Radians invests in automation to deliver higher levels of customer service and satisfaction

June 30, 2014, Posted in News


Radians, Inc., a leader in the personal protective equipment industry, has made a significant capital investment in warehouse automation at their Memphis headquarters.

Radians' new order fulfillment system, or pick module, from Integrated Solutions will be fully operational by July. Once completed, the automated system will become the central hub of their warehouse operations, expediting the pick and ship process for optimum product flow.

According to Radians’ President, Bill England, “our recent investment in automation is Radians’ largest equipment purchase in the company’s history. The new system will improve the speed and accuracy of order fulfillment, which always leads to higher levels of customer service and satisfaction.”

The automated system uses PathGuide software which provides real time control to get instant information about warehouse material movement and inventory status. This will enhance Radians’ ability to expedite same-day orders more efficiently than ever and will also reduce errors in shortages and overages to one in 5,000.

According to Bobbie Espitia, Radians’ Director of Supply Chain Management, “We are excited how our capital investment in automation will improve order accuracy, lower fulfillment costs, and expedite the order-fulfillment process. All of these capabilities result in making Radians a better supply chain partner to our customers.”

The benefits of automation will not only enhance customer satisfaction, it will also positively affect employee satisfaction and morale because the ergonomic design of the pick module combined with the space optimization will reduce employee fatigue and stress.

Radians® is a Memphis, TN-based manufacturer of quality safety glasses, including their premium Crossfire® line, high visibility clothing, hearing protection, performance gloves, cooling products and footwear. Radians has partnered with highly respected companies including DEWALT®, BLACK & DECKER®, Smith & Wesson®, Bone Collector™, and Remington® to provide high performance personal protection products.

Crossfire ES4 Saves Motorist’s Eye from Danger

May 12, 2014, Posted in News

The Crossfire ES4 Glass by Radians played the part of “hero” recently when the eyewear stopped a flying rock from striking a motorist in the eye. The driver, who was cruising in The Rocky Mountains, had his driver’s side window open when two trucks kicked up a flying rock. The motorist’s eye was unharmed from the projectile because he was wearing the impact resistant Crossfire  ES4. This ANSI Z87.1+ safety glass, which prevented the rock from striking the motorist’s eye, was also instrumental in the driver staying in control of his vehicle, thus preventing a dangerous car accident from also happening.

Radians® launches new high visibility rainwear line

May 05, 2014, Posted in News


Radians, Inc., a manufacturer of quality personal protective equipment, recently launched a new line of RadWear® high visibility rainwear.  With the 2014 Farmer’s Almanac prediction that “Spring will start late and be exceptionally wet for most sections of the country,” Radians’ new rainwear collection is available now to help you weather the storms ahead.

The high visibility rain jackets in the new collection are certified ANSI 107 Class 3 and the pants are Class E. They were purposely designed for tough working environments and a variety of weather conditions and climates, and they feature Reflectivz™weatherproof and high visibility technology. The rain jackets and pants are sold separately.

For those who require lightweight rain jackets and rain pants, the Radians RW10 offers excellent protection for the affordable price. The lightweight jacket features a vented back cape to keep you cool and comfortable, while still protecting you in tough environments.  The elastic waist pants have adjustable cuffs with snaps and all seams are double stitched for extra durability. Both the jacket and pants are made of 150 Denier PU coated, high visibility oxford material that provides excellent protection against the rain.

If you work outdoors in a climate that experiences moderate rain on a regular basis, then you may want to specify Radians RW30 general purpose rainwear.  The RW30 rain jacket and pants are made from 300 Denier PU coated, high visibility oxford material that provides superior rain protection. The jacket has a vented back cape for interior moisture management and a D-Ring pass through for fall protection. The bib pants feature adjustable suspender straps, a side waist zipper expansion, and an upper chest pocket for essential tools.

On the other hand, if your work conditions are rugged and you work in a climate where you are frequently outside in storms and other inclement weather, then the RW32 is your solution for heavy duty waterproof protection. Both the heavy duty rain jacket and rain pants are waterproof rated per ANSI 107, 7.5.3 and rated breathable per ANSI 107, 7.6. Both are made from durable 300 DENIER PU Coated Rip Stop Oxford Polyester material and feature 3M® 8906 2” silver reflective tape for extra protection in low light conditions that frequently accompany bad weather.

 The RW32 jacket has a D-Ring pass through for fall protection and several pockets for essential tools. The RW32 bib rain pants have adjustable, removable suspender straps and feature an inside knee pocket for holding knee pads (sold separately).

