Protection
Sun Protection 15 Sun Protection 30 Sun Protection 50 Sun Protection 50+

Sun Protection

The ultraviolet radiation trasmitted through a fabric to the skin is measured and given a rating of 15 (min protection), 30 (good protection), 50, 50+ (excellent protection).

Industrial

Industrial Strength

Reinforced stitching, bartacks, rivets and heavy duty fabrics mean Bisley Workwear products with this symbol have been developed for industrial environments or work places.

Static Control

Static Control

Certain natural fibres do not attract static electricity (static neutral) and therefore reduce the risk of an electric shock to the body. 100% Cotton is the most common static control in garments.

AS/NZS 1020:1995

Cold Weather

Cold Weather

Garments designed to keep you warm in cold weather.

Showerproof

Showerproof

Resistant to light rain. Fabric is either treated with an outer coat finish or a waterproof membrane is added to the reverse side of rainwear fabrics. Generally if a garment repels liquid on the outside and is not fully seam sealed on the inside, it is also categorised as showerproof.

Water Resistant

Water Resistant

Water resistant membranes are often added to the reverse side of rainwear fabrics to ensure that no water can penetrate from the outside, water resistant garments are fully seam sealed on the inside keeping you dry in wet weather.

AS 2001.2.18-1987

Bioscience Fresche

Bioscience Fresche®

Fresche® microbial treatment is a highly effective approach to long term control and protection against the growth of bacteria and fungus which causes stubborn odours and stains. Fresche® is invisible when applied, it will not impact or change the colour or feel of the garment. Fresche® is derived from coconut oil - a safe, sustainable and renewable resource.

Moisture Control

Moisture Control

Hydrophilic garments pull perspiration away from your skin to the outer layer of the fabric where it is able to evaporate faster, leaving your skin fresh and without excessive perspiration.

Stain ReGuard

Stain ReGuard

DuPont, the world leader in fibre and fibre treatment technology use their ingenious stain release technology to provide garments with an easy cleaning solution.

Bisley premium Industrial range is designed to withstand industrial washes at 75°C. Using superior imported German dyes for greater colourfastness and super industrial strength reflective tape.

Comfort
Cool Lightweight

Cool Lightweight

We recognise the need for developing lightweight, breathable garments and have added mesh ventilation to key perspiration points on some garments.

X Airflow™

X Airflow™

Bisley's X Airflow™ Technology is based on a 3D cooling system, where the air flows through multiple ventilation points on the garment at key heat stress areas.

Breathable

Breathable

Fabric is breathable or the garment is designed with ventilation

Stretch

Stretch

Built in stretch that allows greater ease of movement when working.

Easy-Fit

Easy-Fit

Whether you're an 'in-between' size or you prefer a comfortable stretch for freedom of movement, garments developed with an easy-fit waist can provide an ergonomic adjustment with no change to look or feel.
