HB long sleeve shirts: higher UV protection as required by the EN 13758

Mar 14, 2023

Just in time for spring, the long-sleeved polo shirts and T-shirts from HB Protective Wear offer the necessary high UV 50+ protection to all those who work outdoors. This is more than the international standard EN 13758-2 requires and means that the fabric only lets through one fiftieth - just 2% - of the UV radiation.

Other certified protective features include arc flash, heat and flame protection and anti-static. The fluorescent colour versions also offer Class 2 high visibilty protection. As multi-risk shirts, they are suitable for different areas of use and can be worn comfortably as additional protection under other PPE  They are part of the comprehensive HB-MODarc and HB-MODarc&vis collections which complement each other perfectly.


With a material weight of only 215 or 245 g/m², the shirts are real lightweights. The material consists of either modacrylic with cotton or a quick-drying polyester/modacrylic/cotton mix. It feels good on the skin and has good moisture management. This makes it very comfortable to wear even when working uncomfortably. This also applies to the versions with reflective stripes: these are segmented and follow every movement.



The polo shirts are available in grey, blue, warning yellow and warning orange and the T-shirts in light and dark grey, blue and orange. All eight designs are industrial washable and available in sizes XS - 3XL.
