      Personal protective equipment for winter


      The 3-layer principle.

      Anyone who wants to power through their work needs to feel comfortable. Freezing, sweating, wet skin or unpleasant odours are therefore not wanted. The ideal combination of individual layers of clothing and materials allows you to work in maximum comfort.

      1. Reliable (weather protection):
      Breathable outer layer of sturdy, easy-care material is the perfect protection
      against rain, wind and cold.
      2. Warm (insulation):
      Insulating intermediate layer protects the body against cooling down and dissipates
      moisture away.
      3. Dry (moisture transport):
      Base layer for optimum transport of moisture. Ensures the body stays dry,
      even during strenuous work.

      The clear advantage: Depending on the weather conditions you can remove a layer or add a layer.
