Clothes wear better and longer when they fit correctly. Sleeves which are too long or clothes which are too loose may be caught up by machinery to injure the worker. Too tight a fit can restrict the person’s mobility. Garments have different sizing requirements. How to measure The EN 340 prescribes how body sizes have to be measured. NOTE: In view of the fact that the majority of our work garments are of US origin we suggest you measure all dimensions in inch. Care for Workwear Proper care enhances the lifetime of garments and helps to benefit from their physical properties for an extended period. Therefore, each garment is properly labelled inside, where the appropriate care instructions are shown. The following clothing care guide helps to identify the pictograms shown in the labels. When these care instructions are adhered to carefully, garments will look smarter for a longer lifetime. High Visibility Garment The dirtier a hi-vis garment gets, the less effective it becomes. Make sure that garments are washed regularly, or thrown away when they become too worn. Do not allow sections to be cut off of hi-vis garments – the level of protection they provide depends on the areas of fluorescent and retro reflective materials included within the garment. Make sure that the garment is worn fastened whenever possible to ensure maximum protection and reduce the risk of entanglement with moving machinery etc. Emblems and Logos MERCANTA can supply emblems or logos as per your design and specifications to enhance the company’s corporate image and affix them onto garments. The traditional emblem is a fabric background with an embroidered design or lettering and has an embroidered border. A logo is a printed design or lettering with an embroidered border. Logos cost approximately 30 % less and are clearer in detail than emblems. Moreover, heat transferred logos are available. Both embroidered and printed designs can be attached directly onto the garment with no background material, too. A) Neck Size Measure neck as illustrated, holding tape snugly.
