All of Arco’s products are tested and accredited to meet the highest of EN standards and the new GORE-TEX Hazardwear garments not only meet EN standards, they exceed them. Flame retardant, waterproof, windproof and breathable; the new garments will allow wearers to work in ultimate comfort whilst offering total weather protection. Visitors to the Arco stand will have the opportunity to view a selection of these innovative products and also collect the accompanying expert guides. 


New additions to Arco's comprehensive range of safety gloves will also be on on their stand. These include the Cut Control System glove range, which is colour coded to illustrate different levels of cut protection and also numbered for ease of use and efficiency.


Also being showcased is Arco’s popular Neoprene glove range. Made from the physically tough synthetic material Neoprene, these gloves offer high levels of protection against a variety of chemical and cut hazards.
