Bisley Garment Information

Many businesses and organisations have specific requirements of their workwear to get the job done right and safely. To do this, clothing has to meet particular standards. Here you can find the relevant information regarding these standards to help you make an informed decision on which products to purchase. 

SUN PROTECTION
AS/NZS 4399:1996

Sun Protection (15+)Sun Protection (25+)Sun Protection (40)Sun Protection (50+)

The Ultraviolet Radiation transmitted through a fabric to the skin is measured and given a rating of 15 (good protection), 30 (very good protection), 50+ (excellent protection).

Bisley Workwear garments that comply to this standard provide protection against ultraviolet radiation transmitted from the sun, tested in accordance with Australian Standard AS/NZS 4399:1996. The sun protection rating shown is rated at: Good Protection (UPF 15, 20), Very Good Protection (UPF 25, 30, 35), or Excellent Protection (40, 45, 50, 50+). Only areas of the body which are covered by material are protected. When the most effective sun protection is required, we recommend a garment which covers the full arm and leg area and has a sun protection rating of UPF 50+.

INDUSTRIAL

Industrial Clothing

Reinforced stitching, bartacks, rivets and heavy-duty fabrics mean Bisley Workwear products with this symbol have been developed for industrial environments or work places.

STATIC CONTROL
AS/NZS 1020:1995

Anti Static

Certain natural fibres do not attract static electricity (static neutral) and therefore reduce the risk of an electric shock to the body. 100% Cotton is the most common static control in garments.

We work hard to reduce the amount of static electricity your body conducts by offering a large range of natural cotton fibre products. Out 100% Cotton Workwear avoids the generation of static electricity by remaining neutral, therefore increasing wearer comfort.

If the wearer is prone to dry skin, especially in Winter months, it is strongly recommended that 100% Cotton Workwear is worn against the skin. Synthetic undergarments may counteract this advantage so, where possible, we recommend the wearing of natural fibre undergarments.

COOL LIGHTWEIGHT

Cool Lightweight

We recognize the need for developing lightweight, breathable garments and have added mesh ventilation to key perspiration points on some garments.

EASY-FIT

Stretch Fit

Whether you’re an ‘in-between’ size or you prefer a comfortable stretch for freedom of movement, garments developed with an easy-fit can provide an ergonomic adjustment with no change to look or feel.

MOISTURE CONTROL

Moisture Control

Hydrophilic garments pull perspiration away from your skin to the outer layer of the fabric where it is able to evaporate faster, leaving your skin fresh and without excessive perspiration.

3M REFLECTIVE TAPE
AS/NZS 1906.4:2010

3M Scotchlite

We stock garments with two grades of the internationally recognized 3M Retroreflective Tape: 8910 for general domestic washing and safety use, and 3M 8935 for flame resistant garments.

INDUSTRIAL WASH

Industrial Wash

Bisley premium Industrial range is designed to withstand industrial washes at 75°c. Using superior imported German dyes for greater colourfastness and superior industrial strength 3M 9920 reflective tape.

X AIRFLOW

X Airflow

This garment has been designed with cross ventilation at multiple heat stress areas, which boosts airflow to keep you cool.

WATER RESISTANT FABRIC
AS 2001.2.18-1987

Water Resistant

Water resistant membranes are often added to the reverse side of rainwear fabrics to ensure that no water can penetrate from outside, keeping you dry in wet weather.

This garment has a water-repellent or water-resistant coating which stops moisture from reaching the wearer in wet-weather conditions. Bisley Workwear ‘water-proof’ garments have been tested to the Australian Standard AS 2001.2.18:1987 and the fabric has been deemed compliant when no water has passed through it over an 18hour period.

HIGH VISIBILITY MATERIAL
AS/NZS 1906.4:2010

Hi Vis Safety

Bisley Safetywear High Visibility garments are developed to be seen in high-risk environments and protect you from work place hazards.

Bisley Workwear garments use High Visibility materials tested to Australian Standard AS/NZS 1906.4:2010 which outlines the requirements for fluorescent capabilities and the chromaticity reading to ensure that bright colours are within the required colour range. Our high quality tapes and fabrics are tried and tested to this standard to ensure you’re protected in High Risk situations.

HI VIS DAY ONLY
AS/NZS 4602.1:2011

Hi Vis Class D

Day (D) Only garments are developed to be worn during the day time only and never at night. Hi-Vis colours are used to ensure you’re seen in high-risk environments.

The design of garments for this Standard are based primarily on the needs of workers in situations where vehicles may be approaching them at speed, in time for any necessary safety action to be taken, or any other industrial situation of similar risk levels where workers need to be seen at distance, against a complex visual background, in conditions of poor visibility or where they may appear suddenly in the path of moving plant equipment. Garments designed to AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 must have at least 0.2m2 of high visibility fabric (AS/NZS 1906.4:2010) on the front and on the back to meet the Day and/ or Day/ Night Standard. Garments designed to AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 for Day/ Night or Night Standard must have a compliant retroreflective taping configuration in, what is commonly known as, a ‘H’ Pattern or ‘Hoop’ Pattern. High visibility material must encircle the upper body, underarm ventilation panels must be no more than 10cm wide x 10cm high.

HI VIS DAY OR NIGHT
AS/NZS 4602.1:2011

Hi Vis Class D/N

Day/ Night (D/N) garments are developed to be worn both during the day and also at night. Hi-Vis colours accompanied with retroreflective taping offer maximum protection.

The design of garments for this Standard are based primarily on the needs of workers in situations where vehicles may be approaching them at speed, in time for any necessary safety action to be taken, or any other industrial situation of similar risk levels where workers need to be seen at distance, against a complex visual background, in conditions of poor visibility or where they may appear suddenly in the path of moving plant equipment. Garments designed to AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 must have at least 0.2m2 of high visibility fabric (AS/NZS 1906.4:2010) on the front and on the back to meet the Day and/ or Day/ Night Standard.

Night (N) Only garments are developed to be worn during the night time only as the retroreflective taping offers visibility from vehicle headlights.

The design of garments for this Standard are based primarily on the needs of workers in situations where vehicles may be approaching them at speed, in time for any necessary safety action to be taken, or any other industrial situation of similar risk levels where workers need to be seen at distance, against a complex visual background, in conditions of poor visibility or where they may appear suddenly in the path of moving plant equipment. Garments designed to AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 must have at least 0.2m2 of high visibility fabric (AS/NZS 1906.4:2010) on the front and on the back to meet the Day and/ or Day/ Night Standard.
