Protective Safety Clothing

Press Release   •   May 16, 2016 16:13 BST

Protective Safety Clothing is designed to protect you in a workplace environment whether inside or outside.

This clothing comes in many formats, including safety overall, protective trousers, safety jackets and high visibility clothing, all designed with safety in mind.

Flame Resistant

Flame protection is important for workers who are in close proximity to flammable materials, fuels and furnaces, among other fire-risk areas. These garments are designed from materials that are either made flame resistant or treated with a flame resistant chemical.

Work Trousers

Protective Trousers are designed to protect the users from the day-to-day elements they may be working in. Although it is important to make sure work trousers are sturdy and suitable for the job in hand, they must also be flexible and comfortable enough for the user. Clothes which make the wearer too hot, or which prevent movement easily, can become more of a problem than a safety solution.

Hi Vis Clothing

High visibility clothing lets individuals stand out when working in a hazardous area
where vehicles and heavy machinery are being operated. This helps to prevent accidents and collisions. Hi Vis clothing is made from bright fluorescent colour (usually yellow or orange) with reflective stripes. In many occupations such as construction it is a legal requirement to wear this type of clothing to ensure both public and personal safety.

Cold Weather – Water Resistant

Weather and cold protection is important for outdoor workers, especially those working in cold storage or freezer rooms. Garments should be fully waterproof, durable, breathable for comfort and wind resistant. Many jackets come with an inside fleece for insulation. Interactive clothing enables compatibility between outer and inner layers, such as fleeces and soft-shells integrating with outer shell garments. 3-in-1 garments offer multi-layered protection against foul weather across all four seasons. Rainwear that forms a resistance to wind and water in very challenging weather conditions are normally either PVC or Polyurethane coated, and offer excellent durability in the most difficult of working conditions.
