Product Development and Certifications

«W» stands for high quality and safety 

"The Wenaas W" has a special meaning to our customers of Work-clothes, Uniforms, Gloves and Safety Footwear. When wearing our products, you can be assured you are as comfortable as possible, protected and cared for. Our logo has a special meaning and stands for high quality and safety. The Wenaas W means that you can be sure that our products are well suited for the assignment to be carried out. It also guarantees that the product is certified according to the latest EN-standards. When choosing the Wenaas “W” you are secured for and can focus on your tasks, all while protected from any health and safety risks at work.    


Our Workwear and Uniforms are characterized by a high-quality, comfortable, and functional design. Behind every design, seam, choice, and detail there is careful work and extensive knowledge. When you buy a product from Wenaas, you can be certain that quality is paramount throughout all production processes - from sketch to approved end-product.

The functionality and durability of the product defines in many cases the quality. High quality products that last longer are adaptable, maintainable, and repairable. A design cared for a longer product life provides healthy ecosystems with lower consumption of natural and raw materials, environmental production operations and less waste. To lower our impact of textile production and waste on the environment we use environmentally friendly materials such as Lenzing TENCEL™ Lyocell, Lenzing FR®, merino wool, recycled polyester, and organic cotton in our garments production, as well as Blue Sign dyeing process.

We ensure that our entire supply chain and production of Workwear and Uniforms - from raw material to finished product follows international requirements and standards. In all our developments we are conscious about the quality terms that are important in the production of our products. We therefore emphasize that the right quality for the purpose of the product not only can increase user experience, but also reduce cost and at the same time have a positive impact on the environment.

Our Product Development department works every day to ensure that developments deliver accordingly to the Wenaas “W” by;  

  • Fiber-and material mixtures and bindings.
  • Functional fit and weight.
  • Seams and technical solutions.
  • Dyeing and finishing process.
  • Test reports that document quality level.
