CoolShirt® Multi-Person Cooling Station
Large 15-gallon cooling capacity for use with AquaVest™. Cooling station cools up to 6 people simultaneously. Uses standard 110 V standard plug. 8 and 20 ft. water hoses are available.
Glacier Tek™ NuCool™ Vest
To experience the comfort you need, simply put on a Glacier Tek™ Original Cool Vest or UniTech NuCool™ Vest. Each features a heavy-duty front zipper, side elastic straps and over-the-shoulder adjustability, designed to fit a wide range of body sizes. Cool Vest and NuCool Vest each provide a natural, comfortable solution to heat stress.
Cool Vest and NuCool™ Vest enable the wearer to maintain a comfortable temperature in even the most extreme heated work environments. Thanks to patented renewable phase-change cooling technology, Cool Vest and NuCool™ Vest remain thermally stable at 59°F (15°C) for up to 2.5 hours in 100°F (38 °C).
More comfortable than disposable or cotton scrubs, CoolTech™ wicks moisture away from the body and dries quickly. Tight weave and an anti-static grid provide optimal protection. Scrubs are embedded with a thin anti-theft wire (for use with UniTech’s Garment Sentry™ system) preventing them from leaving the facility. Long sleeve shirt, short sleeve shirt, and long pants are all available in sizes Small-4XL.

Available in sizes Medium-6XL.
