Europe’s leading trade exhibition covering safety, security and health at work gave us an excellent opportunity to highlight the breadth of our offering to different sectors. At A+A event in Dusseldorf we displayed examples of both our multi-norm and flame-retardant Pionér® workwear, and our Xenon multi-layered and multifunctional fire garments, underlining the extensive experience we have as a major manufacturer and supplier to workwear markets.
Examples of our newly extended Pionér® range were shown at the exhibition. Specifically designed to provide outstanding protection to those working in dangerous conditions and demanding weather environments, the heat-resistant and flame-retardant garments in the Pionér® range include a wide choice of coveralls. cargo trousers, jackets, salopettes and base layer garments.
“We have recently added various new items to this range, including multi-norm high visibility jackets and trousers that have already proved to be very popular in other sectors such as the rail industry, plus various new, flame retardant multi-use jacket and trouser options,” says Ballyclare Managing Director, Carlton Greener.
Also prominent on the Ballyclare stand was our range of Xenon fire garments which have been developed with a strong focus on health and safety matters.
“While the issue of free and easy movement for the wearer was a requirement for the Xenon range, we were primarily concerned to develop garments which provided maximum levels of health and safety protection,” adds Carlton.
“The Xenon with GORE® PARALLON® System garments deliver high levels of thermal protection and help to prevent dangerously high body temperatures. Crucially, they also maintain that level of protection when wet. This reduces the likelihood of heat stress and exhaustion that can impact the firefighter’s decision-making process. It also gives firefighters more time to escape from dangerous situations. Once away from the heat sources, Xenon garments also allow the wearer to cool down quickly, making them more comfortable to wear over long periods.”
A key feature on the stand was our new concept Xenon fire suit which we have recently developed. It combines all the standard Xenon benefits with new fabric, fastenings and design features to create the ultimate in protective, comfortable and reliable firefighting kit.
