A NEW range of high visibility, flexible workwear which reportedly stretches to follow the movements of the body giving maximum comfort in any work situation has been introduced by Danish workwear specialists ENGEL.
Called ‘Safety – Super-Stretch’ the collection consists of various garments with elastic fibres woven into a polyester and cotton mix. Says the company: ‘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 as not only does the high visibility workwear provide protection throughout the day or night, it 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 is also being offered during 2021 in what the company describes as 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.’
