For three generations and over 80 years, Richlu Manufacturing has been building apparel to protect people for the toughest jobs, the harshest climates, and any adventure life has to offer.
Richlu Manufacturing and its brands Tough Duck and Work King Safety were built on the foundation of doing what it takes to get the job done. From the beginning, they set out to create apparel that works and plays as hard as the people who wear it. What started out as a pant manufacturer has since expanded into a full range of apparel and footwear.
Work clothes that are tailored for how they’re worn. They created and continue to update their clothing designs based on the feedback they receive from the people who wear them and they’re always designing with functionality, style and innovation in mind.
A proud Canadian company. and brand, they are passionate about having their home in Winnipeg, Manitoba as the center of it all. They’ve brought the best talent and skill together from design and manufacturing to continue their heritage of curating the highest quality apparel and footwear no matter what it’s used for.
Features of Work King Safety by Tough Duck
Tough Duck and Work King Safety brand garments are put to the test. That’s why the designers carefully select components that enhance the durability of all of their apparel. The high visibility safety gear meets or exceeds all CSA and ANSI requirements, providing the protection needed on work and job sites.
3M™ Retroreflective Scotchlight™ Tape meets or exceeds the highest industry safety standards for reflection. It also offers incredible durability. Because not all work is completed during daylight hours, having a top grade reflective tape ensures your visibilty during low light hours.
Rivets and shanks add extra durability to garments to help them stand up to the punishment of the work day. By placing them in strategic positions, you will never have to worry about a seam busting loose or a pocket flapping in the breeze.
3M Thinsulate Insulation
Not all insulation is created equal, so you can rest easy knowing that Tough Duck apparel features 3M™ Thinsulate. It is known for creating warmth without adding weight and unnecessary bulk. There is cold, and then there is Canadian cold; they have designed their work apparel to perform in the harshest conditions.
When it comes to consistency and reliability, there is simply no better zipper. Grab the zipper pull and give it a tug...grease, grime, dirt, cold weather...it will work. They set the industry standard.
Bar tacking at stress points reinforces the areas that see the most wear. So whether you are squatting down, pulling at your pockets, or simply find yourself in an awkward work position, you know your work gear can take the pressure.
Inspecting finished garments is time consuming, but there is no better way to ensure the work wear meets the exacting standards. Quality uncompromised is not just a catchy phrase, it is what's built into the production process for each Tough Duck garment.
