Protective clothing must first pass a number of tests so that it can bear the designation “high-visibility protection”. Having passed these, it officially meets the requirements of the EN ISO 20471 standard for high-visibility clothing. Various individual factors determine which high-visibility clothing is right for a company. See for yourself what makes our high-visibility clothing so popular.

The safety factor

Our CWS Profi Line High Vis range of high-quality high-visibility clothing makes you safely visible – day and night. Additional reflective strips in the shoulder zone give the wearer added safety. Our rental service ensures that the wearer is protected over the long term as well. Because: when selecting the right high-visibility clothing it is not only important to comply with the current standard but also to make sure that the clothing is kept in good condition and that the reflectors are checked for condition and function. The specialists at CWS regularly check the protective functions of the clothing and ensure its maintenance and repair where necessary. We make sure that your protective clothing complies with the latest safety regulations at all times. It goes without saying that we also pick up the worn clothing items from our customers’ premises, wash them in our laundries, repair them professionally if necessary, and deliver the freshly laundered clothing back again.

High cotton content = high wearing comfort

The CWS Profi Line High Vis range of high-visibility clothing impresses with its high cotton content of 50 percent. Cotton fibres are naturally skin-friendly, tear-resistant and hard-wearing and thus ideal for workwear. Even during periods of great physical exertion, our high-visibility clothing ensures a comfortable fit and adapts to the movements of its wearer.


CWS figures among the leading providers of Fairtrade-certified workwear. Each item of clothing in our CWS Profi Line High Vis collection contains a label with a code. By entering this on the Fairtrade website at www.fairtrade-deutschland.de, the wearer gets information on farmers’ cooperative from which the Fairtrade cotton originated. The farmers’ cooperatives not only receive a fixed minimum price for their cotton but also an additional premium that they can use for larger community projects. The environment is likewise protected, because the use of genetically manipulated cotton, chemical fertilizers or large amounts of water is prohibited.
