Red Dirt International has launched the Red Dirt Cooling Work Shirt to the first customers in Perth.The Red Dirt work shirt meets the demands of the mining, construction, and oil and gas industries:
- Affordable (less expensive that major brands)
- Innovative, inexpensive, disposable cooling insert (works better in humid, or sweaty conditions)
- Light-weight, 100% cotton, breathable fabric
- Vibrant, durable high-visibility colour
- Exceptional manufacturing (stitching and seams)
The innovative cooling inserts ship dry, and are lightweight. Soak the inserts in fresh water, and chill or freeze overnight. Pack 2 to 3 of the chilled, disposable, replaceable inserts in an insulated container. (The inserts are made of food-grade materials and can safely be used to keep a meal cool before use in the shirt.) Slide the inserts in to the zipper pouch on the back of the neck when conditions get hot. (Australian patent 2010101331)
We recommend 2 inserts a day, during the hottest parts of the day. Humidity and sweat improve the ability for the chilled insert to conduct heat out of the neck and carotid arteries. The cooling inserts improve comfort during strenuous work.
When the Temperature Rises, Risks Rise Too
Hot environments, and exertion cause the body’s core temperature to rise. If the outdoor temperature is cooler than the body, body heat slowly dissipates through the natural processes including exhaling, sweating, and blood flow changes. When the outside temp is hotter, or more humid than the body, the body’s natural cooling becomes less effective. A person’s core body temperature can be (too) hot, even when a person’s skin feels cooler than the air.
The body’s natural reaction to heat, sweating, tends to make workers even more uncomfortable, less attentive, and less productive. By adding the conductive-cooling to specific areas of the body, a person feels more comfortable, and focused. The advantage is that conductive cooling works, even in humid, or sweaty conditions. A focused person is safer, and less likely to be caught out by a workplace risk.
