West Chester Protective Gear launches value-priced, high-visibility apparel line

Building on its 40-year legacy of leadership in work and safety gloves and apparel, West Chester Protective Gear is introducing a new line of high-quality, high-visibility garments, distinguished by a broad range of styles, customization options and low price points.

The product line includes vests, shirts, outerwear and rainwear, designed for a variety of construction and work environments: roadways, maintenance areas, public safety zones and factories. All vests and shirts feature moisture wicking to keep workers dry and comfortable. They are available in classic, breakaway and surveyor styles with many color block and reflective tape patterns. Standard and oversized pockets allow workers to store smaller cell phones, pens and notebooks, as well as larger tablet-sized electronics. Ladies’ vest sizes are also offered.

All West Chester high-visibility garments are independently tested and verified to meet ANSI 107-2015 standards, which set forth the degree of visibility and materials required based on the application and expected risks. West Chester offers all three high-visibility performance classes – ANSI class 3, class 2, class 1 – as well as enhanced-visibility options.

“Choosing the right hi-viz apparel for the job can be tricky, and can be complicated by conditions such as low-light or poor weather,” says Erin Chrostowski, product development specialist at West Chester Protective Gear. “One of the things that makes West Chester stand out is our experienced sales team, who can offer support to help ensure that workers are outfitted in the hi-viz garments that are optimal for their specific applications.”

For companies that want to place logos or wording on their work apparel to help drive business or as a team-building initiative, West Chester’s in-house Custom Shop provides customization in 7 to 10 business days. An online customization portal allows customers to upload logos and save time on the ordering process.

West Chester’s large and well-established supply chain allows the company to deliver this broad range of high-quality products and services at some of the lowest price points in the marketplace. “We expect to have one of the most competitively priced lines of high-visibility apparel in the marketplace, and this launch supports our core value of offering products that protect and keep workers safe,” says Roy Gifford, vice president of marketing at West Chester Protective Gear.
