  • How Does Waterproof Clothing Work?

    In the past waterproof clothing was uncomfortable and heavy, however developments in the technology of waterproof clothing has now positioned it as a must have item that should be included in everybody’s wardrobe. The design of waterproof clothing now allows perspiration to escape from the skin whilst simultaneously preventing rainwater from getting to your skin. This is completed by a process of thermodynamics by which one layer of material repels water whilst the other absorbs humidity produced from the skin.

     The Bump Cap

    Lighter than the hard hat, the bump cap is a lightweight hat with a similar design to a baseball cap. To give workers that extra safety the bump cap has an internal bump guard to give protection where the worker is at risk from scraping or bumping one’s head. The cap also has an internal foam pad for comfort with a Velcro adjuster to the rear of the cap so it can be fitted to an individual’s head size. It is worth noting that although the bump cap is a useful piece of protective equipment, due to its fragile structures it will not provide protection to larger impacts.  Continue reading
