TraffiGlove Explained

TraffiGlove invented the original traffic light system for hand protection which is proven to reduce accidents. With so many products, how do you know which would suit the job?

The Red cut is a lower level of protection and are ideal for general handling, warehouse and low risk construction jobs. The red colour is to serve as a warning that that the wearer will need to change to a higher cut level when moving to a different task.

The Amber cut offers a medium level of protection and is ideal for second fix construction, M&E trades, steel fixing and handling objects with sharp objects.

The Green cut offers the highest level of protection and are ideal for applying cladding, metal work and handling glass or sheet metal.

The Star Of Chipboard Screws

 

Chipboard screws are specifically designed for screwing into engineered wood– self-tapping with a thin core diameter and coarse threads. We supply the Rapierstar StarTurn™ screw – the best multi-purpose chipboard screw – which offers up to 50% quicker drive in time with exceptional holding power.

The StarTurn brand was developed in response to the demands of the timber construction industry, where a faster, more reliable and safer fastening into both timber and engineered wood materials was required. Starting is virtually instant, as the thread begins at the very tip of the screw and cuts a receiving thread into the wood, with the patented Starform cutting portion of the thread reducing drive-torque during screw insertion.

Etag Fixings Star Turn Screws

The StarTurn screws deeper recess and innovative double countersunk head greatly improves screwdriver seating and frictional grip, making it safe. The unique plating and lubricant coating process ensure long life and ease of insertion and includes Zinc and Yellow finishes. The unique patented Starform cutting thread lowers drive-torque and reduces splitting when screws are inserted close to the end or edge of the wood. The sharp point allows for easier penetration and into hardwood, chipboard, MDF, OSB, plastics and thin sheet metal.

Darkness Into Light Walk 2018

On Saturday 12th May, eight members of Etag Fixings Ireland and UK gathered at 4.15am in Cricklewood (London), Phoenix Park (Dublin), Navan and Fairyhouse Racecourse (Co. Meath) to take part in the Darkness Into Light walk for Pieta House.

Pieta House provide lifesaving support to those living in the shadows and support other organisations doing similar work all around the world. Darkness Into Light is a global movement to raise awareness and funds for the prevention of suicide and self-harm.

Gathering with the crowds in the darkness, there was a buzz of excitement as people got ready to walk or run into the light. As we walked around the 5k course in each location, we were able to see the sun slowly rise and hear the birds sing, giving everyone a feeling of hopefulness and peace. It was an amazing experience for all and one that we hope to continue next year.

Damien, Jana, Shirley, Kyle, Bethany, Jonny, Kelly and Laura all signed up for the walk and pledged to raise funds for Pieta House. Altogether, Team Etag raised €2,134.78 / £1,937. Take a look at our video with some images here https://youtu.be/yUTK76BY21A

A huge thank you to all our sponsors!!

And, well done to Team Etag!!

 

Access Panels

At Etag Fixings we have a wide range of bespoke access panels for all your requirements. We specialize in frame and door construction, frame and door finish options, RAL based colour choice, textured finishes, hinge options, large span and double door panels. All our access panels are fire rated, which means our panels have to go through a fire test, involving two aspects, integrity and insulation. The Integrity Fire Rating, ensures that the access panel will prevent a spread of fire from reaching the other side for a period of time. The Insulation Fire Rating prevents the temperature from rising to a level that can cause combustion on the opposite side of the panel for a period of time.

We have developed solutions for access to services in many different fields including hospital and healthcare facilities, military and secure area facilities, education, skyscraper construction, leisure, hotels and hospitality and many more.  Our priority at Etag is to make the customers job as easy as possible, so specification is essential. This makes for easy installation into walls and we take pride in making sure our bespoke access panels blend into any building’s design.
