HiVis Extreme – the collection where you can lift, sit, stretch or twist without the workwear preventing your movement.
Wenaas new visibility collection HiVis Extreme has been developed in collaboration with people working in the construcion industy. The combination of Wenaas own experience and competence with the workers knowledge made it possible to develop an ergonomic workwear line made in 4-way stretch for maximum mobility. This to encrease optimal mobility for the user without compromising functionality, fabric quality and color reproduction.
FOCUS ON THE WOMEN
The curved garments have their own design that is different from the men’s/unisex models with curving and flattering cuts that highlight the female shape.
Stretch products are a perfect opportunity to get a good fit on women’s models. 4-way stretch is very adaptable for the ladies’ shape. This is ending the epoke where women are swimming in large clothes that are made for completely different bodies than theirs. The collection has been nicknamed “Curved” which is recognizable on the outside of the clothes.
NEW AND INNOVATIVE COLLECTION
The HiVis Extreme collection mainly consists of large panels with stretch fabric with only areas that are reinforced on the outside of the stretch material. This provides superb comfort and optimal moveablility when wearing the garments.
THE RIGHT FABRICS
There are many things that must fit together in such a development: weight, weave, structure and qualities.
HiVis and 4-way stretch is a difficult combination. This has something to do with the composition of the fabric – how the different fibers manage to reproduce color.
In areas with wear or in areas where stretch is not appropriate e.g. to keep a shape in a waistband, we use non-stretch fabric. These withstand more of a stretch and hold their shape better. Reinforcements we use are based on nylon.
DETAILS FOR INCREASED COMFORT
For this new collection the fabrics have been really important. Weenas have thought about weight, weaving, composition and qualities. For HiVis Extreme thay have found the best combination of 4-way stretch and fabric with very good qualities when it comes to reproducing color. The 4-way stretch is also experienced not to be as cold on cold days, such as stretch often can be due to a large proportions of synthetic materials.
