Ergodyne Introduces GLoWEAR® Foul Weather Gear
New Gear Keeps Workers Safe, Comfortable In Harsh Weather Conditions
ST. PAUL, Minn. (September 12, 2005) - Ergodyne today introduced new rain and thermal foul weather gear to its popular line of GLoWEAR® High-Visibility Apparel. The new gear shields workers from rain, sleet, snow, cold, and wind while keeping them conspicuous on the job with high-visibility, ANSI-certified materials. Breathable fabrics and a high-quality design ensure a comfortable fit, allowing workers to move freely on the job site.
The new collection includes a rain jacket, rain pant, thermal jacket, thermal pant, and a 4-in-1 jacket with detachable sleeves. Each item has a polyester weatherproof outer shell that uses a breathable PU material and ANSI 107-certified 3M(TM) Scotchlite(TM) reflective tape. The rain gear has a polyester mesh lining and the thermal pieces feature a 100-gram 3M(TM) Thinsulate(TM) lining. All of the jackets are Class 3-certified and the pants are Class-E certified.
"There is a real industry need for high-quality foul weather gear," explained Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. "Our customers told us they needed a more complete apparel alternative. The new foul weather line accomplishes this by putting the best of weather-protection, visibility and comfort together in one product."
Ergodyne is leaping ahead of the industry standard by exceeding water-repellency and breathability requirements throughout this line. The new gear also uses more reflective tape than required by the standard to make certain workers stay visible - no matter what the weather conditions.
Ergodyne's new foul weather gear will be available to the market in early November. Each item can be customized with a company logo, safety symbol or other design and, as with all GLoWEAR products, one price applies to all sizes.
"The addition of foul weather gear makes GLoWEAR one of the most comprehensive high-visibility lines in the industry," said Votel. "We're excited to continue providing new options in worker safety gear and the customer response to date has been overwhelmingly positive."
Introduced in the summer of 2004, GLoWEAR® High-Visibility Apparel is available in all ANSI-certified and non-certified classifications. The products meet a complete range of conspicuity and safety standards through rugged construction and the use of the highestquality materials, such as 3M(TM) Scotchlite(TM) reflective tapes.
Ergodyne has pioneered and led the development of products for worker safety, comfort, and productivity in the U.S., Canada and Europe for more than 20 years. During that time, the company has built a complete line of specialty products for discriminating trades men and women.
