For welders and other industrial workers, sleeves and bibs can be lightweight and cooler alternatives to standard protective jackets. Look for sleeves and bibs with the level of protection right for you or your employees, as well as the materials and sizes you need for a comfortable fit. Be sure to review all of our safety and security products for the workplace as well, including rainwear that can help ensure safety and comfort even during inclement weather.
Although welding and industrial jackets can provide an excellent level of protection, they aren't always ideal when the weather or warehouse gets too warm. For certain types of dangerous work, sleeves and bibs can provide excellent protection for the arms and upper body, while allowing the worker to remain cooler than he or she would wearing a full-coverage jacket. Look for a bib that attaches to pair of sleeves for more coverage, or sleeves that provide significant protection on their own. Consider the materials, like leather or sateen, and whether the sleeve or bib is heat resistant or flame retardant, to get the best level of protection for the specific type of work to be done.
Look for products designed to accommodate workers who need extra arm protection and support as well, like an arm pad that resists heat and supports with insulated padding without hindering movement.
