Bad weather is one of the worst enemies of any construction crew. It jeopardises worker safety and makes it difficult, if not impossible to get the work done. CHARNAUD® explains how the right PPE can enable workers to stay dry in wet weather and keep working towards their goals, even as the rain falls.

Keeping Crews Working In Wet Weather

Of course, there are times when wet weather really does make it impossible to continue working on a construction site, and there is nothing to do but wait for the rain to subside. However, barring heavy rain, it is possible to keep the work going provided workers can be kept safe and dry. Quality PPE makes this possible. CHARNAUD® has developed an entire range of PPE, called AQUA-TECH®, which is designed specifically to keep workers going safely through wet weather.

What Does The CHARNAUD® AQUA-TECH® Range Include?

CHARNAUD® AQUA-TECH® is a range of industrial waterproof rainwear garments made from PVC-coated fabrics, designed to provide full-body cover in wet working conditions. The PVC is coated onto a woven polyester base fabric, which lasts much longer than most other unsupported fabrics. The range is ideal for industry, construction, agriculture and mining applications.

The range includes PVC-coated hooded jackets, elastic-waisted trousers, PVC-coated suits, a PVC-coated apron and safety boots. When wearing these garments, it is possible for workers to carry on working in muddy, drizzly conditions. The garments will keep workers’ clothes and skin dry, and the boots will minimise the risk of slip-and-fall accidents, while keeping staff dry, warm and comfortable. No construction crew should be without CHARNAUD® AQUA-TECH® PPE.
