The Best Boiler Suit Suppliers in South Africa in 2021

A new year is upon us, and if your workforce needs a bit of encouragement and motivation after the challenging year, it may be time to think about updating your uniforms. It may have even been so long since new uniforms were bought for the business, that they are starting to look a little unprofessional, or even increase the potential risk of injury to your employees in the process of them doing their jobs. If this is the case, it’s time to think about some new stock. Finding the right supplier for high quality boiler suits can be a challenge, but we’ve made it all the more easy for you by laying out three of the best in South Africa for you here. 

Why You Shouldn’t Skimp On Boiler Suits

Boiler suits are designed to protect the wearer from dirt, as well as harmful spillage. These may be real threats at some parts in your supply chain, and worse yet, can be a health and safety concern if you deal in chemicals and other potentially harmful and toxic substances. Boiler suits were designed to withstand the harshest conditions (let’s not forget that they were first worn by men charged with maintaining coal-fired boilers back in the day) but buying low quality designs could lead to more problems in the future. Don’t skimp on PPE, as it can lead to regular replacement costs, or worse yet, workplace injuries that could have been prevented altogether. 

Bova Safety Wear

If you’re on the market for boiler suits, Bova Safety Wear is a good place to start. Although they sell a wide range of PPE, their specialty includes conti and boiler suits, dust coats and work shirts. The company has been around for decades, and has a growing reputation as one of the market leaders on the African continent. Check out their Durafit reflective boiler suits in particular, which are made from 100% cotton and come in various colours. We love that they are transparent about their design process, which involves rigorous testing of new products, always with the safety of clients and their employees in mind.


Proudly South African from design to distribution, Dromex is all about offering maximum protection to their clients. The business gets major points from us for their high quality products, and especially so with their range of boiler suits. From the Poseidon oil & gas boiler suit, to the thermal jackets that compliment these suits beautifully, it’s clear to see that great craftsmanship and energy has gone into perfecting these designs for the market. Their warehouse is usually fully stocked, so if you’re looking to place a bulk order, this is a good route to explore.


Last but by no means least, G.Fox is one of the best places to consider buying your next batch of boiler suits. Their 100% cotton, flame retardant and acid resistant suit is a bestseller with good reason, protecting wearers in a multitude of industries across South Africa. G.Fox is a “one stop shop” for PPE, with over 12 000 clients across the continent. Needless to say, they are a leader in the field, and a good supplier to have on speed dial if you have any PPE needs.
