The extra heavy duty vinyl aprons that you’ll find on our site are designed to keep your torso dry while everything around is getting soaked. Specifically made for anyone that works with wet tools such as wet stone grinders, wet stone polishers, or wet tile saws. These aprons are waterproof and will effectively keep your torso dry, however if you want to keep your arms dry as well, consider purchasing a set of protective vinyl sleeves to go with the extra heavy duty vinyl apron.
An apron is a pretty common piece of outer protective clothing, which is primarily designed to cover the front of a person in order to provide protection to clothes from stains, wear, and tear. Aprons are found in use in many industries including food, hospitality, nursing, domestic, and manufacturing. They are available in several styles from the simple waist apron, which just protects from the waist down, to full body length apron that protect from the neck to the floor. The waist apron is most commonly used in the home or kitchen as a dishrag or a place to wipe your hands. Full body aprons are ideal for working environments where you know you’re going to get messy.
Since aprons can be made out of just about any flexible material, they are great for all sorts of different applications. Depending on your application, you should choose one made of a material that best suits your requirements. If your looking to keep your clothes clean while working in the garden or while in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes, a cloth apron will best work for you. Where carpenters will be better suited with an apron made of leather, which includes several pockets for holding their tools. However, if you’re a fabricator and working with wet tools to shape stone, your needs will require an extra heavy-duty vinyl apron, like the ones you’ll find on our site. These aprons will provide you with the best protection from flying stone chips, provide storage for additional polishing pads, and will keep your torso dry.
When wearing your apron, it is very important that it stays securely in place. That’s why both standard style waist aprons and full body aprons include two straps, one on either side, which can be tied behind your back to keep them in place. For added security, full body aprons will also include a strap that is hung behind your neck in order to keep the upper portion of the apron in place, allowing it to protect your torso. Some aprons have shoulder straps designed to cross behind your back making them easier to put on. However, we have found that more protection is provided with the neck strap and that’s why our extra heavy-duty aprons include the neck strap instead.
