Designed by GAAARD Protection in West Yorkshire, the Scaffshirt is the answer to the problem thousands of scaffolders and workers have battled for years.
The shirt has been carefully developed over a number of years to meet the highest safety standards. A European design right protected garment, the Scaffshirt features weight-bearing shoulder pads to provide support for the shoulder joints which need it the most when carrying heavy items. The padding alleviates pain, corrects the posture and gait of those who wear it and reduces injury.
The pads – which are manufactured from 3D-sculptured EVA compression padding – sit discreetly inside a pocket on the shirt, which is stitched securely to the top of the shoulder. The pockets are waterproof and shirts are supplied with a pocket on each shoulder. In simple terms: the shirt is durable, is built to last, and gives workers and companies peace of mind that they will be protected. Furthermore, the Scaffshirt meets all current health and safety visibility requirements needed for safe site work.
A study conducted by Erasmas University Rotterdam concluded that a padded shoulder will prevent future injuries in those who wear it, after numerous case studies into the strength and protection the product provides workers. Furthermore, companies who have tested the product across Europe in countries such as England, Sweden and Ireland have all reported positive feedback after trialling it on-site.
Working closely with established, well trusted distributors, the GAAARD Protection range lends itself perfectly to personalisation and branding to make your company stand out and look professional.
The Scaffshirt is also available as a sweatshirt, hooded top and hi-vis vest.
