3 Hard Hat Wearing Tips

1

  1. Choose High Number of Suspensions: A hard hat’s internal suspensions cushion the impact when hits occur. Choose a model with a high number of suspensions for more cushion incase of a fall or other collision.
  2. Always Wear on Worksite: Even if no work is currently happening on your worksite, never be without your hard hat, as there is always risk of falling objects.
  3. Color Coding: A great way to distinguish your hard hat from the rest is through color-coding.

Are you looking for quality hard hats to wear on your construction site? Tech Products Inc. offers great hard hats, at unbeatable prices, to keep you safe on the job.

Preventative Worksite Measures:

2

You must take certain preventative measures to create a safe environment for both the employees of your worksite and the public who may walk past the worksite unprotected.

The most important thing you can do to protect your workers is provide them with safety gear and the proper safety instructions.

To protect regular people passing by you must put up signs warning them of the industrial worksite.

These signs have to be clearly posted around the work area, and it’s wise to purchase strong signs that can handle the wear tear of a worksite environment.

Why Use a Bird Flight Diverter?

4

Birds can injure themselves easily on telephone wires. These injuries typically result from birds’ inabilities to distinguish the thin wires lying in their flight paths. Installing flight diverters, attached directly onto telephone wires, extends the thickness of the wire, making it easier for birds to spot and, thus, avoid.

Furthermore, bird droppings easily accumulate when birds perch on telephone wires. To reduce such litter on residential and business properties, try installing bird flight diverters. These flight diverters fool birds into flying higher than normal, so they do not perch onto said wires and litter nearby grounds with droppings.

Are you interested in installing bird diverters? Tech Products Inc. offers the bird diverters you need to protect birds, and your grounds, from telephone line mishaps.

  2. Keep Non-Workers Out: Only authorized personnel should visit construction sites. Marking site entrances clearly is the best method for keeping unauthorized individuals out.
  3. Protect from Physical Dangers: Construction sites are constantly changing every day. All these moving parts can mean accidental falling items or hazardous shifting floors. Marking dangerous areas with signs is a great way to keep construction workers and site visitors aware of lurking dangers.

3 Reasons to Use Reflective Material on Signs

2

  1. Safety: A sign’s purpose is to communicate important information for maintained safety. However, that purpose falls to the wayside if sign visibility is compromised. Reflective signs, easily visible with headlight illumination, sustain visibility levels, for guaranteed safety.
  2. No Electricity Needed: While non-reflective signs require electrical illumination for nighttime visibility, signs constructed from reflective material can be illuminated easily by oncoming headlights, and therefore do not require added electricity.
  3. Save Money: Between increased installation costs and continuous energy flow, electrically lit signs can be expensive. Installing reflective signs thus cuts down on added energy costs to save money.

Are you interested in investing in a reflective sign? Tech Products Inc. makes high quality reflective signs for long lasting visibility no matter the time of day.

Indestructible Worksite Signs:

1

An industrial or construction worksite requires signs that can stay strong in the face of potential heavy damage.

It is not unlikely that an accident will occur on your worksite that could easily destroy a sign and the cost of replacing these signs can add up over time.

As well a sign can simply get lightly damaged enough until it is unreadable. With enough wear and tear people passing by may be in danger because they couldn’t properly read the sign.

Pole Tags for Con Edison

Tech Products, Inc. has been working with utilities since 1948 to find better ways to mark distribution poles so it can be easily identified in all weather conditions. Our Everlast™ 1” pole tags are currently being used by Con Edison to mark all of their above ground distribution poles in the four boroughs of New York City. Manhattan, the most famous borough uses our Everlast™ cable tags for their underground distribution system. New York has a mixture of environmental factors that make many of today’s pole tags deteriorate rapidly. They decided on Everlast™ because the tags have been proven to last in some of the world’s harshest environments including, Tucson Electric’s desert conditions, The Alaskan Pipeline’s tundra and recently American Samoa’s mixture of high humidity and strong UV radiation.

 

@ConEdison ’s above ground distribution system gets battered by ice and snow in the winter, heat and humidity in the summer and the occasional nor’easter, blizzard or hurricane. In all these conditions, the noble lineman has to brave the elements to get the cities lights back. The tags that identify the poles have to be easy to read to speed response time and save the lineman from pointless trips out of a bucket truck to find important assets.

 

The typical environmental factors that destroy pole markers and substation signs are UV radiation, salt spray, water, cold/hot cycles and vandalism. New York has all of the conditions that make a typical pole tag not last longer than 10 years before becoming ineffective. This includes year round salt water spray from its surrounding bays, rivers and ocean. It has an average amount of UV radiation for the northeast that fades and deteriorates inks and paints. Graffiti vandalism and aluminum scrap stealing.  All these conditions make it very important that the identification system is of the highest quality and been field tested for many years. Everlast™ pole tags have proven to be readable in the worst environments for over 40 years. Using a unique two-step injection molded process; Everlast™ doesn’t have any inks or paints. Our process uses only a UV stable polyolefin through out so UV radiation doesn’t fade the characters keeping a very strong contrast from the characters to the background. It can easily be cleaned with graffiti solvent in the field without destroying the integrity of the pole tag. Salt spray, acid rain even mosquito pesticides don’t affect the Everlast™ pole tag because the polyolefin used to make our tag is chemical inert.

 

Our tags are great in many other conditions including, very cold environments. It is scratch proof because the copy is molded throughout the tag; this makes it great for high wind areas that carry dust, dirt or ice. This can make the tags great for a transmission system like we do for ITC in Michigan or EPCOR in Alberta. The tags also handle very fast temperature changes as in the Arizona desert. Tucson Electric uses our 3” tall characters to mark their switches in substations and the 10” x 14” Substation signs all made in the Everlast™ style. These tags are subjected to 40 – 60 degree temperature changes within a day plus very strong UV radiation. It is the perfect application for a long lasting product like Everlast™.

 

After many years of manufacturing different products to be used on utility poles, transmission towers and substations, @TechProductsInc is very happy to have made a truly great product that fits the utility industries needs perfectly. See us at http://www.TechProducts.com
