Industry and Trade - Special Expertise Required

Due to the often heavy soiling, the treatment of workwear from the industrial or trade sector requires the special expertise of our member organisations. Likewise, with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), their validated treatment processes play a crucial role in safeguarding the specific protective functions of the textiles.


Because of the often very severe soiling, processing working clothes from industrial companies and manual workers requires the special expertise of commercial laundries.

At the same time, however, the customer also benefits from the additional services provided by the textile professionals such as repairing minor damage or sewing on missing buttons for all types of protective clothing.

The service provided by RAL-approved laundries also includes adapting the quality and material of corporate clothing to suit the style, interior decor and ambience of the company offices. This service applies to almost all types of textiles:

Professional clothing

  • Working clothes
  • Business clothes

Personal protective equipment (PPE)

  • High-visibility warning clothing
  • Chemical protective clothing
  • Weatherproof clothing
  • Protective overalls for welders
  • Other textile PPE (personal protective equipment) on request

In the case of PPE (personal protective equipment), the validated processing procedures that a company that is a member of the German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services has to have are of vital importance when it comes to maintaining the special protective function of the textiles and so complying with legal requirements.
