  • GSS ANSI Class 3 High Visibility Zippered Hoodie

    GSS Non-ANSI Identification Safety VestWinter is coming to an end and while spring is just around the corner, there's still a substantial amount of cold weather left before it really begins to warm up. It might be too warm at work for a full winter jacket, but it's still not warm enough for short-sleeves.
     
    So what's your best bet for work safety wear? The ANSI Class 3 Zippered Hooded Sweatshirt from GSS.
     
    Manufactured from a durable 100% polyester fleece, the material of this hoodie has a unique teflon protection layer for delivering premium durability on the job. Equipped with a heavy-duty zipper and a black birds-eye mesh lining for extra warmth, there's literally nowhere it can't be worn. This sweatshirt also zippers directly into the GSS 8505 parka to serve as a liner, which really showcases the ingenuity at GSS.
     
    The 2-inch segmented reflective striping on these sweatshirts is more flexible than solid traditional solid striping, which provides a more comfortable fit without diminishing safety. It also prevents the common problem of deformation after a wash cycle, where often times a high visibility shirt will shrink but the striping doesn't, causing an odd shape or less shapely fit.
     
    To help fight the appearance of dirt and maintain a cleaner, more stylish look, the 7511 hooded sweatshirt utilizes black fabric in the lower front and other high-contact areas. Grease, dirt, sand and soil are much less noticeable on black when compared to your usual orange and yellow fabrics.
     
    The GSS is ANSI Class 3 compliant, warm, comfortable, and sure to keep you visible in any type of working conditions. Too see more or to get your own today, check it out here. Stay safe out there!

  • GSS Non-ANSI Identification Safety Vest

    GSS Non-ANSI Identification Safety VestWe all know the drill when it comes to safety vests - they help enhance safety in the workplace by keeping you as visible as possible. There's a wide variety of safety vests, from ANSI 2 to ANSI 3, FR Rated, and even specially designed vests for surveyors, utility worker and the like. They're proven to save lives, and play an integral part in everyday safety on the job. However, ANSI rated safety vests aren't always a requirement and there are many industries where simple, non-ansi safety vests are utilized, both to enhance visibility and provide identification. This is where a product such as the GSS Identification Safety Vest is most useful.
     
    Imagine working on a large industrial job site such as that's well lit and indoors, or maybe an outdoor event venue where safety hazards are practically non-existent to employees. There's really no need for high-visibility workwear, but it'd be nice to have a way to identify workers from the public, or to classify certain workers from others based on their job tasks or title. Identification safety vests are perfect for these scenarios, offering a simple & cost-effective solution that make it easy to clarify who's who.
     
    Available in multiple colors, the GSS Non-ANSI Identification Vest can be assigned by color to specific groups of workers. For example, on a large industrial site where hundreds of workers may be present, it would be reasonable and effective to assign orange vests to all electricians, blue vests to all plumbers and fitters, red vests to general laborers, etc.. Not only does it simplify and organize the job site, it also makes it easier to locate someone specific in a busy environment. The same is true when used for event venues, emergency response or other situations where large groups of people are present and the ability to identify workers is critical for running a smooth operation. These can also be used to increase profits by making it simple for the public to identify vendors at concerts venues or sporting events.
     
    The GSS Non-ANSI Identification vest is lightweight, inexpensive and has several features to increase usability. Made from 100% polyester mesh, it's ideal for warm weather or to be worn over a jacket in colder environments. For improved visibility, 2-inch prismatic reflective striping adorns the lower half of the vest. Both the front and the back of these vests have clear plastic ID holders, making it easy to display identification cards.
     
    Communication is also made easy, thanks to the microphone tab located on the chest. Simply clip a mic on it and your radio or smartphone can be used for effective hands-free device. The vest has a large outside pocket that can fit a tablet or clipboard, a inside patch pocket, and is equipped with adjustable side straps for a computable and secure fit.
     
    Overall, the Non-ANSI identification Safety Vest by GSS is an effective, flexible and affordable vest that offers unlimited range of use.
