Workwear Industries Group PTY LTD offers an extensive range of personal cooling products, using evaporative and phase change technology. The Progard cooling products range is aimed specifically at cooling and reducing heat stress.
Progard cooling products include cooling vests, cooling neck ties and helmet cooling neck shades. Produced by Techniche International, they incorporate state of the art evaporative and phase change technology.
Evaporative Cooling Technology works by combining water with HyperKewl Fabric to create garments that gradually release water through evaporation to keep the wearer cool yet surprisingly dry. Another feature is the choice of styles. These include a high visibility cooling vest and a lightweight sports cooling vest.
To go with the cooling vests there are also evaporative cooling neck ties and helmet head/neck shade cooling accessories available.
Phase Change Technology uses specially designed inserts with Phase Change Material (PCM), which releases long-lasting, temperature-specific (14º C), cooling.
The phase change vests in the range include hi-vis with reflective tape, and fire retardant cool vests. Chill vests using phase change technology are lighter than traditional ice vests and will cool for longer at a more regulated temperature without condensation or freezer burn.
PCM vests are not only effective to wear as an outer garment, but perfect for wearing underneath protective coveralls, especially in encapsulated suits. The FR PCM vest is ideal for use where fire is a hazard and fire retardant clothing is needed.
