OXNARD, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - Workrite Uniform Company, Inc., a leading provider of flame-resistant (FR) workwear worldwide, has recently unveiled a new flame-resistant (FR) outerwear line featuring 3M™ Thinsulate™ Platinum Insulation, ideal FR protection for cold-weather conditions as it provides extra warmth without extra garment weight.
Thinsulate FR is 44% warmer compared to the standard insulated FR workwear with modacrylic quilting systems*. Incorporating feedback from their customers, Workrite brings comfort, functionality and protection to the Thinsulate outerwear line while maintaining their trademark FR quality and durability, even through home and industrial launderings.
"Our customers needed FR garments that not only kept them warm, but kept them mobile," says Carol Krebs, general manager for industrial workwear at Workrite. "We listened, and in working with Westex™ and 3M, we have a new line of outerwear that can stand up to both the elements of cold climates and the requirements of these workers' jobs."
The navy duck Thinsulate outerwear line includes an insulated field coat, hood and bib overalls. Images and specific product features of the line are available upon request.
