BNSF Railway approached us to make some custom caddy vests for their Golf tournament. Of course we said “No Prob!” We created some White and HiVis caddy vests with 3M reflective trim. Thanks golfers… glad to help!

Safety vests worn while installing a new switch between Flagstaff and Williams Arizona keep these BNSF(Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway) workers on the job. The welder on the left (standing up with a tool in his hand) has a fire resistant vest to protect him from arc flash burns and molten slag. What makes these safety vests unique? Sportex.
Sportex Safety listens to their customers. When BSNF welder requested specific improvements we delivered. They wanted a cooler jacket but heavier sleeves … so now all of our welding jackets incorporate 11 Ounce Sleeves regardless of 7 Ounce, 9 Ounce or 11 Ounce body fabric. This keeps their arms protected while allowing for a cooler overall comfort level.
Workers rely on the comfort, fit and breathability of our ultra cool vests. Custom designed pocket and utility configurations are engineered into the safety apparel. We take the most pride in our Hot Work and Electrical Arc Flash rated products as we pioneered bringing Hi Visibility – ANSI STYLE and F-1506 / 70E together into one garment for the welders, mechanics and electrical signal teams.
Safety vests are just a portion of the Personal Protective Apparel we supply and manufacture here in Tempe AZ.
If your work team has specific apparel requirements Sportex Safety is here to serve. Logos, branding and design work are a common part of our custom apparel services.
