Blaklader to launch multi-certified product range designed for tough conditions
Blaklader is now venturing heavily into workwear for tough and hazardous working conditions with the launch of a new line called 'Multinorm'. The collection provides maximum protection for skilled workers such as industrial workers, electricians, welders and other groups exposed to electric hazards, fire and heat hazards, liquid chemicals or tough outdoor environments.
All garments are certified according to European standards and have the same high quality, function and design as other workwear from Blaklader.
"The new collection is a clear effort to meet the demands of our customers and to offer a major modern concept in terms of safety garments," says Peter Monhage, Blaklader's Sweden Sales Manager. "The Multinorm collection gives customers all of the certified standards required in a single garment, which is unique on the market. We want to be at the cutting edge of all types of workwear, and this is just the beginning of our developments in the field of protective clothing."
The collection has been designed in close cooperation with some of the company's largest customers. Together, they have carried out a review of needs and functional requirements such as pockets, materials and fits, but also of what protection is required to ensure safer work. All garments in Blaklader's Multinorm collection meet the EN visibility, flame resistance, welding, electric arc and static electricity standards. The winter garments are also certified against light chemicals, rain and cold.
"It is important for all of our workwear to be based on the customer's needs - and particularly so for this line. Our goal is to design garments that are functional and comfortable to wear, yet which provide maximum protection to all skilled workers who are exposed to hazardous situations on a daily basis. The new protective clothing is just as comfortable and flexible to work in as our other workwear", says Lene Jul, designer and product developer at Blaklader, who is responsible for the collection.
The garments will be available in stock in January 2013, are certified for good visibility and designed with reflectors that are visible from all directions.
