Safety standards in SYNQ workwear
Click on the standard below to learn more about it and to discover which type of protection your job requires.
EN ISO 13688 standard as a rule
Did you know? All our certified workwear also complies with the EN ISO 13688 standard. This International Standard specifies general performance requirements for protective clothing and diligently sees to questions like: Is it ergonomically designed? Is it harmless for your health? How is the clothing affected by washing and ageing? Does the item have a clear size designation? And is all the needed, protective information correctly marked?
In sync with professional laundry
For longer-lasting protective workwear, professional care is the way to go. That's why SYNQ workwear is perfectly in sync with this process.
For certified workwear, we recommend professional care to keep the fluorescent and reflective materials optimally preserved. So you can rest assured the garments still meet the standards & certification and that the protection level remains intact.
Q for quality: tested & approved
All raw materials, whether still in development or long-standing, are thoroughly tested both in Sioen’s own R&D centres and labs, as well as by independent research institutes.
But that's not where our testing process ends... you could say it's only the beginning. That’s why we've teamed up with a group of professionals, who form the SYNQ Squad. They put our developments to the test in the work-field, judging if the performance is up to par for their specific jobs. Any feedback they give us, we evaluate and improve the product where necessary.
Personalisation of certified garments
Company profiling on your workwear? Great idea! But be careful when it comes to personalising certified garments. Adding your company logo might affect the protection level of the garment. You need to keep in mind both the size and placement of your logo, as well as the technique used to apply your logo to the garment. Read more about it in our dedicated page on personalisation.
