Ergodyne Launches New Cooling Towel Sizes and Colors

Press release date: March 11, 2014

St. Paul, Minn. - Ergodyne has announced today the expansion of the Chill-Its® Evaporative Series featuring a variety of new options of their top-selling Cooling Towel (CT). Utilizing the same advanced PVA technology workers know and love, the expanded line offers new colors as well as different sizes and ways to wear the CT – all with the same goal in mind: to cool workers on the job and combat the dangerous effects of heat stress.

"We have been banging the heat stress drum for several years now and have no plans to slow down," said Tom Votel, president and CEO. "According to the BLS, heat remains the number one killer within weather-related deaths. Clearly, this is an important, life-threatening issue and our new additions provide easy, portable solutions to keep workers cool, safe, and productive on the job."

Specifically, the new additions include:
6602 Cooling Towel Color Additions
6603 Cooling Towel Band
6717CT Hard Hat Pad w/ Shade w/ Cooling Towel
6715CT Hard Hat Pad w/ Cooling Towel
6717FR Flame Resistant Hard Hat Pad w/ Shade

The popular 6602 Cooling Towel is now available in five different colors (blue, hi-vis lime, pink, orange, and gray) and the new 6603 Cooling Towel Band is one-third the size of a traditional cooling towel offering less bulk with the same cooling power. The 6717CT and 6715CT conveniently attach to a hard hat suspension system, and for any workers needing FR protection, the 6717FR is designed with Modacrylic cotton blend FR fabric (meets ASTM F1506 and F2302 Flame Resistant requirements).

"Keeping cool on the job shouldn't be complicated," said Adria Hardy, product manager. "Activation of any of these models is quick and easy - simply place the cooling towel under water (any temp) for one minute and you will have hours of sweet cooling relief."

Ideal for outdoor and indoor workers battling heat, fatigue, and FR risks on the job, the new Chill-Its® Cooling Products are available now at all authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information or to find out where to buy, visit www.ergodyne.com or call 800-225-8238 // +1 651-642-9889.
