Cathedral of Electrons T shirt

£ 29.00

Battersea Power Station: !929-1983. The exterior was partially designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, this was mainly to assuage public opinion, he was renting out his reputation, Theo Halliday did most of the architectural work. That the building was beautiful as well as functional is reflected in it being referred to as a Cathedral of Electrons or Temple of Power. In the 1950's when the "B" generator came on stream it was the UK's 3rd most powerful generator: Coal in via The Thames and electrons out via cables.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
