Spring is here and summer isn’t that far behind. It means that sweating is going to be much more common. Even if everyone in your workplace has deskbound jobs where no one needs to go outside all that much, you can still take advantage of sweat-wicking technology. How can you upgrade the fabric in your employees’ uniforms? Let’s answer these questions to find out how.
Your first question is probably simple: what is sweat-wicking fabric? Moisture wicking fabric helps pull sweat or other wetness away. It helps anyone wearing it to stay cool and dry no matter how hot it is or how intensely they are working. This material can be natural or synthetic, but it still works the same way. This improves the comfort level of the uniforms, shirts, pants, vests - whatever it may be - and stops that chafing feel which can be extremely unpleasant.
Your next question likely has to do with how it can improve the uniforms you’ve just ordered. Improved comfort helps fight off the effects of stress, anxiety, fatigue, and focus issues that could hamper how well your employees work. Productivity is always a plus, though that shouldn’t be the only metric by which you measure how well your employees are performing because it’s not always possible to be at 100% every single day. Hopefully, though, sweat-wicking uniforms can help with that feeling. It also helps prevent heat exhaustion or heatstroke, which are two major concerns for construction workers or anyone else with a strenous job that must be spent outside in the heat for the majority of the day.
This third question is the one that you most likely have left to ask. Which fabrics work best? Well, that’s an easy one. Polyester, nylon, spandex, and polypropylene all perform the best when put to the test. Gore-Tex is another brand that you can trust. Did you know that bamboo and wool work too? Plus, they are fire-resistant, which makes them a great choice for working around open flames.
