As technologies advance into the marketplace, so must our understanding of what those technologies are and how we can use them to improve our daily lives. Suddenly, old concepts about traditional products no longer apply . . .

EFFECTIVE PROTECTIVE APPAREL™

HOW WAS PROTECTIVE APPAREL FORMERLY CONSIDERED?
Most people have considered Protective Apparel in foodservice and kitchen operations to simply be cotton oven mitts, aprons, hot pads and other products which were supposed to protect kitchen workers against the dangers of burn injury. Unfortunately, these products have always fallen short of expectations.

WHAT COMPRISED PROTECTIVE APPAREL BACK THEN?
Protective Apparel itself was simple, quilted, cotton products which, whether for home or commercial use, were treated much as an "afterthought". They were cheap, and nobody took much time contemplating their purchase. In commercial foodservice environments, owners and operators didn't expect much from these products; they lasted a few weeks at best, they got dirty, they burned, they fell apart, and most of all they didn't protect.

THAT WAS THEN -- THIS IS NOW!! BurnGuard® Protective Apparel ushers in a new age in burn protection.

WHAT IS BURNGUARD® EFFECTIVE PROTECTIVE APPAREL?
BurnGuard® Effective Protective Apparel is like nothing else on the market today. Comparing BurnGuard® products to conventional products is like comparing a toy rocket to the space shuttle. BurnGuard® Effective Protective Apparel does the job and does it right: it truly and effectively protects the kitchen worker against burn injury. This is important at a time when the average Worker's Comp claim is running in excess of $1,700! BurnGuard® products are washable, so they can be kept sanitary. And they are durable, which translates into cost-effectiveness! BurnGuard® products are in fact composed of a system of elements which, when applied together, provide the most effective burn protection available anywhere. Protective Apparel will never be the same again.
