FABRICS Our fabrics need to work hard. They need to protect and be comfortable, stretch and be durable, perform and be skin friendly. Great care and consideration is given to the selection of each and every fabric that is used across the entire range.
Modacrylic fibers provide inherent flame resistance, excellent dimensional stability and high elastic properties which allow garments to retain their shape. High cotton content gives the fabric comfort, warmth and a soft handle. Carbon fiber woven into the fabric gives inherent anti-static properties.
This inherently flame resistant Portflame Plus™ fabric offers luxurious comfort and is ideal for hot climates. The special viscose blend provides outstanding ARC protection rarely achieved on lightweight fabrics. Constructed using 50% Viscose, 30% Modacrylic, 18% Aramid, 2% Anti-Static, Portflame Plus™ is available in 5.5oz.
Bizflame® is a proprietary flame resistant finish which, when applied to fabric, gives excellent flame resistance. The carbon fiber yarns make the garments antistatic.
BizWeld is a flame-resistant, cotton fabric, globally available and engineered for maximum performance, comfort and durability. This high-technology fabric is used with confidence by thousands of workers in the welding industry and allied industries.
Made with 300 Denier 100% polyester yarn, this is a tough fabric for tough conditions. 300D fabric has superb abrasion and tear resistance. The double polyurethane (PU) coating on the inside makes the fabric durable and waterproof, and the outer has a water and stain repellent coating which helps keep the garment clean.
Kingsmill fabrics have been constructed to a high specification and is the ideal choice for your workwear needs. They have excellent dye retention, tensile and tear strength and a high pilling resistance. Garments made from a Kingsmill fabric have a UPF rating of over 40+ so will block 98% of the UV rays which fall on the garment.
This durable, stretchable fabric is tear resistant, anti-fungal, oil, fat, diesel and grease resistant and can be easily wiped clean. All garments are finished with high frequency welded seams ensuring maximum water-resistance.
This high performance fabric has been engineered to provide a technical barrier against the elements providing the maximum waterproof, breathable and windproof protection. The microporous fabric delivers exceptional stretch characteristics. The exterior fabric surface is treated with a Texpel finish to protect against water and oil stains.

MADE FOR WOMEN FIT FOR PURPOSE When creating protective wear for women, our designers are focused on reducing risk and increasing comfort, allowing workers to do their job unhindered. Garments are designed in line with average women’s measurements such as height and arm length, thus reducing the risk of tripping or snagging. Additional tailoring around the waist and hips ensures maximum comfort over long periods of time.
