Even 49 degrees below zero can't scare you

  • High-quality cold protection PPE from HB Protective Wear
  • From head to toe, from the inside to the outside.
  • Wide product range for ladies also

Working in deep-freeze and cold environments requires the use of highly effective cold protection equipment. Therefore, the individual components of the clothing have to be compatible and fit the intensity of movement. For example, a forklift driver needs extra-strong insulation.

The products of the TEMPEX® cold protection range from HB Protective Wear complement each other so that the required protection can be combined individually. HB provides garments suited for temperature segments deep-freeze to -49°C and environments from 0°C to +10°C. All fabrics are specially developed for these temperatures. They are manufactured exclusively for HB and are carefully sewn. HB's usual high quality gives the wearer the good feeling of always being protected in the best possible way.

Comprehensive choice of designs and materials

The CLASSIC 2.0 collection with ergonomic shape provides pleasant freedom of movement. The outer material, a high-density insulating layer plus inner lining are manufactured in a thickness that is comfortable for the deep freeze range. All garments offer plenty of storage space thanks to numerous pockets. The additional inside pocket for pick-by-voice computers makes the jacket a practical helper for order picking.


The TEMPEX® Thermo line offers a layer of extra protection from the cold as intermediate clothing and is available in white and blue. The quilted material is extremely light and the ergonomic cut also ensures a lot of freedom of movement and particularly pleasant wearing comfort.

In the TEMPEX® COMFORT collection coloured navy/red, the name says it all: thanks to the supple fabrics and the comfortable cut, the garments fit perfectly and make it easy to work in padded jackets and trousers.


The white TEMPEX® HYGIENE product line was specially designed for working in the food industry. White, smooth and easy-to-clean surfaces as well as pockets with zips on the inside provide the extra safety that is important in this sector.


28 outfits for ladies, available for different temperature segments

Since many years protective clothing for HB Protective Wear is also female. That's why the experienced PPE manufacturer also offers COLD PROTECTION for ladies. The garments are specially tailored to the needs of women, such as jackets with a fitted waist and trousers with comfortable side zips.

Complete protection from head to toe

Comprehensive cold protection equipment naturally also includes the right underwear and accessories. Therefore, the PPE outfit should be completed with TEMPEX® functional underwear as well as gloves, hood and safety boots. New to HB's range is a soft fleece neck warmer made from 100% recycled PET.


Optimal combination following the modular principle

For low-movement activities in cold or frozen areas, HB garments are made with extra-strong high-bulk insulation, teddy lining and additional back lining as well as a collar made of woven fur for reliable long-term protection. The air pockets in the high-density insulating fabric form a barrier against the cold and keep the warmth close to the body, so that even very low ambient temperatures can be compensated. Thanks to the extensive product range, everyone can individually put together their cold protection equipment to suit the requirements at the workplace - from inside to outside, from head to toe.


HB TEMPEX® cold protection clothing is certified in accordance with DIN EN 342. HB's underwear, the Alaska hood and the HB fleece gloves are reference clothing in the EN standard’s garment tests and are used by certification institutes. The results state how long one can stay with the respective clothing at which physical load and at which temperature. This helps to find the right clothing combination for the specific requirements at the workplace.
