Outdoor Workwear from First Avenue: Features and Benefits 

September 29, 2023

At First Avenue, we specialise in all types of workwear. One of our categories is Outdoor Workwear. Outdoor workwear encompasses a wide range of clothing and gear designed to protect workers who perform tasks in various outdoor environments.

There are various types of outdoor workwear. The requirement for each class depends on factors such as weather conditions and potential hazards.

Types of Outdoor Workwear 

We have a selection of outdoor workwear for all areas. Here are some of our common types:

High-Visibility Clothing

High-visibility outdoor clothing is designed for workers in environments where they need to be easily seen, such as construction sites, roadwork, and warehouses.

Features of high-visibility clothing

  • Bright colours (usually neon yellow, orange, or green) combined with reflective materials for visibility during low-light conditions.
  • Logo additions available
  • Highly durable

Protective Footwear

Our protective footwear forms part of our outdoor clothing selection but is also frequently worn indoors in factory and warehouse environments. Protective footwear shields the worker’s feet from hazards like falling objects, sharp objects, chemicals, or extreme weather.

Features of protective footwear:

  • Steel toe caps
  • Slip-resistant soles
  • Puncture-resistant materials
  • Waterproofing for specific conditions.

Work Gloves

Our work gloves offer hand protection against cuts, abrasions, chemicals, and other hazards. They are suitable for indoor or outdoor use for protection against the elements.

Features of our work gloves:

  • Various material options are based on the specific job (e.g., leather, rubber, or synthetic materials).
  • Designed for specific tasks, including welding, landscaping, or chemical handling.
  • Logo additions available.

Head Protection

Head protection is another element of our outdoor workwear. Our hard hats guard against falling objects, electrical hazards, and other impacts. These are also used indoors in warehouse environments.

Features of our protective headwear:

  • Various classifications based on the level of protection needed (e.g., Type I or Type II).
  • Built-in visors on some types.
  • Bright colours to help with visibility.
  • Logo additions available.

Safety Eyewear

When it comes to outdoor workwear, people often forget that safety eyewear is as important as everything else. Safety goggles and glasses shield eyes from dust, debris, chemicals, and other potential eye hazards.

Features of our safety eyewear:

  • Impact-resistant lenses
  • Anti-fog coatings
  • UV protection.

Respiratory Protection

Respiratory protection is essential for dusty and dirty areas as it filters out harmful particles, gases, or vapours in the air. If you’re working in a hazardous environment, indoors or outside, you should check the requirements for respiratory protection.

Features of our respiratory protection:

  • Different types of masks and respirators based on the level of protection needed (e.g., N95 respirators for particulate matter, full-face respirators for chemical protection).
  • Options for branding and logo additions

Weatherproof Clothing

Our weatherproof clothing protects against the elements you would be exposed to outdoors. We have a wide range, each suited to different types of weather. Waterproof outer garments for rainy and wet conditions, insulated clothing and body warmers for the cold months and sunglasses, caps and visors for protection from the sun.

We often find that outdoor labourers require a selection of all types of outdoor clothing to ensure they are correctly protected in each season.

Features of our weatherproof clothing:

  • Waterproof
  • Water-resistant
  • Sealed seams to keep moisture out
  • Layered construction for insulation
  • Wind resistant fabrics
  • UV protection
  • Logo options available on request.
