A WORKPLACE THAT REQUIRES THE CORRECT WORKWEAR
Denmark is surrounded by water, making fishing a traditional and natural business in Denmark. Since ELKA’s foundation in 1958 one of our main objectives has been the outfitting and protection of fishermen on the Danish fishing fleets. After sixty years of sending these heavy duty garments out to sea to work in severe weather conditions, we are proud to say that they stand up to the test every time. Maybe you have noticed the yellow ELKA braces around the dock areas?
FISHING XTREME – CORE COLLECTION
The Fishing Xtreme is the core collection made of 100% waterproof heavy duty PVC/Polyester. The products are simply designed, always in solid florescent orange or with navy contrast, in a relaxed fit that makes it ideal for layering. The wide collection of oil and cold resistant garments with the yellow ELKA braces is known for the high durability and used by fishermen all over the world for all-purpose fishing.
Fishing Xtreme was where ELKA started out and we have collaborated with fishermen through more than 60 years to develop a range of clothing that live up to the requirements when working in this extreme environment. Quality and function go hand in hand to protect against the extremes of nature.
UNLIMITED – PREMIUM COLLECTION & HIGH VISIBILITY
The UNLIMITED collection features a range of high visibility florescent yellow and navy contrast garments with reflective details, which provides safety both on the ship as well as when working on the docks. ELKA UNLIMITED is the premium collection of garments produced in a soft and heavy duty PVC quality with oil resistance and excellent cold-weather properties. The products have high end Prismatic reflective tape, with a highly efficient return of light. A brighter and tighter beam extends much further giving prismatic tapes an operating range beyond the thousand-foot mark.
The relaxed fit of the products makes them ideal for layering and the longer back panel provides added protection, while working at sea. These top of the line products also offer neoprene cuffs as a standard feature as well as extra reinforcements in the most exposed areas of the torso and legs for extra abrasion resistance and durability.
FISHING SHIELD – THE TOUGHEST 2-LAYER FISHING WEAR
The latest development within our fishing range. A two layer product with tough cordura on the outside, for maximum abrasion resistance and a welded, stretchable PU/ nylon inner layer to gurantee absolute waterproof abilities while working the high seas. The products have been tested under extreme conditions by members of the Canadian fishing fleet. The excellent tear strength and high resistance to abrasion makes these products the toughest on the market and are wind- and water resistant
NORDIC FISHING – FLEXIBLE AND STRETCHABLE MATERIAL
The Nordic Fishing collection is developed in collaboration with European fishermen, to provide garments where focus is on the freedom of movement compared to traditional heavy duty PVC. Working in this industry sometimes requires a tough and durable garment, which at the same time is flexible and stretchable. This collection of workwear is comprised of a variety of medium duty PVC fabrics, where a lighter and stretchable material on the back and hood enhance comfort and movement. All fabrics are oil and cold resistant and with a focus on details and functionality.
The jacket is made shorter, and the sides of the bib and brace is made higher, to make sure the water does not come inside while working. This creates much freedom of movement but does not compromise the waterproof qualities. The high chin offers possibility of tight closure around the head, preventing water and wind from entering.
ELKA WADERS – FLEXIBLE AND STRETCHABLE MATERIAL
Chest and thigh waders have occupied a central position in ELKA’s product range for many years to satisfy the demands made by angling and deep sea fishing. Our European fabrication in soft, hardwearing 600g PVC/Polyester guarantees outstanding comfort and durability.
With a background in the frigid winter temperatures of Scandinavian fishing ports Elka provides protection from the elements with technological know-how and a wealth of experience used to produce waterproof garments.
The ELKA range of clothing for commercial fishing and food processing is based on more than 60 years of experience with wind- and waterproof workwear for professionals. Through many years of dedication to the European fishing industry, we have developed a wide assortment in close co-operation with the professional fishermen, who have great demands in relation to strength, comfort, and functionality.
Our garments have been handmade in our own factories since the 1958. Our customers benefit greatly that we are able to offer production at our own European factory. This ensures e.g. a high uniformity in quality, great flexibility and a short delivery time of only 4-6 weeks.
