Adequate lighting is essential for a safe work environment, so the maker has introduced two new jobsite work lights. The 84-watt Portable Tripod Fluorescent Work Light stands 5 feet 4 inches tall and offers 360-degree illumination. The lamp can light areas up to 17 feet by 24 feet. After work, the legs fold in for compact and easy transport. The super-bright 500-watt Portable Halogen Work Light features a heavy-duty cast aluminum housing, and embossed aluminum reflector that intensifies light output. A tempered glass lens and metal grille cage and cradle guard protect the bulb. A stay-cool cushioned grip handle ensures safe handling for users even when the light is on.
Available at The Home Depot.
Crawler Products.
The OSHA-compliant Crawler scaffold-moving device attaches to any baker-style or fold-up scaffolding, including the maker's own scaffolds, and is powered by the user's cordless drill. Providing forward and reverse movement, and a zero-degree turning radius, the Crawler features one-handed steering and throttle control, and adjusts to various platform heights. An auto brake stops the scaffold when the throttle is released. The Crawler eliminates extra climbing required to move manual scaffolds, letting users get more work done safely and efficiently, the maker says.
North Safety.
The SwingStrap SuperEight cap from the maker's Fibre-Metal brand offers convenience when mounting face or welding protection onto your hard hat. Simply angle the SwingStrap forward to wear rear-facing, and back again for the forward-peak position. SwingStrap eliminates downtime caused by removing, reversing, and then reinstalling the whole suspension.
The maker has collaborated with tool manufacturer DeWalt to create the DeWalt Concealer goggle for use during construction, woodworking, sanding, and machinery operation. The goggles meet ANSI Z87.1+ standards and offer 99.9% UVA/UVB protection, the maker says. Impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses are available in clear or smoke color. A clip attachment allows for easy lens replacement; a built-in ventilation channel fights fog. The dual-molded rubber edge and the adjustable cloth elastic head strap work together to create a comfortable seal.
