Parkex, the British Parking Association‘s flagship event is an important date in the Keltic calendar. This year was a tremendous success. Our new security workwear was an absolute hit! Thrilled with this, we thought we’d tell you a little bit about the day.
Keltic’s New Security Workwear
Well, we weren’t sure how the berets would go down, but it turns out they were a surprise hit! The new customer-friendly uniforms we have developed with NSL’s uniform working group, which will soon be hitting the streets on NSL’s Westminster contract, got a resounding thumbs up this week at Parkex. We debuted our stylish new high performance Ambassador jacket, our water-resistant next generation jumper/fleece replacement the Patrol Softshell, the technical moisture-wicking Patrol Shirt, and the hybrid combat/smart Patrol Trouser. I think it is safe to say that we have never had such a positive reaction at Parkex – not even for our pink parking people (who did put in another appearance this year, armed with candyfloss and gingerbread CEOs). There was even a qeue to get a closer look at the garments at one point!
The Next Phase in Parking Uniforms
All of our new security workwear uses advanced, technical fabrics, meaning that it is highly breathable and quick drying. It also means that by layering these garments up, you can also achieve excellent warmth without the usual bulk that is needed by less technical more old-fashioned fabrics. “It’s the same idea as ski-ing and snowboarding garments” says Keltic Director David Barry, “the layering of technical fabrics gives great movement and flexibility, but still keeps the wearer warm and comfortable. This is the next phase in parking uniforms. Garments designed by CEOs, for CEOs, giving them the comfort and movement they are used to from their own personal clothes, to work.”
The garments displayed will be available from the end of July. If you’d like a sample or any further information, please call our Parking Department on 08450 66 66 99. Or you can make an online enquiry here.
