After two years of development and patents pending, Buckingham Manufacturing has partnered with RHINO Utilities to introduce the RHINO Buck-It Rail System. Before the system was available, you’d have your basic setup involving bucket hooks and tool aprons, and you almost never had exactly what you needed. Now, the RHINO Buck-It Rail System lets you customize each tool board, rail and bucket to fit your specific needs. Its patent-pending attachment system allows users to quickly and easily change up how and where the tools are stored. The system also enables you to remain more organized in the bucket, maximizing productivity.
Not only can you utilize your storage while in the bucket, but you can do so in your truck bins as well. With over 10 boards and 20 accessories available, the RHINO Buck-It Rail System offers something for everyone. And, as always, we can develop new options for your tools or work practices.
The CEN10 Safety Helmet from Bullard is the latest advancement in head protection from the company that invented the hard hat. The sleek, low-profile design of this safety helmet is offered in vented and non-vented models. This comfortable helmet features the world’s first and only auto-adjusting suspension, an integrated three-point chinstrap and a modern sporty look with a matte finish.
With the CEN10, you’ll find the reliability, comfort and toughness expected from a Bullard industrial hard hat. This helmet meets ANSI/ISEA Z89.1 Type I, Class E and G requirements. The vented model meets ANSI/ISEA Z89.1 Type I, Class C requirements.
The modern design of the CEN10 reduces peak force to the wearer’s neck and transmits less force to the head, providing additional protection to the user’s brain.
The CEN10 is well-suited for utility work, offering extreme comfort. Equipped with the patented FlexGlide suspension system, the helmet allows wearers to auto-adjust its fit for all-day comfort.
Utilizing a 2,500-volt output, the tester is calibrated to indicate the leakage values that would be present if 75KVAC were applied to a 12-inch section of the fiberglass tool for the wet test and 100KVAC per foot for the dry test.
The device has a six-hour battery life of continuous testing at 70 degrees and an estimated battery charge time of four hours. The tester can also operate on a standard 110-volt outlet. A bright digital display indicates an easy-to-read pass or fail. A test bar is also provided to ensure the tester is working properly.
This tester is portable, lightweight and comes complete with a padded carrying case and directions for proper use.

As with all of our rubber goods, this new product is 100% visually inspected, electrically tested and date stamped.
The ArcLite Air, designed to be the lightest-weight multihazard protective outerwear available, protects against both flash fires and electric arcs. It is great for gas and electric utility companies. The ArcLite Air meets the requirements of ASTM F1891 for arc flash protection, ASTM F2733 for flash fire protection and ANSI 107 for high-visibility.
This product uniquely addresses worker comfort by using a composite film with CCT Technology to make it 40% lighter than the lightest arc-rated product on the market. This eliminates PVCs, which store heat in the summer and make the wearer hot and uncomfortable. The ArcLite Air is in stock and ready to meet the demanding work environments of gas and electric utility companies.

RoadQuake is a highly engineered transverse portable rumble strip that is placed perpendicular to the direction of travel with the purpose of increasing driver awareness to oncoming changes in the road, such as work zones. As drivers’ vehicles travel over the PSS rumble strips, they will hear and feel the vibrations of RoadQuake. This sensation has been proven to redirect drivers’ attention back to the roadway as they travel safely through your work zone. Requiring no use of glue or fasteners to stay in place, deployment and retrieval of RoadQuake are quick and easy. Designed to reduce accidents and save lives, RoadQuake can significantly reduce the major causes of work zone intrusions, accidents and fatalities. Through our years of extensive testing and research, PSS has become the leading authority on portable rumble strips.
The Safety One snowcat operator certification is a comprehensive program including two days of intense classroom instruction and two days of practical field safety training.

Safety One’s certified snowcat operator training is delivered over four consecutive days and consists of 32 hours of material. Classes are limited to six students per instructor. This course offers detailed instruction on winter survival and environmental factors for workers exposed to harsh winter conditions in remote areas. It also teaches safety and survival skills related to cold injuries, hypothermia, emergency sheltering and fire-building techniques. Additional mechanical and technical instruction pertaining to vehicle operations will be covered.
The Tri-Clamp is a patented, multi-plane clamp that securely cradles bolts in accordance with NEMA spacing, then clasps itself to the mounting pad of a connecting jumper line. The resulting bolt stability creates a process efficiency that cuts connecting times by as much as 65%. A starter socket holds a nut, lock washer and washer in alignment, enabling lineworkers to safely seat all three onto their corresponding bolt in one motion, thereby eliminating dropped washers and facilitating faster, more systematic connections. This tool reduces lineworker exposure and makes an otherwise hazardous task more practical and much safer.
