Cold Store Clothing for Untroubled Working..
Also for the fresh food area, all the materials must be perfectly attuned to each other. The medium thermal insulation offers optimal protection. The light, robust and flexible material ensures a comfortable climate and carefree work in cool rooms.
With us you can order workwear especially for work in the cold store or freezer that will keep you safely warm and enable you to perform at your best even in the cold. Similar to winter workwear and thermal clothing, cold storage clothing is made of certain materials with insulating properties that help you to stay in your cool workplace for longer than a few minutes and prevent hypothermia.
Cold store clothing is worn to protect against cool environments. The clothing protects down to temperatures of -5 degrees Celsius. It can be used both outdoors and indoors.
Cold store clothing is specially designed to be able to work in cool environments for extended periods of time. Special clothing is needed for temperatures from 10 to -5 degrees Celsius. Our certified cold store clothing protects the wearer from temperatures of 10°C and below. The European standard EN 14058 specifies these requirements and test methods for protective clothing against cool environments.
Temperature-appropriate workwear in the cold storage or chiller saves the wearer from many risks. The lower the temperatures, the higher the health risk and the more important cold storage clothing is. It is specially designed to work in cool and fresh environments for longer periods of time and is mandatory in many professions or in many companies as part of occupational health and safety.
The choice of cold room clothing depends on the ambient temperature at the workplace, the duration of cold exposure and the degree of physical exertion. A workplace analysis must be carried out to ensure that the correct clothing is worn to protect against the cold.
Optimal protection with cold store clothing is only ensured if it is worn correctly. Normal jackets or vests alone are often not enough. In combination with chiller bib trousers and brace trousers, however, nothing stands in the way of reliable protection against the cold. Of course, the head, hands and feet must also be protected from cooling down, which is why warm caps as headgear and cold protective gloves as work gloves are also counted among the necessary workwear in cold temperatures. The wearer must be able to make all the physical movements necessary for their job without significant restrictions. Clothing that is too tight or too loose can also have a negative effect on thermal insulation - too little air circulates in clothing that is too tight, while too much cold air penetrates between layers of clothing that are too loose.
The European standard EN 14058 specifies the requirements and test methods for the performance characteristics of garments for protection against the effects of cool environments with temperatures above -5°C. These are not only low air temperatures, but also humidity and wind speed. Cold protective clothing systems are excluded from this standard. The protective effects and requirements for footwear, gloves and separate headgear are not within the scope of this standard.
