It’s HOT! Stay Cool with Service Uniform

July is hot.

Very hot.

If you work outdoors then you know how incredibly hot the summers are here in Texas. It’s crucial to drink plenty of water and find shade when necessary to protect yourself, but it’s also important to wear the right uniform.

We’re not talking shorts and a tank top (although that may be the next best thing). Instead, Service Uniform will provide you with wicking uniforms that keep you dry during even the hottest parts of the day.

But what is wicking? Wicking means the fabric absorbs sweat by capillary action. Capillary action is the ability of liquid to flow in narrow spaces without the assistance of external forces. In simpler terms: wicking material keeps skin dry and helps avoid chafing and swings in body temperature.

Service Uniform and Red Kap Industries

So when working in the hot weather, cotton uniforms are not exactly your best friend. Cotton absorbs sweat but does not allow it to dry, causing damp spots in your uniform. Service Uniform uses Red Kap Touchtex technology to keep you dry and comfortable. Touchtex wicks sweat off the skin and spreads it over the fabric face where it evaporates within seconds. We understand how important uniforms are to you and your company, so we want to make sure that everyone is comfortable.

MAKE THE SWITCH! We are the family business you can trust.
