Relaunch of a bestseller: SECAN® Securo becomes HB-Iron Pro

Feb 8, 2023

New design, Lighter fabric, Enhanced protection 

HB Protective Wear has further developed the SECAN® Securo collection, one of its classics for protection against liquid iron splashes, giving it a dynamic design and an ergonomic fit. In addition, the material is now 10% lighter, while functionality has been improved and high-visibility protection added. Matching this extensive relaunch is also the new collection name: HB-Iron Pro.

A modern stand-up collar, set-in side pockets with zips, bright yellow piping and an ergonomic line characterise the new jacket. Diagonally arranged reflective stripes on the trousers ensure a dynamic look and improved visibility. Elastic knitted inserts on the side entry of the dungarees also provide an optimum fit and greater wearing comfort. Flame-retardant stretch straps and a high-cut kidney protection additionally improve the protective function. 


These advantages in terms of appearance, safety and comfort are just as convincing as the lighter fabric, which continues to offer reliable flame resistance in the usual SECAN® quality - for up to 50 industrial washes at 95°. The material is made of the tried and tested wearer-friendly 98% cotton plus 2% carbon and now weighs only 420 g/m² - a noticeable relief for the PPE wearer when working in heat and liquid metal workplaces.

Above all, however, the performance is impressive: HB-Iron Pro continues to offer the best possible protection against large amounts of liquid iron (E3) as well as very good protection against radiant heat (20.1 sec). Due to the high heat insulation with comparatively low fabric weight, the PPE is excellently suited for use at blast furnaces in combination with metallised clothing. The material is also equivalent to a much heavier fabric in terms of welding beads and arc interference. The roof tile processing principle allows liquid metal splashes to roll off easily. In addition, the collection now also offers certified warning protection according to EN 17353 type B2: All-round patched reflective stripes on a fluorescent backing make people much more visible in dark surroundings.

The collection includes a jacket, trousers and dungarees in the colour combination of medium grey/orange/fluorescent yellow and is available in sizes 40 to 70 (from stock in sizes 46-58 & 94-110). It can be ordered from HB's high-speed service 21TOWEAR for as little as 1 part and the trousers and bib overalls can also be ordered with a knee pocket for knee pads on request. Find out more at
