Picture this: it’s a warm and sunny day in the nursing home where you just finished giving room 103 a much needed thorough cleaning. It isn’t even lunchtime yet, but your shirt is already drenched in sweat.
A recognisable scenario? It would be for most of us. But there is a solution! One that keeps your staff or your patients cool and comfortable in the warmest conditions: COOLMAX® fabric.
COOLMAX® - what is it and why you should know about it
COOLMAX® is a highly breathable, sweat-wicking fabric that dries much faster than cotton. The material consists of manipulated polyester fibres with four channels. These channels make the fabric breathable compared to other fabrics, as they allow moisture/liquid to be drawn away from the skin.
The fabric was developed to regulate body temperature. Moisture wicks through the material via its channels to the outer surface area. Here, the moisture evaporates at a much higher rate. This function allows the material to dry much faster than traditional fabrics.
For which kinds of apparel would COOLMAX® be used?
WHITEWEAR supplies several types of clothing in COOLMAX® quality. Mostly T-shirts, but also singlets, long sleeves, polo shirts, and leggings. Together, we can figure out what suits your company or healthcare institution best. We will translate your needs and wishes into the right qualities and fit for your staff or patients.
Lastly, we add a dashing splash of colour to ensure your new workwear or patient apparel matches your brand colours and corporate identity.
More information about our range of knitted or woven textiles and apparel for hospitals, nursing homes, and professional kitchens can be found on our Products site.
Why COOLMAX is an excellent choice for workwear and staff apparel
The secret lies in the fabrics’ breathability. This allows you to create comfortable workwear or staff apparel for personnel in numerous different functions and situations. The OEKO-Tex® certified soft COOLMAX® fabrics are an excellent choice for a singlet, or a T-shirt worn under a lab coat. Or maybe your workwear is not complete without a long sleeve shirt – here, we find our navy-blue model to be particularly popular.
Whatever your needs are, WHITEWEAR delivers the right COOLMAX® products for your staff, whatever their job description. Think of uniforms for your cleaning staff or workwear for your public park maintenance personnel. Even nursing staff and caretakers will love to get a COOLMAX® uniform.

COOLMAX Is an excellent choice for patient apparel
When it comes to patient apparel, your patients will likely be pleased with the temperature regulating abilities of COOLMAX® styles. A pair of leggings, trousers, or a long-sleeved shirt will keep your patients comfortable and neither too warm nor too cold.
