G&K unveils new vented FR uniforms to cool off heat stress

Aug '14
G&K Services, Inc. a leading provider of uniforms and facility services programs, has introduced a new line of vented flame resistant (FR) uniforms, as well as FR knit garments, providing cooler, more comfortable options for companies to outfit their workforce in flame resistant clothing. G&K’s new vented FR uniforms also feature enhanced visibility striping, offering added protection and safety for employees operating in limited light conditions.

“Heat stress is a very real concern for people whose jobs require flame resistant clothing,” said Dave Euson, G&K’s Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “G&K’s new, cooler FR uniforms will provide relief for people working in extreme heat conditions. We’re excited to add these products to our wide range of flame resistant solutions.”

G&K’s FR vented enhanced visibility coveralls and work shirts are made with lightweight 4.5 ounce GlenGuard FR fabric. They feature two flame resistant mesh vents on the back, along with under arm vents for improved air flow. The new FR knit garments are manufactured with a moisture wicking fabric which provides more breathability for the wearer. These new products are available now for G&K’s customers in the United States.

Every year, thousands of workers in the U.S. become ill from exposure to heat. Heat stress occurs as the body attempts to control its temperature and is typically brought on during physical labor in hot temperatures. G&K Services is hosting a free webinar to educate businesses and their employees on heat stress relief and FR clothing.
