A new range of high visibility, flexible workwear – which stretches to follow the movements of the body and give maximum comfort in any work situation – has been introduced by Danish workwear specialists ENGEL.
Called ‘Safety – Super-Stretch,’ the collection consists of a wide variety of garments with elastic fibres woven into a polyester and cotton mix. The strong yet extreme flexibility of the material allows each garment to return to its original shape, thereby retaining all the inherent advantages of their design and style.
Comfort as much as durable practicality is important to any wearer. Not only does the high visibility workwear provide protection throughout the day or night, it also helps reduce tiredness, further minimising the risk of accidents.
The ‘Super-Stretch’ collection, which includes high-vis ‘Safety’ work jackets, trousers, shorts and bib-overalls will also be offered during 2021 in an environmentally friendly, ‘Sustainable-Safety’ version which incorporates 50% regenerated polyester fibres made from recycled plastic bottles.
This method of yarn production with the brand name of ‘REPREVE©’ has been developed by Unifi, one of the world’s most advanced recycling centres. Waterproofs, T-
shirts, sweatshirts and a zipped hoodie using the same material are also due to be added.
The Engel ‘Super-Stretch’ and ‘Sustainable-Safety’ workwear collections are available from MacBlair Builders Merchants throughout Northern Ireland, with all Engel workwear supplied by main distributors Pro-Tec Workwear based in Ballymoney.
