As a gardener, one thing is certain: your workplace is outdoors. Regardless of whether you are working at a cemetery, for a local authority or with park and garden maintenance, you will be performing your work in all kinds of weather.
Workwear for warm weather
We might not have control of the weather, but fortunately you are able to choose the right clothing for your employees with our wide range of ENGEL garments which are suitable for outdoor work. On a warm summer day, a T-shirt, a pair of shorts and a work vest will be perfect, while rainwear will be necessary when everything is wet.
If you spend a lot of time kneeling, a pair of long trousers will be preferable. Our trousers, which are especially developed with gardeners in mind and obviously have pockets for knee pads. Even though it is hot and shorts are preferable, it is important to choose a pair of trousers with space for knee pads instead. Our knees should last a lifetime, so it is important to protect them against impact.
Workwear for cold weather
In the cold winter months, there is also plenty to do outdoors and also very important to wear the right clothing. You must be able to keep warm, but at the same time you have to perform your work without becoming drenched in perspiration. A winter jacket will allow the body to breathe and will be a good choice.
In rain or sleet, it is important to have outerwear that keeps you dry. At ENGEL, we have numerous products which are EN343-certified – i.e. they are guaranteed to keep the water out.
Keep your feet warm
In the cold winter months, one particularly important piece of clothing is the socks we are wearing. If you don’t keep your feet warm, your whole body will soon start to feel cold.
We have especially developed socks which contain both wool and Coolmax®. The wool keeps you warm, while the Coolmax® helps keeping your feet dry. Both are very important when working outside in the cold.
Accessories for gardenersIn addition to keeping your feet warm, it is also important to keep your body warm. Wearing several different layers will keep you well-insulated against the cold. For the innermost layer, ENGEL’s thermal underwear would be a good choice as it is absorbent, yet does not take up much space underneath ordinary workwear.
