Professional protective clothing

Sioen

Brief description of services

Professional protective clothing for all working conditions. Since the early 1960s, we have specialized in the design and production (own workshops) of professional protective clothing. Today we offer the largest range of professional protective clothing that protects the wearer in all working conditions and against any risk.

Why is the product or service circular?

We develop the sustainable professional protective clothing of the future. Three pillars are:

  • Focus on sustainability without sacrificing comfort or safety.
  • Clothing management for a better understanding of costs, efficiency, hygiene and safety.
  • End of life: investigate the return of the clothing for recycling.

Which circular strategies are applied?

  • Reduce total amount of materials: The fabrics and raw materials we use for our clothing are lighter (less raw material is used) and have a low CO2 footprint. They are packaged and transported sustainably.
  • Reduce amount of virgin inputs: The fabrics and raw materials we use for our clothing are:  
    • Made from recycled raw materials such as R-PET when possible
    • Made from renewable raw materials (biobased) when possible
  • Extend the useful life: Our clothing:
    • Can be washed more often without losing their inherent properties
    • Great tear resistance, less wear and tear, colourfast, repair instead of replacing, easy to repair and clean
  • Maximise the reusability or recyclability of materials: Smart choice of materials (e.g. the same raw material for clothing, zippers and yarns) makes disassembly and recycling easy. End of Life Instructions. Our fabrics and raw materials are zero-tox (Oekotex 100 certified).
