Hi-Vis Additions

St. Paul, Minn. (Feb. 21, 2017) – Ergodyne today added new products to its GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel Line in preparation for summer outdoor work. These new garments provide ANSI-compliant visibility to prevent struck-by accidents and are packed with features to help workers beat the heat.

“These new products continue to set GloWear® apart,” said Andy Olson, product director, Ergodyne. “From the lightweight breathability of 3M Scotchlite’s segmented Comfort Trim reflective material to smart, innovative details such as reflective binding to further enhance nighttime visibility beyond standard compliance, we’re excited to offer these new hi-vis solutions.”

New GloWear® products include:

Each item is made of as an ANSI-compliant polyester breathable knit for heat stress management along with other unique features. The 8216BA’s breakaway design prevents entanglement; the 8246Z has reflective binding for improved nighttime visibility; the heavy-duty 8253HDZ has webbing reinforcements and ample storage; the black fronts and accents of the 8280BK and 8281BK hide dirt and wear; and the 8005 keeps sun off the neck without trapping heat. See full product features and benefits below.

“For over a decade, GloWear® has been keeping workers safe and seen on the job,” said Tom Votel, president & CEO, Ergodyne. “We strive to innovate in both design and materials, and this new collection of vests, shirts and accessories built specifically for summer is no exception.”
