U-POWER offers you a wide range of summer work trousers and shorts, which can help you improve your comfort by ensuring all the safety features required for safety clothing.
Technical trousers are incredibly suitable for all those professions that often require repeat movements, push-ups and bendings to test the worker with constant physical efforts.
In these cases, the elasticity of the fabric is of high importance and responds to a need for comfort; it also responds to a protective function because, if you feel comfortable in the clothes you wear, without stress and impediments, you can remain more focused and attentive to what you do.
U-4 Way stretch is a technical fabric that responds to the need for comfort, functionality and resistance of this particular type of situation.
It is a high stretch fabric (14% Elastan), extremely comfortable and resistant to wear, tears, abrasions, and excellent chemical resistance.
The water-repellent treatment protects against external humidity and rain typical of the spring season (but also in case of a summer storm!) because the fabric does not absorb water and dries quickly, even after multiple washes.
The double weave texture avoids complete contact with the skin, which guarantees increased comfort and excellent breathability, ensuring proper wind protection.
The WORLD work trousers of the FUTURE line in U-4 Way Stretch fabric thus become the technical trousers par excellence. The material moves in four directions simultaneously, with excellent elasticity, without hindering movements, just like a second skin!
But, as we have seen before, there is another fundamental characteristic required for work trousers: functionality.
It is easy to say "pockets"; however, the small details can make a big difference. The back pockets of the WORLD trousers, for example, are slightly offset towards the outside of the leg to allow easier access for the hand even if you have to wear a fall-arrest harness.
A significant foresight of the attention that U-POWER pays in the design of its work clothes!
Also, they have bellows to increase the capacity and have a protective closure by way of a flap and a Velcro closure the second.
And, of course, the model is equipped with numerous other pockets: side, front, multifunctional, tool holder and concealed badge holder, all convenient and spacious.
Another crucial technical detail is the waist adjustment with an innovative retractable system to optimize the fit and increase safety. At the same time, the accentuated rear yoke provides more excellent protection of the lumbar area.
Work trousers are continuously under test: they are stressed by movement, rubbing, perhaps by contact with oil and greasy substances or chemicals, etc.
So, it is necessary to use robust and synthetic fabrics (to ensure comfort) and additional protection where appropriate.

The predominant cotton percentage (60%) ensures the fabric’s high quality - cotton is hypoallergenic! – whilst the presence of synthetic fibres increases their strength and elasticity.

CAN YOU USE SUMMER SHORT WORK TROUSERS ON THE CONSTRUCTION SITE? SUMMER: COMFORTABLE AND LIGHTWEIGHT CARGO PANTS
A highly debated topic in the summer months on construction sites is the allowed work clothing when workers complain about heat and sweating problems due to high temperatures, heat and sun rays.
In reality, the Occupational Safety Regulations do not provide for any derogation due to climatic factors. When necessary, the obligation to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) - for example, if you have to work on a scaffolding - must be respected.
However, if the work to carry out does not require a PPE requirement (not always, and not everyone works on scaffolding), and the employer allows it, you can safely use shorts and Bermuda shorts.
U-POWER offers different models of shorts ideal on hot days.
SUMMER is the sporty Bermuda Cargo, also perfect for leisure time, in stretch cotton canvas with triple stitching, closure with front zip and scratch-resistant button.
It is a very fresh and light Bermuda but at the same time durable, with double reinforcement fabric on the back and numerous pockets: two front, one back with velcro and two large side pockets.
It combines with the WAVE vest and is perfect not only for the construction site (when allowed) and for gardening, for the electrician, the plumber and carpenters in general.
