We've been buzzing all month about our new women's line, because we know the time is now to ensure women are outfitted safely and comfortably in the workplace. As you may have seen in Safety + Health magazine's September issue, we want to share some insight with the industry about designing an appropriate women's FR garment program.
The article highlights three key considerations when including women in your FR garment program:

At TECGEN® brand, we know that FR apparel has to be functional more than it is fashionable. But what's functional for some, may not be functional for others. We decided to ask women: what do you dislike about existing unisex FR garments?
With a wide range of responses, we set out on a mission to design women's FR apparel that could help eliminate the inconvenience and hazard of wearing poorly fitted FR apparel on the job. The results?
Our new FR garments for women are designed for an accurate fit, that is comfortable, breathable and functional. They also incorporate a consistant, uniform style for cohesiveness with existing FR garments on the market.
The new women's collection features a uniform shirt and coverall that balance the total comfort triangle: lightweight, breathability and moisture management. The collection is available in all size ranges from extra small to plus sizes.

Available in navy, light blue, khaki and grey.
