New PPE from Ballyclare
Latest protective clothing range designed to meet the needs of hi-vis sector and the modern worker
BALLYCLARE Ltd have launched their DryShell line of hi-vis PPE, providing customers with a broader price range for foul weather garments. The new PPE range comprises two types of jacket – an over-trouser and boiler suit.
All the garments have been designed to reflect the changing face of today’s hi-vis sector and the needs of the modern worker. DryShell uses an advanced yet very cost-effective, high-performance breathable fabric that creates an extremely strong waterproof barrier while remaining soft, flexible and lightweight for wearer comfort.
The layered fabric features a breathable membrane to stop wind, rain and sleet passing through but allowing moisture to escape by absorbing and dissipating sweat through the diffusion of water vapour molecules. This keeps wearers warm and dry and allows them to work more comfortably for longer.
All the garments in the DryShell range are approved to GO/RT 3279, EN ISO 20471:2013 and meet the requirements of EN343: 2003/A1 2007 Class 3. They are also suitable for industrial laundering if required.
Ballyclare say the new DryShell garments will be joined by two soon-to-be-launched products offering multiple levels of protection and comfort to welders and other workers who are exposed to flash fire and electrical arcing. The GO/RT-compliant garments will meet all the standards covering flame retardancy, calorific value and static and chemical splash.
In 2014 Ballyclare assimilated into new parent group Uniform Brands Ltd. The business now owns the complementary Pionér brand of high-quality flame-retardant clothing and the Faithful brand of made-to-order workwear.
