Chill-Its® Cooling Products

St. Paul, Minn. (May 24, 2006) – Increased exposure to heat and traffic congestion associated with summer projects means workers need greater protection and comfort from their work gear. Ergodyne today introduces three new products to help keep workers cool and safe this summer.

Ergodyne’s GloWEAR® Ranger Hat, an ANSI 107-class headwear product, offers construction, public works, DOT, utility and other outdoor workers greater safety and protection from the elements. Offered in high-visibility lime or orange, the ranger hats are made of ANSI-certified 150D oxford polyester and include a one-inch level 2 ANSI-certified tape strip with contrasting colors around their wide brim. Mesh venting side panels offer additional cooling properties. Ranger hats are available in two sizes – S/M and L/XL.

ProFlex® Hi-Vis Orange Mesh Gloves offer workers added protection and comfort with abrasion-resistant textured PVC on the palm and fingers, a PVC-reinforced thumb/index finger saddle, Amara synthetic leather palm and fingers, padded knuckles and reinforced fingertips. Workers’ hands stay cooler in the breathable, mesh backed-gloves. The gloves also include a breathable neoprene cuff with hook-and-loop closure and a terry thumb wipe. 3M Scotchlite tape zones on back and wrist increase worker visibility on the job. Ergodyne ProFlex® hi-vis mesh gloves are available in S, M, L, XL and 2XL.

ProFlex® Hi-Vis Stop-Go Gloves are designed to help workers direct traffic flow. Made of breathable, nylon spandex stretch fabric, the gloves feature a lime-green hi-gloss tape zone on the back signaling “go” and an orange-red high-gloss tape octagon on the palm signaling “stop.” With their half-finger design, Stop-Glo Gloves can be worn over other gloves and are available in two sizes – S/M and L/XL.

“Ergodyne is always looking for better ways to keep workers safe and comfortable year-round,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. “We know that summer is a tough season for outdoor workers so we wanted to offer gear to stay cooler and more visible on the worksite.”
