High visibility SAFE boilersuits for multi-function jobs
Nov '12
Boilersuits were first worn by workers maintaining coal-fired boilers; a one-piece suit that avoided the potential problem of loosened soot entering the lower half of one's clothing.

What is less known is that Japanese politicians have used boilersuits to convey an image of preparedness. More commonly known, is that they are now used across the Industry and for a variety of job functions.

High Vis boilersuits in particular are used by those working on roads, near railways or at night, where visibility is a concern. MASCOT SAFE range does what it says. It keeps you SAFE. All clothing in the SAFE range is certified to EN471, the European Norm for high visibility warning clothing.

Ideal for winter and those long dark nights, the MASCOT TOMBOS winter boilersuit, from the SAFE ARCTIC range, comes in fluorescent orange or yellow with vertical and horizontal reflective tapes; additional reflective tapes on the shoulders ensure visibility even when kneeling. The MASCOT TOMBOS is certified to EN 471 - class 3/2, EN 343 - class 3/2 and EN 342 - class 3/2, meaning it is breathable, wind and waterproof. It is made with Mascotex, a waterproof laminate that is placed inside the polyester outer of the garment. It is this laminate that provides the waterproof properties to the fabric. The Mascotex logo assures you of 100% waterproof protection - ideal for those working in harsh, extreme weather and winter environments.

The MASCOT TOMBOS has numerous inner and outer pockets and comes complete with a detachable lined hood with adjustable drawstring. The zip and storm flap on the legs allows the wearer to easily remove footwear. The MASCOT TOMBOS has a warm pile lining in the body and quilt lining (welded, not stitched, for extra durability) in the sleeves and legs for extra protection, promising to keep you warm and snug and well protected.
