Fabrics Engineered to Protect

These include smart fabrics which can be used for lining systems that are capable of wicking moisture away from the wearer, and tough, durable outer shell fabrics which form barriers against heat, flame, fuel and chemical splashes

We engineer woven textiles to impart a wide range of bespoke properties and performance characteristics which are designed to offer maximum protection in even the most demanding and hostile working environments. Arville PPE fabrics are lightweight, offering the wearer comfort, confidence and ease of movement with high levels of inherent protection from potential hazards
