High visibility


Pontetorto spa produces fabrics for highly sophisticated workwear, the result of constant research and experimentation in conformance with the current and most advanced safety standards.

The main characteristics are reached with the use of highly technical fabrics and membranes that, in combination with special chemical treatments, guarantee protective performance in case of different kinds of thermal hazards.
The special composition of these fabrics confer confort and softness despite their extraordinary wear and abrasion resistance.
Using a combination of innovative yarns and special chemical treatments Pontetorto spa supplies high visibility fabrics, flame retardants, antistatics, breathables, water and stain repellents and fabrics with higher resistance to laundering.
The high visibility fabrics are made with fluorescent colors in compliance with the norms for high visibility EN20471 reaching considerable color fastness to laundering, perspiration and rubbing.
The range of flame retardant fabrics, by means of highly technological yarns, protect from flames, convective and radiant heat (EN11612), from the thermal effects of electric arc (EN61428), and moreover offer permanent antistatic properties. (EN1149)
After years of research and experimentation, Pontetorto has been able to fine tune synthetic jersey pile fabrics in single or multi layers, with windproof membranes that can be industrially washed up to 95° C., tested for over 100 washing (ISO 15797 – method B).
The most innovative product in the Workwear collection is doubtless a three layer softshell with smooth outer side, antistatic membrane as a middle layer, with a certified flame retardant pile on the inside surface, with extraelectric arc protection, industrially washable at 75° C and in high visibility colors.
