Especially winter days are short, often cloudy, visibility is worse. Anyone working outdoors on streets, roads, or buildings needs warning clothing with reflective materials. “Ideal protective clothing is safe, comfortable and ergonomic,” says Silvia Martens, product manager at MEWY.
A trained textile engineer knows that only one who feels good in his bright orange or yellow clothing is also consistently wearing. The trouser waist or jacket sleeve should, therefore, be comfortable and personalized for physical activity. Important pockets or tool loops and other needs are also important.
The warning reflective clothing must comply with ISO 20471. All safety requirements are met by the certified MEWA clothing collection “Dynamic Reflect”, which offers a wide variety of combinations. There are fluorescent orange or yellow jackets, trousers with pockets and lace. Everything is in accordance with ISO 20471, Class 2. In case the jacket is worn together with trousers or lace pants, it is a 3rd class. MEWA also offers sweatshirts, polo shirts, and t-shirts in fluorescent yellow or orange colors.
Regular checking is vital
Fluorescent substances as well as reflective tapes, after a certain period of time, lose their wearing, dirt and mechanical stress on their functionality. That’s why regular clothing check is necessary. “In any case, the cleaning of the warning clothing should be entrusted to a specialized textile service provider. This is the only way to ensure professional clothing treatment, recognition of any defects and its professional removal, “says the product manager of MEWY.
MEWA is increasingly focusing on human-machine cooperation and is starting to use a combined test procedure. The camera system examines the garment with special software and evaluates its status with the algorithm. Afterward, employees once again check each piece of clothing for further use. If reflective tapes or reflective fabric no longer fulfill a protective purpose, these parts are repaired or replaced. Clothes can continue to fulfill their protective and warning functions.
The warning reflective garments must comply with ISO 20471. All safety requirements are met by the certified MEWA clothing collection “Dynamic Reflect”, which offers a wide variety of combinations.
