Multilayering & multi-norm

It is important that you have clothes that are adaptable to constantly changing weather conditions. With our multi-layering concept you can keep yourself dry and warm. You are also protected against all of the elements including: wind, rain, hail and snow. Some of the garment that we offer include: body wear (underwear), long sleeve T-shirts, waistcoats and polos, to thermal wear such as body warmers and soft shells as well as regular workwear for the outer layer. Every layer can be combined with another.

For optimal protection in hazardous working conditions, we developed our multi-norm collection. All of these clothes comply with the latest standards and protect against flames, welding sparks, arc flashovers, static, chemical splashes, etc.

By combining the multilayering and multi-norm concepts, we have developed a clothing range that protects you all the time. From harsh weather to hazardous working environments, we have a solution for every condition.

The integration with the other Sioen divisions, allows us to take care of all the spinning, weaving, production of pigments, coating, cutting and manufacturing of technical textiles.
