Built Tuff, from the depths of the earth, a Syzmik™ change has been rumbling into work sites across Australia and New Zealand … and it keeps getting even bigger!
Since the launch of Syzmik Workwear, workplaces have been enjoying the comfort and durability of their new Syzmik™ clothing, trusting the range to keep them safe, warm and dry as they work hard to make their living.
Under development and continuous strict testing for safety compliance, durability and comfort the SYZMIK™ range of workwear has been developed to meet the needs of hardworking men and women in the workplace across a variety of industries.
It will continue to grow as Syzmik™ develop more quality products using innovative fabric technologies which undergo stringent testing to ensure reliability to those whose lives depend on it.
Traditional cool work wear has used lightweight cotton drill to help provide a heat stress solution but the issue with this solution is that the base garments and fabric are essentially the same as traditional workwear so there is only minimal additional cooling achieved.
The other major limitation of traditional cool workwear options is the loss in strength and durability from using a lighter weight fabric…… Syzmik™

Hi Viz Standards
This standard explains the use of hi-visibility fabrics and retroreflective materials.
It specifies the chromaticity levels to which fabrics need to be dyed in terms of performance and atmospheric pressures in order to comply safety standards.
Natural fibre garments have a lower chromaticity level due to the nature of the fabric.
However, only when a polyester garment is deemed a risk to the wearer in certain applications, should cotton or wool be worn in its place.
Class F = Daytime fluorescent
Class R = Retroreflective material
Class RF = Retroreflective and fluorescent
Class NF = High daytime visibility NON Fluorescent
This standard refers to how a garment is constructed using fabrics compliant to 1906.4 above.
There has to be over 0.2m2 of unbroken fluoro fabric on both the front and back of a garment in the upper torso (not including the sleeves).
The fluoro must not be broken with non fluoro fabric within the 0.2m2 area on both the front and back from the top of the shoulders to the waist.
It MUST encircle the body up to that measurement, so no full side panels up to armpit level are permitted.
This standard also explains the position of the retroreflective tapes on the garment and the width and quantity used.
These tapes should not detract from the 0.2m2 measurement required.
Class D = Daytime use
Class N = Night time use using retroreflective material
Class D/N = Day/night use
This standard refers to the capability of a fabric to protect skin against solar ultra violet radiation (known as UPF = ultra violet protection factor).
This standard is an additional bonus to the garment rather than an essential requirement for hi-visibility standards but often specified from specific industry users.
