Benefits of High Visibility clothing from Wenaas

  • Capacity always to achieve class 3 – by choosing jointly certified garments, you can put together a product mix of high visibility workwear that suits your own preferences, while remaining confident that you are clearly visible to your colleagues.
  • Consideration has been given to how large a logo surface you can use on all garments without affecting the certification class of the item in question.
  • High visibility trousers are delivered in standard lengths, with the option to extend the length by removing the blue seam at the bottom end of the legs. If you prefer a shorter leg length, please state this when ordering. A simple size system and unique item numbers make it easy to find your size.
  • The high visibility trousers feature wedge-shaped reinforcement at the groin, which improves both durability and comfort. The sleeve design prevents the top from riding up when you are working with your arms raised, while the rib-knit cuffs with thumb grips stop dirt and dust from entering the sleeves.
  • ​​​​​​​The high visibility clothing is Øko-Tex® labeled, which is your guarantee that no allergenic or carcinogenic colourants were used in the production. Cordura fabric (240 g/m2) in hard-wearing areas helps increase the lifetime of the garment. Selected models of our high visibility workwear feature elastic reflectors for increased comfort.
