Magid (Romeoville, IL), a founding member of the Heat Safety Performance Coalition (HSPC), has partnered with leading heat safety researchers at the Korey Stringer Institute and textile company Mission to work toward preventing heat stress in the U.S.
Magid and HSPC-founding-partner, Mission, ushered in a new era of heat safety and developed innovative cooling gear called Magid Cool Powered by Mission. The line includes a portable cooling towel, neck gaiter, skull cap, and bandana that can be activated in under 60 seconds with just water (even hot water) and cools to 30 degrees below the average body temperature. The chemical-free gear is also machine washable and can be reactivated again and again through the workday.
After witnessing the positive impact of the gear and listening to feedback from industrial consumers, Magid and Mission decided to partner once again to extend its Magid Cool Powered by Mission line which will now include a safety skull cap with a neck nape, a sun defender hat with a neck nape, a hi-vis t-shirt, an FR cooling towel, and an FR neck gaiter.
The new items provide more body coverage and cooling in key areas like the neck and torso. But most exciting of all, workers who need FR protection in hot environments can now also get in on cooling gear! Two new options in Magid Cool FR gear meet the ASTM F1506 standard performance specification and are NFPA 70E Compliant.
