Fabrics produced in Italy

The Argar range of professional Technical Knitted fabrics are produced and finished in Italy to ensure the highest quality levels and traceability – two key factors when choosing your protective garments.

Certified Garments

Ensuring that your protective clothing conforms to all the necessary regulations is critical to any safety manager within an organization.

Whilst buyers and specifiers of garments have become more aware of imported garments with poor certification and traceability, continuing to ensure any garments including GORT3279 products correctly comply to the correct European norms should still be of utmost importance in addition to choosing a responsible supply chain.

Resources

For further information on these European Norms, refer to your PPE provider, Notified Bodies such as Satra and West Yorkshire Materials Testing, or useful online links such as this page on the Satra website.
