Hazards in the workplace are varied and the threat of diseases and viruses transmitted by mosquitoes and other insects present a real threat in certain environments.

Across Australia and the Asia Pacific Region we are frequently seeing Dengue Fever outbreaks, Malaria cases and growing numbers of insect borne disease. The challenge for businesses that work in these areas comes in managing that risk and keeping employees and contractors safe from these life threatening vector borne diseases.


Anthony Elliott, Managing Director of Elliotts saw the need for insect repellent clothing after working closely with several businesses that operate across Northern Australia and PNG.

"After working with clients that operate in remote environments susceptible to insect borne disease, we saw the need to develop a new insect repellent safety clothing range, to provide companies and contractors protection from both their work environment and the insects that live in the surrounding habitat."

Vector Shield Insect Repellent Apparel range is the latest development in specialised insect repellent apparel design specifically for industrial applications with a difference the Vector Shield fabric is Oeko-tex certified, safe to wearand the process hasproven effectiveness.

"Vector Shield has been designed to provide durable, long lasting, highly effective personal insect protection in fabrics and apparel specially designed for hard wearing industrial applications and is also available in high visibility colours conforming to AS1906. Vector Shield is different to existing insect repellent apparel and has been used and proven to be effective in military applications for many years." 

The safety of the fabric is based on the manufacturing process utilising technology that distributes the treatment to one side of the fabric. So you not only have the benefit of wearing your protection near your skin but have the confidence that the majority of the permethrin treatment is not against your skin.

Wearing insect repellent apparel such as Vector Shield should just be part of a vector control program. Vector Shield provides the perfect safety clothing solution that also repels insects and increases the safety of you team.
