ORWELL – a game changer for Flame Resistant Hi-Vis Orange Polo Shirts
New to the HAZTEC® range this season is ORWELL – the latest in a series of innovative product launches from Hazchem Safety Ltd.
Why the Industry needs ORWELL
As many users of Inherent Flame Resistant workwear would know, the Hi-Vis Orange was not initially available due to technical constraints in achieving all the required European norms within a single fabric and with the extra requirements for GO/RT 3279 (now RIS-3279-TOM), the required UK standard for workers on or around Railways.
The first products to the market were Woven fabrics, used for Trousers, Jackets, and Coveralls. The knitted fabrics for Polo Shirts and Sweatshirts followed later, and whilst the most popular fabric on the market used for polo shirts is soft, it is a far cry from what we generally regard as a Pique knit – the fabric we all know and understand in leisurewear polo shirts.
ORWELL solves this challenge and Hazchem Safety brings to you in 2021 a new fabric replicating a superior knit that is comfortable to wear and also features Chevron style reflective tape that flexes with you as you wear the garment.
