G&K’s new safety work wear assortment provides “protection you can see” by protecting workers from the hazards of arc flash, flash fire, combustible dust, or molten metal, while offering greater visibility in low light conditions. The FR enhanced visibility line consists of pants, shirts, coveralls and jackets in both UltraSoft® and GlenGuard® FR fabric options, offering protection, durability, comfort and value. G&K can supply these uniforms through a variety of customized programs.

"Our new flame resistant enhanced visibility uniforms offer businesses and their employees improved protection and safety," said Dave Euson, G&K’s Vice President of Marketing and Sales. "These uniforms are ideal for workers who require FR garments, but currently have to layer on visibility vests in limited light conditions. Now, G&K offers those workers a single uniform which provides all the protection and safety they need and deserve.“
