HI-VISION parka with DIN EN 20471-compliant direct laminate

New signal colour certified according to the latest standard for high-visibility clothing and certified as direct laminate

Thalhausen, 4/11/2013 – It's this autumn's highlight and a first for this material and colour combination: the fashionable HI-VISION parka from HB Schutzbekleidung in fluorescent, DIN EN 20471-compliant orange-red. The highly eye-catching, attractive colour, which is a perfect partner for navy blue, is currently available exclusively from HB as a direct laminate.

Significant amounts of expertise have been invested in the new design: manufacturing fabrics that conform to multiple standards and, in particular, flame-retardant clothing in this colour class, is a real technical challenge. The long-established company, seated in Thalhausen/Germany, uses breathable direct laminate with a weight of 375 g/m², which is modelled after the tried-and-tested material of its HI-VISION parka in fluorescent, highly reflective yellow.

The extremely draught-proof and water-repellent material blend protects people from arcs, fire, sparks, radiant heat and electrostatic discharge. The fluorescent orange-red design fulfils the criteria of six standards: the new DIN EN 20471 Class 2, DIN EN 61482-1-2 Class 2, DIN EN 1149-5, DIN EN ISO 11612 A1/B1/C1, DIN EN ISO 11611 Class 1 A1 and DIN EN 343 Class 3/3.

With its new orange-red HI-VISION parka, HB is quite literally making its mark and offering ideal all-round protection for anyone who works outside and is exposed to particular sources of danger. Wearers are reliably protected against wind, weather and hazards, and are not only easily visible, but also well dressed. A matching hood with identical protective properties is available separately. For additional protection against cold, the parka can be combined with the FR inner fleece from HB.
