Clo Ratings

The insulation of clothes are often measures in the unit "Clo", where

CLO = 0 Corresponds to a naked person

CLO = 1 Corresponds to the insulating value of clothing needed to maintain a person in comfort sitting at rest in a room at 70° with air movement of 0.1 m/s and humidity of less than 50%

How Much Warmth is Needed?

When it comes to cold weather PPE, you’ll see many manufacturers offering temperature ratings or guarantees on insulated winter safety gear. Trusting a universal temperature rating isn’t a good idea. There are too many outside factors that can affect a worker’s ability to combat cold weather.

At HexArmor®, we rely on science.

To measure thermal properties, the C-L-O, or CLO rating system has been the standard for decades. The CLO scale is used to measure the warmth levels of various materials, including thermal protection like Thinsulate™.

 

Thinsulate logo

3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation is warm yet lightweight, powerful yet thin. It helps trap and holds body heat, while allowing moisture to escape. The extremely fine microfibers in Thinsulate insulation help trap air and block body radiant heat loss, making it an efficient insulator. The high warmth-to-thickness ratio of this insulation enables garment designs with less bulk and enhanced freedom of movement.

C40

Found in our 2023, 2123 and 4031 offers an exceptional level of protection for the majority of the United States, except in the most extreme conditions.

C100

Found in the 2026 and 2033 is rapidly becoming the glove of choice for harsher conditions, such as those found in parts of Canada, North Dakota and Alaska. The added protection does add a little bulk and reduces dexterity, so you need to test to make sure you need that much thermal protection.

G150

For the most extreme conditions, consider the 4050 Arctic Mitt. With G150 Thinsulate®, this is hands-down the warmest glove on the market, while still providing Level 5 Cut, puncture and impact protection.

Cold Weather Safety Eyewear

In the cold winter months, having safety eyewear with high-performing anti-fog coatings isn’t just a luxury, it’s a must. Workers’ warm breath and body heat contrast with the cold climate, causing safety glasses to fog up in an instant. This results in workers having to take their glasses off to see, subjecting them to potential hazards and compliance issues.

HexArmor’s TruShield®2F and TruShield®2SF offer permanent anti-fog coatings on the inside and outside of the lenses. Because we utilize a unique flow coating process, our proprietary anti-fog coatings are 3x thicker than competitors dip-coated lens, which leads to superior performance. No matter how many times our anti-fog coatings are cleaned, they will not wash off or diminish in performance, keeping workers’ vision clear and eyes safe.
