Review – HexArmor ColdRush Du Rag Cooling Cloth (by Tim Wiggins)

Coldrush Cooling Du Rag

The HexArmor ColdRush Du Rag Cooling Clothing is a neat solution, which helps to rapidly cool down your head and neck – one of the greatest areas of blood flow in the body. Although it is not a cycling specific product, this kind of cloth has been used by many sports teams in search of marginal recovery gains.To use it, you simply soak it in water; then wear it for up to 1 hour, to significantly aid the cooling process. The Garmatex fabric is designed to wick away sweat and moisture from your brow, head and neck, and provide a notable cooling effect. It is a really simple product, but it works. I was certainly grateful for it to wear in the heat of the Italian Dolomites.Source: Review – HexArmor ColdRush Du Rag Cooling Cloth

Hats off to Fortress Distribution as they support Brain Tumour Research ‘Wear a Hat Day’ at the Health and Safety Event

Fortress Distribution is delighted to be able to support the Brain Tumour Research charity’s annual ‘Wear A Hat day 2016’ which is the premier brain tumour awareness event in the UK, helping to support long-term, life-saving research to move ever closer to a cure.

This year, the fun day aimed at encouraging everyone to wear a hat, falls on 24th March during the Health and Safety Event at Birmingham’s NEC. With the Brain Tumour Research charity selling a number of different pin badges to promote the day, Fortress Distribution spotted a hard hat pin badge that aptly fits in with this key industry health and safety event.

“Supporting charities is a key part of our corporate values, comments Jenny Matthews, Director at Fortress Distribution. We noticed that Brain Tumour Research have a hard hat pin badge for ‘Wear A Hat Day 2016’ and as it coincides with the Health and Safety Event we wanted to look at ways we could get involved.”

We’re stepping into the spotlight with Yuleys overshoes at The Health & Safety Event

 After the successful introduction of Black Mamba Gloves in 2012 we are once again demonstrating our ability to introduce leading-edge PPE brands to the UK. In a few weeks time we will be debuting Yuleys unique and revolutionary re-usable shoe cover at the Health and Safety Event in Birmingham.

Designed to fit conveniently and quickly over safety footwear, the Yuleys slip on / slip off safety footwear protector enables construction workers, tradesmen and delivery drivers to enter clean environments without the need to remove their dirty footwear. And what’s more,  they are also an environmentally friendly and cost conscious alternative to traditional disposable shoe covers as Yuleys can easily be cleaned with warm water for years of use.

The footwear is a seamless one piece shoe cover made of flexible industrial grade SEBS rubber and comes in a variety of sizes to fit the majority of work shoes and boots. Featuring a non slip grip, Yuleys allow users to proceed with their work without removing safety footwear and without the risk of slipping in a paper, plastic, or nylon shoe cover.

Founded in 2012, Fortress Distribution says it is growing rapidly through its partnership with Black Mamba Gloves and Accessories, and is looking forward to introducing additional brands to its safety and work wear portfolio. Alan Matthews, Director at Fortress Distribution, said “We are really excited to be partnering with Yuleys protective footwear to bring this unique product to the UK and Ireland. There is a real gap in the market for the solution that Yuleys provides and we can see a tremendous opportunity for this product.”

Visit Stand F58 at the NEC to see Yuleys in action and to test out the super tough disposable Black Mamba Nitrile Glove with your free sample pair. 10% show discount available to all visitors when placing their first order.

The Black Mamba nitrile glove is tough and durable at over 6.0 mils thick offering a superior fit and better puncture, abrasion, and chemical resistance than disposable vinyl or latex gloves. These ambidextrous gloves have a Grip Rite textured surface offering a secure and tactile grip whilst providing sensitivity for delicate, precise tasks – perfect for finding your way around the inside of an oven and those hard to see places. They are ideal for domestic applications, as well as automotive, general maintenance, manufacturing and with the added benefit that the colour helps to hide dirt, grime and grease to increase overall product lifetime and value. The gloves are available in sizes, small through 2XL – so there’s a pair suitable to fit any hands and they’re a perfect addition to any household for domestic chores.
