All good product designs begin with good research. That is why at Climate Technical gear we continue to be involved with research and development. We start with finding out how things work by testing fabrics and other materials in a lab. We find out what best moves moisture or what insulates the best, what floats and what can burn and what doesn’t. In the lab we put fabric and material through their paces to better understand how they work and then how they work together. We are textile experts with a significant bank of knowledge in many areas.
Next we understand how things interact with us. What keeps us dry when it rains and what keeps us dry when we sweat. How do we stay warm in the cold and cool in the heat. What will keep us protected for an electric arc or a sudden burst of flame or steam. We even study what happens to all of these things when we are in the water trying to survive. Whatever the element is that you need protection from we have studied it and understand what works.
Last we put everything together to build gear that protects and works. It is not enough for our gear just to protect but it also needs to be easy to wear and comfortable. It also needs to be affordable. Great gear that no one can afford is no better than cheap gear that won’t protect.
We will never stop learning and trying to understand how things work and how they can work for us. We also will never forget that our best lessons have come from the field and from the people who wear our gear. Learning in a lab is great but our real lessons come from you our customers.
