Cooling Vests and T-Shirts

Radians Cooling Apparel JoomlaRadians, a leading manufacturer of high-quality safety products, has expanded their Arctic RadWear line with the introduction of their new cooling vests and cooling T-shirts.

Radians new cooling vests are made with Advanced ARCTIC Technology that uses a unique three-layer laminated fabric system that absorbs, stores and releases water to keep workers cool for hours. The layering system is waterproof and breathable, so your shirt remains dry during the cooling process.

The cooling vests feature an adjustable Velcro stretch waist that provides a comfortable, snug fit without restricting mobility. Available in blue (RCV10), red (RCV11) and yellow (RCV12), the vests are treated with SilverPlus anti-microbial protection to resist mold buildup and odors.

The technology moves moisture away from the skin and circulates it through the fabric to keep you cooler, longer. The cooling T-shirts are designed with a mesh side-seam insert and Max-Dri Technology. Both features maximize airflow to evaporate moisture quickly.

Zero-Band Headlamps

Nightstick Headlamps JoomlaIn the world of headlamps, you’ll see plenty of heavy-duty straps that fasten a headlamp to a helmet or hard hat. However, Nightstick believes that shouldn’t be the only option available. After all, even the best headbands and straps can wear down due to extensive use and constant exposure to the elements. So, Nightstick has introduced an entire series of Zero-Band Headlamps and includes a secure mounting mechanism with every light.

Until now, helmet mounting brackets historically have increased the overall cost of a headlamp. However, Nightstick’s addition of the model NS-HMC4 Hard Hat Clip Mount with every light effectively addresses this need. It also prevents the user from having to spend additional money and time searching for an aftermarket solution that securely fastens the light to their hard hat.

The NS-HMC4 easily and securely bonds to a hard hat using a sturdy, industry-approved PSA material. Inspired by attachment methods consistently used in mining industry cap lamps, each included helmet lamp bracket is designed to be lightweight and durable. The tilting-head design allows the user to change the light position without having to readjust. The Zero-Band Series offers users different functionality options, including four Intrinsically Safe Dual-Light (spotlight/floodlight) Headlamps and one Dual-Function (high-/low-beam) Headlamp model. No drilling is required.

The Zero-Band Headlamps feature models NSP-4608BC, XPP-5460GCX, XPP-5454GC, XPP-5452GC and XPP-5450GC. All five models are IP-X7 rated waterproof and feature an integrated stainless-steel clip that makes it possible to wear the headlamp securely. As a bonus, three AAA batteries are included to power each light.
