Snickers Workwear is now launching it's first collection of certified protective clothing. Thus, the company is a more complete supplier of workwear and protective clothing to the professional occupational categories that have very high demands on the final product.
PROTECWORK - A complete range of protective clothing
Already from the launch, Snickers has a complete range of protective clothing - the clothes are adapted for rain, sun, heat and cold, winter and summer. The garments in the collection are certified for various applications with focus on heat / flame, arctic cold, antistatic and visibility. The number of reported electric accidents increased last year, especially in mining and industry, this is shown in figures from the Swedish Electrical Safety Agency, which means that the investment is timely.
“Clothes should be functional under all weather conditions and for exposed occupational categories within, for example, energy and rail, it's crucial to get fit right from the inside and out. The importance of using the right protective clothing is obvious and in case of accidents it can reduce or eliminate burns and even deaths” said Per Wagnås, Manager for Protective Wear Offer and Operations at Snickers Workwear.
Launch of 65 new models
Snickers Workwear has been working hard since the acquisition of Puvab a year ago, a leading manufacturer of long-lasting and durable protective clothing. Intensive work now allows Snickers Workwear to launch 65 brand new models of protective clothing based on the best of Puvab's 30-year experience combined with Snickers' innovative design.
"With the knowledge and experience from Puvab, Snickers is now a complete brand. The first collection is highly thought out and modern, designed to suit the most important risk environments and to ensure a high level of protection in exposed work situations. We now take a big step with our protective clothing around ergonomics and fitting, the combination of the design and our highly regarded focus on high protection values are unique”, said Wagnås.
