Cold store clothing guide

Arco garments are made with double layers of 3M Thinsulate Wadding, keeping workers warm, comfortable and protected in temperatures above -50°C

Hull, UK: Arco has launched a guide to cold store protection to help businesses understand and choose the correct protective clothing for employees working in cold environments. The Cold Store Protection Guide is available as a download.

Arco has worked with its cold store customers to develop clothing, footwear, gloves, head protection and thermal base layers for workers who operate in cold storage areas.

All garments in the new Arco cold store clothing range satisfy the requirements of EN 342:2004 which determines that adequate protection is provided at temperatures lower than -5°C and also meets EN:340:2003 which specifies ergonomic requirements including weight and comfort, performance requirements and sizing requirements.

Cold store workers can be confident that the garments are robust, hard wearing and water repellent and entirely machine washable, the company says. All the components are tested to perform at low temperatures and have been specifically designed to enable good freedom of movement and to allow for base layers to be worn comfortably.

The garments are made with double layers of 3M Thinsulate Wadding, keeping workers warm, comfortable and protected in temperatures above -50°C.
