Welding injuries happen too often due to improper protection
Appleton, WI (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
Hobart Welding Products introduces a variety of welding apparel, meeting the demand for quality protective gear at an affordable price. New items include leather and cloth welding jackets, a leather apron and welding sleeves. Ideal for the garage, shop or outdoor use, the new clothing items are made from high-quality materials designed to keep sparks, heat and ultra-violet rays from harming exposed skin.
"Welding injuries happen too often due to improper protection," states Caleb Krisher, product manager, Hobart Welding Products. "Safety apparel such as fire-retardant sleeves and leather jackets take only a moment to throw on and protect against nasty burns and otherwise needless trips to the emergency room."
Hobart safety apparel is offered through farm/ranch and hardware/tool retailers in the U.S. and Canada. Prices and availability may vary by retailer.
- Leather Welding Jacket - To meet the protection demands of most welding applications this jacket is made from a high-quality split cowhide, heavy-duty stitching and reinforced snaps, which increase its durability.

Hobart's Leather Welding Jacket is available in three sizes: L, XL, XXL. MSRP $60
