Ballyclare launches high-visibility line Dryshell
Feb '15
UK-based protective workwear maker Ballyclare has launched a new lightweight, foul weather-resistant, high-visibility clothing line named Dryshell.

Designed as per the needs of modern day workers who work against bad weather conditions, the collection is made using cost-effective high performance breathable fabric that not only acts as a strong waterproof barrier but also provides softness and flexibility to the wearer.

With the help of sweat absorbing and dissipating mechanism through diffusion of water vapour molecules, the garments keep the wearer warm and dry for a long time. The layered fabric features a breathable membrane that prevents wind, rain and sleet to pass through.

All the pieces (two jackets, an over-trouser and a boiler suit) from the range are approved to GO/RT 3279, EN ISO 20471:2013 and meet the requirements of EN343: 2003/A1 2007 Class 3. They are also suitable for industrial laundering.

According to a press statement from the brand, the new DryShell garments will be joined with two other soon-to-be-launched product lines that will offer multiple levels of protection and comfort to welders and other rail workers who are exposed to flash fire and electrical arcing. GO/RT compliant, these garments will meet all the standards covering flame retardancy, calorific value, static and chemical splash.

Ballyclare is a designer, manufacturer and distributor of protective workwear clothing. The company has been supplying a comprehensive range of industrial workwear, corporate garments, high visibility and waterproof/foul weather garments for over 20 years. It also provides protective gear to the emergency services and armed forces. (PB)
