What are the benefits of OREX products?
OREX clothing is known for its light weight and comfort, but it also provides a very high level of protection. The garments are breathable and tend to reduce heat stress. In fact, a full OREX dressout (coverall, booties and hood) weighs 70% less than traditional cloth garments. Since OREX is much lighter, the risk of injury associated with protective clothing handling is reduced. Use of OREX provides numerous other benefits to the plant, including reduced numbers of laundry shipments during outages and cost savings over current laundry programs. What’s more, most plants that have converted to OREX have observed significant reductions in personnel contamination events. This can be attributed to the elimination of contamination events that have historically come from the residual particles present in laundered protective clothing.
