Pionér workwear range set to be a game changer
Ballyclare announce series of new product innovations to support one of their best-known brands
WORKWEAR manufacturers Ballyclare Ltd have announced a forthcoming series of new product developments that are being introduced to support one of their best-known brands – Pionér.
The Pionér range, which is said to be one of the highest-quality and certified workwear ranges available on the market, provides protection in arc flash applications up to 41kcal as a single layer solution.
New product developments include hi-vis two-tone yellow/navy and orange garments that meet RISQ TOM standards, allowing the Pionér range to provide full anti-static and arc protection to wearers across a wide range of industrial sectors.
‘Pionér has been available from Ballyclare for a few years and has earned a high degree of brand loyalty thanks to its enviable reputation for quality,’ explained Ballyclare sales and marketing director, Roger Foster.
‘We felt it was time to introduce some exciting new developments and innovations which would refocus attention on the brand, underline its suitability to various emerging sectors, and specifically satisfy the growing demand from arc flash environments.’
The Pionér range is available through a comprehensive network of specially selected independent, regional and national distributors. ‘These outlets provide expert advice on safety matters and they understand both the importance of CAT 3 life-saving solutions and the added value the Pionér brand offers,’ added Mr Foster.
‘Ballyclare are one of very few manufacturers to offer Article 11B-compliant garments and we work hard with our distributors to drive awareness and knowledge of safety in the markets we supply.’
The Pionér range is designed to provide rugged and reliable protection for both male and female wearers who find themselves at the mercy of the elements, or working with heavy machinery in dangerous and hazardous conditions.
The range includes a wide variety of coveralls, comfort trousers, cargo trousers and outerwear jackets and ensembles, in winter and summer weights. Customers can select from a number of flame-retardant, anti-static, arc and hi-vis options. The range also includes flame-retardant base layer garments such as long johns, tops and balaclavas.
‘This is only the start of the Pionér developments,’ said Mr Foster. ‘We’re working alongside some of the most innovative fibre producers and weavers in the UK and Europe to introduce a number of new innovations, and we already have other new developments ready to be launched this summer which many people will regard as genuine ‘game changers’ for the arc flash industries.’
