Attention all rail workers and contractors

The ultimate ARC Spec RAIL garment has arrived. Lineside workers have to deal with a multitude of hazards every single day, working on a circuit breaker, for example. Tasks like these require a high-performance ARC rated and flame retardant garment that can be worn for long periods of time without any fatigue to the worker.

Unprecedented performance

Meet ROOTS Kermel® Textreme, the ultimate inherent FR and ARC rated garments offering the highest protection of any RAIL spec garment out there. ROOTS Kermel® Textreme is rated for GO/RT 3279 / RIS-3279-TOM, boasts FR protection rated for 100 washing cycles and a class 2 welding certificate. 

Keep in mind that the standard for these safety norms is 5 washing cycles, significantly less than what we offer. The ARC flash protection of a ROOTS Kermel® Textreme garment comes out at 9.1 cal/cm2 on just the garment and manages to reach as high as 31.8 cal/cm2 when combined with our ROOTS ARC base layer underwear, making it the best choice for high voltage work.

Laundry made easy

On top of being rated for 100 washes ROOTS Kermel® Textreme is also rated for ISO 6330 -60ºC and ISO 15797 -75ºC meaning that it can be washed both domestically and industrially at 75ºC and being tunnel dried at 155ºC while still maintaining a colour fastness that is unrivalled by any inherent FR rail garment.

Designed by everyday workers.

During the design of our ROOTS Kermel® Textreme garments, we listened closely to the demands of the people that know exactly what they want out of a garment, namely workers wearing them. It is no coincidence that we use the most breathable Textreme fibre causing significant heat stress reduction, simply because workers told us that that was their biggest issue with their garments.

Every pocket, tool loop and seam is meticulously placed to offer the wearer the greatest ease of motion whilst always having the tools for the job in an easy to reach storage space on the garment. ROOTS Kermel® Textreme garments are available as a coverall, jacket, and trousers to offer a multitude of options.

Also available in men's sizing.

We have been committed to providing protective garments to all. No matter size or gender, our products provide you with comfortable flash fire and arc flash protection. This strong commitment drives us to continue adding ladies fit garments in all our products ranges. Our first ladies fit coverall dates back a few years and one of our latest is the Kermel® Textreme Hi-Vis ladies coverall.

International Women's Day

Today, it's International Women's Day. A day to praise and honour all women in the industry. True heroes. At ROOTS, our customers’ trust means everything to us. We will never stop working to earn and maintain it through the development of garments that guarantee best in class safety performance for its wearer.

Finding the perfect fit

Due to the lack of right fitting women’s garments, we noticed ladies being tempted to purchase small-sized men’s workwear as a compromise. Which leads to poorly fitted workwear – something that can be exceptionally hazardous in the workplace. The problem with oversized clothing is that it often leads to accidents whereby clothing is rolled up around the legs or sleeves. This easily gets trapped around machinery.

This acknowledgement empowered our designers to craft a selection of female fit range that’s worn in all industries: e.g. offshore, rail, utility, transportation and construction. Based on our experience and brand loyal users around the globe, we invited women from all kinds of industries to work together with us to find the perfect fit. Designs are meticulously tailored to the women’s feedback ensuring comfortable, reliable, practical and, above all, a true ladies’ fit.

More and more ranges ladies fit

Unlike other flame retardant workwear manufacturers, we have been committed to providing protective garments to all. This is especially evident in the special-sizing, -fits and tailoring options we offer. Our first ladies fit coverall dates back a few years. This strong commitment drives us to continue adding ladies fit garments in all our product ranges. Our latest true ladies fit coverall is the Textreme Hi-Vis ladies coverall, which is certified to 100 industrial washing cycles!
