MATERIAL PROTECTION

Hi Guys,

Today’s blog post gives you a few tips on how to keep your site materials and finishes protected from any damage.  Below are a few products we recommend you consider using.  In turn the main benefit of this for you, is not spending any more money than you have to by refinishing or replacing on-site damages materials.

Door Frame Protection

door frame pro

These particular frames are designed to clip around existing door frames to protect the surfaces from any impact damage.  Installation and removal of protection frames are quick and easy.  In comparison to other frames out there, these lightweight frames would be the best option as other frames can be more rigid which results in potential material scratching.

Floor Protection

floor prot

We supply both floor protection and carpet films, which both will serve your needs perfectly.  Both products eliminate the need for using dust sheets which as we all know can be a trip hazard.  Both products boast many benefits mainly they are waterproof products, obviously self-adhesive and you require no need for any tape as it is specially designed to low tack adhere to carpets and wood flooring.

Protection Boards

Protection boards are sold per sheet and are black in colour as standard but other colours are available.  These boards are a versatile and cost effective way of offering protection.  They are designed to be easily cut and fitted.  Protection boards are also available in flame retardant format.

Window Protection

window protection

Window protection films are sold per roll.  Protecting windows and glazed facades from any scratches, dirt, paint and plaster drops.

The above are just some of a few of the products we supply to protect site materials or finishes from any damage.   So don’t let your hard work go to waste, any further questions you may have our team are more than happy to help.

Hi Guys,
So today’s blog post is focused on fall arrest kits.

harness2_grande

There are various different styles of safety harness kits but all of them accomplish the same task, which is to catch you if you slip and / or fall off a high surface. Many occupations require workers to wear these harness kits, some of which include construction workers, roofers, crane operators, scaffold workers and many more. However, do not fear as we have you covered, see here fixfactory.co.uk
It is very important before even putting on the harness that you know what to inspect it for; so first things first, hold the harness by the back D-ring, and allow the straps to fall into place. Make sure the harness has clear and separate colours for the shoulder and thigh straps, so as they are easily distinguished. Also take note to inspect the harness webbing for any cuts, burns or damages. Lastly, carefully look for any evidence of corrosion on the metal parts of the harness.

On the harness we supply, see here at fixfactory.co.uk the webbing of the harness is made of polyester. The benefit of this is the harness does not stretch dangerously when subjected to a fall. The reason been, the polyester it is made of has the least elongation properties compared to other materials. Hence, the wearer of the harness does not hold a risk of slipping out of the harness.

For more information on this , please don’t hesitate to give are sales team a call. Harness kits are available to buy from our e-commece site www.fixfactoryco.uk   Buy safety harnesses
