Brand Focus – Flexothane Workwear at Granite Workwear

One of our biggest ranges we stock here at Granite Workwear is Flexothane, on site you can pick and choose between the three brands within the range: Essential, Flame and Kleen.

What is Flexothane?

There are several reasons why this fabric is special, for example it's taken many years of research and development to get to the standard used in today's workwear. Without trying to get too scientific Flexothane is a polyurethane coating on top of a knitted base fabric. This fabric provides excellent protection as the polyurethane coating is stretchable (approximately 150%) and the knitted base helps make it waterproof and windproof, noiseless and highly tear resistant. Up to 50% lighter than conventional waterproofs and extremely, this fabric is also resistant to oil and fungal growth.

Garments produced from Flexothane are durable and easy to care for, this stretches across all the three brands we sell, however there are a few slight differences:

Flexothane Essential

The Essential is ideal for lighter workwear duties along with domestic requirements. No garments in this range are hi-vis but just like the flame and Kleen range every item is fully wind and waterproof as well as being lightweight and breathable. Perfect for leisure!

Flexothane Classic

The Classic collection is made from a one-sided PU coating on a polyamide knitting and  has been designed for those who work in the following industries: horticulture, agriculture, grounds maintenance. 

Flexothane Flame

Flexothane Flame, the name gives it away but this is made from flame retardant Flexothane. This category features many garments that meet several workwear standards for various professions, just click the product you're interested in and we have outlined what standards it complies to. With high frequency welded seams, this clothing is 100% waterproof and windproof.

Flexothane Kleen

Flexothane Kleen has been designed specifically for the food preparation industry, all garments are washable at 95 °C. The royal blue colour used for the majority of this collection is ideal should any part of the garment become caught in the food items it is very easy to see. 

Flexothane Anti-static 

Made from flame retardant and anti-static Flexothane, the conductive yarn  avoids the building-up of static charges -that could ignite an explosive atmosphere.
Flexothane Flame 9728 FR High Vis Jacket

Before the introduction of Flexothane, waterproof garments were often heavy, cumbersome, uncomfortable, as well as hard to maintain. This is a technical fabric that promises you excellent protection and will be around for many more years to come.
