UV Protective Clothing

It’s no secret that job sites are extremely diverse. Working on a job site usually involves a range of different jobs to be done. Each of which can present their own hazards. UV protection ensures that you and your crew can stay safe on the job site no matter what situations might come up.

Ultraviolet Radiation or UV are the rays that are produced by the sun. UV rays can wreak havoc on the body and cause a slew of issues including sunburn and skin cancer. The worst part? UV rays reach your body even if it’s cloudy and you can’t see the sun. UV protective clothing acts as a sun shield to protect your body from UV rays. Our selection of UV protection gear includes neck shades and towels with built-in cooling capabilities for those hot days. We’ve also got hats, shirts, and hi-vis gear for when you need UV protection, but visibility is a challenge.

Remember that when picking out hi-vis gear keep in mind the requirements you need to meet for ANSI Standards. Our hi-vis UV protection gear includes Non-ANSI, Class 2, and Class 3 ratings.

Class 2:

Class 2 items are intended for environments that pose a greater risk than those that require a Class 1 traditional safety yellow or orange material. Class 2 apparel is medium sized because of the ANSI requirements. A class 2 article of clothing must have at least 775 inches of safety yellow or orange material and 201 square inches of reflective striping.

Class 3:

Class 3 items are intended for dangerous environments and are typically larger because of the ANSI requirements. They must have 310 square inches of reflective striping and 1,240 inches of safety yellow or orange material.

Non-ANSI:

Non-ANSI rated gear means that it does not meet the requirements set forth by ANSI and should not be used in low light situations where certified hi-vis gear is required.
