Developed for Industry, high comfort for the wearer
A recent survey by the European Textile Services Association reported that companies expect from their workwear quality, protection from risks, and comfort. In truly Tested to Work style, MASCOT launched a new Industry range of garments to provide get exactly that, and much more. Developed in response to customer demand, in 2010, MASCOT worked with industrial laundries and large end users to develop a modern new alternative for the industrial wearer.
The corporate identity of large industrial end users has also been a goal in the development process. The range is so comprehensive that the warehouse employee, the joiner and the driver can all have workwear to suit their individual needs, yet at the same time, have a uniform, matching appearance. In addition, the lighter weight fabrics make this an ideal range for working indoors.
MASCOT® tests fabrics within its industry range in accordance with ISO 15797 procedure 8B, to the requirements of the European Textile Services Association. ETSA grading is givin on a scale of 1 to 3, 3 being the highest grade.
