Safety Eyewear Orange Crush Goggles Channel Water Away

When rain or sweat is pouring down, don’t live with it, channel it with Brass Knuckle Orange Crush eye protection. Specialized channels along the brow line move water and sweat away from the eyes, while the rubber gasket seals the glasses snugly against the face. When members of your team are working out in the elements or working up a sweat, there’s no need to stop what they’re doing and wipe off. Their eye protection stays on their faces, where it belongs. Plus, the soft rubber gasket is removable, allowing for quick conversion to standard protective eyewear.

Compliant Labels, Wire Markers and more Durable, Custom

K Sun

Safety products: K-Sun Corporation’s Epson LABELWORKS PX LW-PX700 industrial label maker is for creating durable, custom and compliant labels, wire markers and more up to 1 in. wide. Exclusive features of the LW-PX700 save time, effort and money by creating a lower total cost of ownership:

  • Auto tape rewind reduces lead margins to 4 mm by retracting material into the cartridge before the first label prints, which translates to more cost savings per print and less waste.
  • The mixed-length hot key lets users create multiple uniform and variable-length labels on the same strip with a half-cut between each label for easy removal and application, eliminating multiple lead margins to significantly save tape.
  • The pick-and-print function conveniently prints, cuts and holds a single label until it is removed. The function resumes for the next label in the series, saving time by eliminating the need to continuously type and print labels.
  • Lifetime warranty is an assurance of Epson LABELWORKS PX’s performance.

The rugged LW-PX700 label printer, engineered to meet MIL-STD 810 “drop” test specifications for the toughest environments, can be used to organize tool cribs, identify storage bins, label inventory racks, make safety labels, mark cables and wires, tag assets and create nine resident barcodes or 15 using Label Editor Professional software plus import images and label files to print on the go.

Trapped Key Interlocks Protect Workers at HV Substations

KIRK interlocking products provide safe access to switchgear within HV substations. Trapped key access interlocks and key exchange units restrict physical entry and prevent dangerous operating conditions, ensuring that personnel operate equipment according to the correct sequence of operation.


Trapped key interlocks prevent injury to personnel, protect equipment from damage, and assure continuity of electrical supply by initially restricting any unauthorized access. This is particularly important for HV substations located in remote, unmanned sites. Secondly, they ensure that all authorized access is done in a safe manner, requiring that part of a system is isolated and correctly earthed before maintenance can be carried out on that section.

A well-designed interlocking scheme also ensures the system is operated correctly. This can prevent a number of dangerous scenarios such as switching two incoming feeds onto a common bus bar, the paralleling of two energy sources, or disconnecting breakers under load.

Protective Clothing Thermal Base Layers Improve Warmth, Comfort

Ergodyne has redesigned two products in its N-Ferno Line: the 6435 Thermal Base Layer Long Sleeve and the 6480 Thermal Base Layer Bottoms. These thermal products were made with enhanced fabrics and features to help workers get the job done no matter what the working weather conditions may be.


The comfort stretch fabric on the base layers has a soft brushed interior that locks in warmth. Flat lock seams and a smooth jersey exterior allow workers to layer clothing and bundle up without fear of bunching up. Strategically-placed venting in the armpits and groin assists with maintaining an optimal core body temperature.

A moisture-wicking treatment sweeps sweat away from the skin to keep workers drier for longer. If they happen to bead up in the workplace or on a weekend long run, an anti-microbial treatment provides advanced odor control.
