Carrington Textiles, one of Europe’s largest producers of versatile workwear fabrics, has launched a range of waterproof products. They have been developed to meet a growing demand from garment manufacturers for fabrics that will improve workers safety and wellbeing in outdoor environments.
The product line includes Denali Pro 2.5, lightweight twill microfibre polyester base fabric, laminated with breathable hydrophilic PU membrane technology.
The range also includes FlameStat Satin, which is both hi-vis and inherently flame retardant.
Carrington has also created the Alaska Pro range of Cordura-based products. Available in hi-vis orange and yellow, these fabrics have an extremely high tear strength – making them ideal for active outdoor workers, in sectors including the emergency services and the UK’s rail network.
“We’ve made several R&D breakthroughs in recent years which means workers no longer need to compromise on protective qualities, comfort or durability when working in wet conditions, said Neil Davey, sales director at Carrington Textiles. “We will continue to work alongside garment manufacturers and suppliers like Cordura to produce fabrics that will improve workers safety and wellbeing in outdoor environments.”
