Helly Hansen Feature In Roofing Today Magazine

Corporate workwear suppliers Helly Hansen announce their recent appearance in Roofing Today magazine.

Online PR News – 13-November-2009 – – Warrington, Cheshire, November 2009 – Corporate workwear suppliers Helly Hansen are delighted to announce their recent appearance in Roofing Today magazine.

An article, published in the September/October edition of the magazine demonstrated the benefits of the company’s clothing range for roofers and other tradesmen this winter, as well as highlighting some of the factors that people should be aware of when choosing the right attire for the job.

The article explains that the need for effective work clothing is not just to keep the worker warm and dry, but also to ensure that they are fully-focussed on their work and most importantly, kept safe. Studies have shown that many injuries related to work are caused by those who lose concentration due to the adverse affect of cold weather conditions.

Helly Hansen UK Distribution Director Paul Hallinan advised readers to ignore the marketing spiel used by manufacturers and refer directly to clothing labels in order to discover the most appropriate materials. He commented:

“Many people are now familiar with the 'three layer' concept of clothing. This includes a waterproof outer layer, the middle layer for warmth and a base layer next to the skin. The principle of this approach is that these 3 layers should work in tandem with each other, in order to transfer body moisture away from the body. However, there is a great deal of confusion about how these layers should be combined to maximum effect.”


“Hopefully, this article will go some way to clearing up this confusion and help tradesmen to better understand these layers. This will allow you to choose the most appropriate workwear to stay warm, dry and protected from the elements this winter.”
