What defines the quality of thermal and freezer clothing?
Working performance decreases substantially when the working conditions are harsh. This is especially true in extreme cold, such as outdoors in winter conditions and in cold storage and freezing rooms. In addition to the risks of poor performance, the likelihood of work-related accidents and sick leave increases significantly. Employers understand very well that safe and comfortable thermal and freezer clothing not only provides good protection but also contributes to the prevention of sickness and the reduction of occupational accidents. But how do you determine the quality of thermal and freezer clothing?
Multiple protective layers
A multi-layer garment not only protects against direct cold, but also retains body heat.
Protection against moisture, water and wind
The outer layer of thermal and freezing clothing must protect against wind, rain and moisture. At the same time, moisture from the inside must be able to vaporize. For this purpose polyamide and polyester are excellent materials .
Good thermal insulation ensures that the heat produced by the body is properly retained. The density of padding indicates its insulation value.
In addition to heat, the body also produces perspiration. It is important that this moisture is removed and absorbed in a moisture-absorbing intermediate layer.
Besides protective properties, it is important that thermal and freezer clothing has a long service life. This is reflected in finishing such as reinforced stitching, reinforced knee patches, high-quality zips and press-studs and extra strong collars and cuffs.
