The conditions you work in leave no room for compromises or doubt – especially in terms of potential risks from sparks, heat and flame. That's why we created a range of flame retardant clothing that combines an outstanding level of protection with the functionality and on-the-job comfort you expect from Snickers Workwear.
The result is a collection that fulfils relevant safety norms and the demands of hard working professionals like you. Making every working day a safer, more comfortable experience.
Created to protect.
Every garment is light to the touch and the material is soft, unlike other flame retardant collections that often feature heavy, uncomfortable treated material. This has not been done at the expense of safety, however. All our flame retardant garments fulfil the relevant safety standards set out in EN11612.
The material used in our flame retardant trousers and jackets is specially permeated cotton, designed to protect on contact with flame, convective or radiated heat. Our underwear offers the same level of protection and thanks to the use of advanced material, also delivers outstanding breathability and comfort.
From underwear to a full welding overall, our range of garments represent superior functionality. Pockets and hems are sewn to facilitate easy access for hands and minimise access for sparks or welding bi-products. The trousers offer the most advanced certified knee protection available.
Comfort without compromises.
It would be easy to design flame retardant clothing that sacrifices comfort for heavy, unwieldy materials – but that wouldn't be the Snickers Workwear way. Our range is soft, light, cool and features Twisted Leg™ design and pre-bent sleeves – anything for your comfort and freedom of movement.
