing is done exclusively at Kinectrics, an
independent lab in Toronto, Canada. And finally, the ratings are expressed as one number, and of
course, a higher number means more protection.
