Personal Lifeline System

Petzl Lifeline System WEBThe ASAP Personal Lifeline System is Petzl’s solution for protecting workers from at-height falls with the ASAP mobile fall arrester. An easy-to-use and effective PPE, the ASAP moves freely along the rope without manual intervention. In the case of a fall or sudden acceleration, the device locks onto the rope and stops the worker. One advantage of the ASAP is that the locking mechanism won’t be affected if the user grabs the rope above the device or the device itself.

The personal fall arrest system contains an ASAP mobile fall arrester, an ASAP’SORBER shock absorber, OXAN connectors and the RAY vertical lifeline. When used in conjunction, the system meets ANSI Z359.15 certification.

FR Hi-Dex Glove

Youngstown FR Glove WEBYoungstown’s new FR Hi-Dex Glove (Item 12-3475-60) is designed for maximum comfort and dexterity while still offering next-level protection.

UltraSoft Hi-Viz Work Shirt

Radians FR Shirt WEBHistorically, FR clothing was constructed with stiff and heavy fabrics that were rather uncomfortable to wear.

Engineered with 7-ounce Westex UltraSoft FR fabric and double-shrunk technology, this work shirt offers flame resistance for the life of the garment and keeps you visible in low-light conditions with 2-inch 3M segmented reflective tape, which also aids in comfort and worker mobility.

This CAT 2 shirt, which is NFPA 2112 Certified and UL listed, is meticulously crafted and engineered with features that improve the garment’s durability, comfort and performance. It features a placket front with button-up closure; breast pockets with flap closures to keep your essentials close and secure; sleeve placket with two button cuffs; and a rounded tail and hemmed bottom for a more tailored look. The shirt is available in sizes small to 6X.

Hi-Grip Xtreme Glove Protectors

Hi Line Glove Protectors WEBAs the use of technology expands daily into many aspects of our lives, the message of safety and incident prevention is more important than ever. Technology use places increasing demands on the electrical infrastructure and the individuals who must maintain and expand it.

Individuals in the field continually provide important feedback regarding safety and productivity, and this inspired the team at Hi-Line to pursue important design upgrades to their Hi-Grip Xtreme glove protectors.

The Hi-Grip Xtreme glove protectors are now arc rated to ASTM F2675/F2675M-19 standards. They offer protection up to 28 cal/cm² and ANSI Level 2 cut resistance. In addition to the all-leather cuff, the secure straps have been upgraded to reinforced leather.

New sizes and mitt-style protectors are now available with an improved thumb design that provides greater dexterity. The Hi-Grip Xtreme glove protectors still feature a full silicone-grip palm that provides supreme control, along with a Kevlar underlay and Kevlar stitching for maximum strength. They have been rigorously field tested for durability and include a wear guard on the top of the hand for extra protection.

Voltage and Current Detector

Safeguard Voltage Detector WEBCompass is a lightweight, non-contact high-voltage and current detector. Once attached to the underside brim of any standard hard hat, its advanced notification system will quickly alert the user to the presence of voltage and current on any work site.

Compass detects both overhead and underground high-voltage sources. Once a field is detected, users are notified of their proximity and direction toward the energized source using visual and audible alerts. Unlike other non-contact detectors in the market, Compass has a digital interface that allows users to choose between four different sensitivity settings, effectively giving them the ability to customize the tool to virtually any work environment. Its placement on the hard hat also delivers two important benefits: instant visual notifications of any nearby threat and 360-degree threat detection around the user.

At Safeguard Equipment, safety is a lifestyle. We take it seriously for our customers and their families. To date in 2019, the Compass has saved eight lives. As a result, numerous major utilities have mandated its use among their workforce.

Like all Bullard hard hats, the AboveView is designed for users to experience the ultimate comfort while on the job.

Welding Glove

PIP Welding Glove WEBWelding is a dangerous job. Gas, flame, sparks and blinding light – nothing can be left to chance. It is important that you choose the right safety product for the job. High-performance safety products not only help prevent injury but can help maximize worker productivity and the quality of your welds.

Aside from advanced burn protection, the Ironcat 6144 is fully lined with Kevlar to provide ANSI A4 cut resistance and tensile strength, and it is inherently fire resistant. Covered by a top-grain kidskin leather, it is lightweight and more supple than goatskin.

ProStack Cribbing Blocks

DICA Slot Lock WEBDICA has debuted a new addition to the ProStack Cribbing product line. ProStack Slot Lock Cribbing Blocks are engineered to stack and lock together, giving users the ability to safely gain needed cribbing height in unlevel conditions. Developed with customer input, the new lighter-weight and lower-cost ProStack product is designed for use with the types of equipment used in utility, tree care, concrete construction, and crane and rigging markets.

The setup of a SafetyTech Base Pad and two ProStack Blocks has a 100,000-pound working load limit and a maximum allowable pressure of 500 psi. Slot Lock flanges interlock with a DICA SafetyTech base pad and with each subsequent block layer when positioned in alternating directions. Each layer increases cribbing height by 5 inches, and the surface allows room for outrigger feet measuring up to 18 inches by 18 inches.

Each ProStack Slot Lock block weighs less than 30 pounds, which minimizes operator fatigue and provides quick setup and breakdown times. Molded grips make it easy for one person to carry and position blocks, even when wearing gloves. TuffGrip handles can be added as an option to facilitate carrying two blocks at once. DICA’s Hi-Viz orange TuffGrip handles are waterproof and resistant to UV light, hydraulic fluids and road chemicals.

Unlike most cribbing solutions commonly deployed in the field, ProStack’s engineered material is extremely strong and impervious to weather and job site conditions. ProStack Cribbing is made from a combination of post-consumer recycled material and additives to produce a strong, reliable and environmentally friendly solution. All ProStack cribbing products are warrantied for 25 years against rot, insect infestation, splitting, cracking and splintering.

Horizontal Lifeline

Guardian Horizontal Lifeline WEBGuardian Fall Protection, a Pure Safety Group brand, has unveiled its new HTL Horizontal Lifeline (HLL) for use in fall protection systems. The horizontal anchorage accommodates two workers in fall arrest at 30-, 60- and 100-foot lengths.

The HLL is ultra-lightweight and extremely durable. Due to the double-braided polyester rope functioning as the shock absorber, no inline shock absorber is required. Its built-in, inline tension swivel prevents tangling and keeps the HLL in an optimal position. It features nylon thimbles that protect the rope against wear and prevents loops. The HTL’s lower dynamic sag provides exceptional fall clearances.

The HTL kit includes the rope; tensioner to tighten and secure the lifeline; two O-rings for easy connection and smooth movement along the rope; two double-locking carabiners; two 6-foot crossarm straps; and a convenient carrying and storage bag.

The capacity of the Guardian HTL HLL is 130-310 pounds per worker. This product meets OSHA 1926 Subpart M and OSHA 1910 requirements and is assembled in the USA.
