Driven by function and style, color-blocking improves wearability and time in service Radians®, a top-tier manufacturer and supplier of quality Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), has significantly expanded their RadWear® apparel line with styles that include black color-blocking.
According to Nicole Novick, High-Visibility product manager, “Black color-blocking is a trend driven by both function and style. The black detail is very functional, concealing dirt, stains, and grime, while improving the vest’s wearability and time in service.
“Color-blocking also enhances the aesthetic of a safety vest without compromising worker visibility. Thus, engineers, contractors, and professionals often gravitate to the style because it projects a more professional image,” said Novick.
Radians recently launched two new color-blocked heavy-duty engineer vests: the SV55B and the SV66B. Both vests are rated Type R Class 2 and are excellent choices for those who require durable, professional looking vests with lots of functional features.
The SV55B is based on the SV55, one of Radians’ bestselling two-tone engineer vests. It has many of the features of the SV55, such as a heavy duty #8 zipper closure, padded neck, dual mic tabs, and 12 pockets, including a plan pocket for blueprints or other large documents. The SV55B has the black detail at the bottom of the vest and in the chest area.
The SV66B, priced lower than the SV55B, has contrasting black trim at the bottom of the vest, nine pockets, including a plan pocket, dual mic tabs, and grommets at neck for tool keepers.
