Construction workers in the UAE have been given the opportunity to try out air-conditioned (A/C) vests, which are made from special cooling fabric and function with the aid of water.

The high-tech apparel was distributed by Emirates NBD as part of a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative during Ramadan.

After being submerged in water for five to 10 minutes, the vests reduce users’ body temperatures by 5°C to 7°C for up to eight hours.

In the following video, labourers who participated in the scheme explain how the A/C vests helped to make them more comfortable in the summer heat.
