Overland Park, Kansas, USA—eVent® fabrics is pleased to welcome Greenham—the UK-based supplier of workwear and personal protection equipment—as it launches its Autumn ’15 collection of protective outerwear and footwear. The inaugural offering features eVent’s Protective line of membranes and fabrics and is available now throughout the Greenham distribution network in the United Kingdom.

The eVent fabrics team will show the new Greenham products at the A+A Show in Dusseldorf, Germany in Hall 11 G24 from October 27-30.

Greenham has positioned eVent Protective as the premium technology in its new special hazard and collections, according to David Cornthwaite, European Sales Leader for eVent fabrics. “Greenham chose eVent for its top-of-the-line outerwear and footwear and this further demonstrates the strength of our technologies for workers who need protection from challenging weather and on-the-job hazards.”

While the U.S.-based eVent fabrics is best known for its patented air permeable and waterproof ePTFE membrane used in high performance consumer brands, the company has, in fact, long served military, police and fire fighting forces around the world with its Protective products. The same technologies and fabrics also meet the needs of workers who count on their outerwear and footwear to keep them dry, comfortable and safe throughout the workday.

eVent Protective membranes and fabrics provide a barrier against workplace hazards and weather. The company’s bi-component Direct Diffusion™ membranes meet the most rigorous specifications tailored for the end use and environment where the products are used. These membranes—typically configured in 3-layer laminates—can be waterproof, windproof and breathable to guard against the weather. But the same technology can also provide protection against hazards such as fire, heat, toxic chemicals, petroleum, bloodborne pathogens and more.

Greenham’s apparel launch features seven pieces with eVent in the KeepSafe XT range—whichincludes high visibility fabrics—and Endurance XT collections. The styles include jackets, hoods, trousers and over trousers, all using eVent Protective membranes and fabrics that comply with workwear and safety specifications.

Greenham is also introducing footwear with eVent Protective membrane technology this Autumn. The launch features four styles in their high performance Tuf XT range, including a low, mid and high cut ankle boot with side zip and a fully metal-free style. These feature safety toecaps and penetration-resistant midsoles.

About eVent® fabrics and eVent membrane technology

Since 1999, eVent fabrics have set the standard for truly air permeable and waterproof membranes in textiles. The technology used to create eVent membranes was invented in the 1990s to improve the pollutant-capturing performance of air filtration systems and give superior protection to industrial machinery. eVent fabrics—found in outdoor, winter sports, cycling and professional apparel and footwear—were the first air permeable and waterproof performance fabrics on the market that let the sweat out™ through Direct Venting™ technology. CLARCOR Industrial Air manufactures eVent membranes and fabrics, collaborating with worldwide suppliers to offer a broad selection of waterproof, windproof and protective textiles to companies that create apparel, footwear, shelter and accessories.
