Product Focus: Women's PPE

High-visibility apparel line


Several garments in the GloWear Hi-Vis Apparel Line are now available in an extra-small size. These additions were made in response to a new provision in the updated ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 standard that permits a “smallest size” exception to the minimum area requirements for background materials used in Type R Class 2 and 3 garments. This exception will allow female workers (among others) to no longer worry about a work shirt or vest drooping past their knees and potentially catching in equipment or machinery.
