 HSP005363 - HLINE H301 Trousers smallROISSY, France, November 25, 2015 — Honeywell (NYSE: HON), has launched, HLine, a new range of professional workwear that combines style, comfort and high technical performance. Inspired by the growing popularity of outdoor sports clothing, HLine is designed for workers in construction, maintenance and professional trades such as plumbing, carpentry and roofing.

“Workers in these industries want to be protected, they also want to feel free and have work clothes that are on trend,” said David Guiho, product manager at Honeywell Industrial Safety. “We therefore challenged our R&D team to develop a new range that included parkas, softshell, stretch jackets, fleeces and trousers that combine high street style with rugged performance. HLine is durable, comfortable and innovative, and incorporates the latest technical materials to protect against abrasion, tearing and to endure repetitive twisting and turning.”HSP005363 - HLine H301 Trousers with holsters small

Key products in the new range include the HLine 3-in-1 parka, a 100 percent water and wind proof jacket for maximum weather protection. Consisting of two layers, both of which can be separated and worn individually, the parka’s exterior layer is highly tear resistant, thanks to a specialist rip-stop Polyamide Nylon weave. Underneath, the lightweight abrasion and water resistant padded jacket provides extra warmth in cold weather. The innovative new hood design greatly increases the wearer’s field of vision in wet weather due to the transparent side panels.

Lightweight jackets from the HLine range include a hiking-inspired softshell and the stretch jacket – both providing comfort and flexibility. The waterproof softshell reflects high street popularity for this style of jacket, and has three layers of breathable fabric that protect users against the wind.

There are three pairs of new trousers in the HLine range all of which include Honeywell’s patented easy-to-insert kneepad compartment system. This provides wearers smart protection against penetration from gravel and other dirt, and comfort when kneeling on hard surfaces.

The premium H301 trousers feature multiple pockets including one offering dust-free protection for mobile phones and an easy access cutter/ruler pocket. A range of holsters enable tools to be quickly and easily stored when not being used.HSP005363 - HLine small

Durability comes from high abrasion and tear resistant fabrics including Ripstop and Cordura®which are machine washable with double seams to provide added reinforcement. The H301 (with holster pockets) and H302 trousers include an elastic waist that is higher at the back and a special crotch design. Also, the waist of the H303 trousers is made with high stretch fabric that provides greater comfort and freedom of movement when flexing, twisting and bending and prevents the risk of tearing.

Other products in the new range include another parka for protection against cold, rain and wind and a breathable technical polo shirt. All of the products are available in small to 3XL and are in a stylish red and grey/black colourway.