Radians launches new branded line of performance gloves

February 24, 2014, Posted in News


Radians®, a leading manufacturer of performance safety gear for the Industrial and Retail sectors, launches eight new gloves under its Radians’ brand. Each glove in the new product line-up was designed with technological and material innovations that provide maximum protection, high dexterity, comfort, and visibility.

Leading the way in the latest glove technologies are Radians new EN Cut Level 3 gloves: the Radians RWG530, RWG531 and the RWG532. All three gloves fit like a second skin and provide protection against puncture, tear, cut, and abrasion. The RWG531 has the added benefit of high visibility whereas the Radians RWG532 is touch screen capable, allowing workers to keep their gloves on when using touch screen machinery, phones or equipment.

Other gloves in the line-up provide superior grip and dexterity, such as the RWG11 and RWG12, with their anti-slip nitrile dotted palms. These foam dipped gloves are lightweight, breathable, comfortable and can easily be worn all day with zero hand fatigue.

Three other gloves in the new line-up, the RWG10, RWG100, and the RWG800 all provide high visibility protection while serving up other safety solutions as well. For example, the RWG10, a knit dip glove, offers durability, comfort and enhanced grip it wet conditions. The RWG100, an all purpose synthetic utility glove, has a padded double layer synthetic palm for increased durability and reflective silver fingertips to take visibility up a notch. If it’s cold outside like it is right now, you’ll be glad to have the RWG800 in your safety arsenal. This cold weather performance glove also has a REFLECTIVZ waterproof plated thermal lined palm and reflective knuckle strap keeping you comfortable, dry and visible in low light conditions. The synthetic palm is stable in price versus the traditional leathers on the market today.

 “All of our gloves,” says Dan Branson, Glove Product Manager for Radians, “provide specialized solutions to combat the hand hazards faced by workers today. We make gloves for the workers who wear them 10 hours a day, never sacrificing dexterity, comfort or protection.”

Radians for Youth and Women

March 18, 2013, Posted in News

Story from http://www.ladiesincamo.com


Posted on March 6, 2013 by huntingmotherearth

I have been using Radians products for more years than I am going to admit to in writing.  Many years ago I was suffering from an inner ear problem, and I couldn’t be around shooting without being in pain. My husband bought me my first set of electronic earmuffs at that time, they were my first Radians.  I was so impressed, I was like a little kid running around telling everyone who would listen how thrilled I was with my hearing protection.  Many of the shooters I was bragging to, had never had a pair of electronic earmuffs, and couldn’t understand how you could hear better, but not blow out your eardrums when shooting, while wearing them.  But, they all went out and bought the same earmuffs I had, after using mine for just a little while!  They became believers!

Now we return to the present, and I am still running around telling everyone how great they are!  I still have my original pair, and they still work great, but I have added to that one over the years.

The Hunter’s Ears model has to be the best all around model I have used.  They feature the dual independently controlled microphones which enhance and amplify sound, while they automatically compress the harmful sudden noise from a muzzle blast.  Like all of the Radians earmuffs, they can be folded very compactly for protection of the unit and ease of storage.  They are comfortable to wear, with lots of adjustment for different sized heads.  I tend to forget I even have them on!

HE4P00CSThe Prowl Ears model is a behind the ear version that still has the amplification and compression features.  These are extremely small and easy to transport and pack.  The package includes 2 units and will work both in the woods or on the job.  Wearing this model, you can easily wear a hat or head band for warmth.

Prowl Ear_PR2601CSMy new favorite pair is the Enhance Ear!  The are a very small design that fits comfortably and securely into your ear.  Like the other electronic hearing protection that Radians offers, these can do the double duty of sound application and harmful sound compression. These do the job of their bigger brothers, while leaving you the freedom of hats, headband and eye glasses without any conflicting. I wore these the entire time I was hog hunting in Alabama recently.  They made hearing the faint hog noises much easier, while of course not doing any damage to my hearing from my shots!  Plus no extra weight to carry around with you!  These will be going to South Africa with me in a couple of months.  I need to watch what I pack because of weight, and these don’t weigh enough to make any difference in my luggage, but they will definitely make a difference when we are sighting in our rifles and hunting!

Enhance Ear_TA2701CSFor my grandchildren, I am loving the new Women and Youth models!  They now offer a Pink Pro-Amp model, which of course is pink.  They feature the dual independent microphones which amplifies your normal conversations while keeping the harmful impulse noises to a safe level. The headband is padded with a moisture wicking material.  These are designed for the smaller heads that we women tend to have.  My granddaughters have been fighting over this pair, so I will probably be adding another into our collection!

Pink Pro-Amp_PAP700CSThere are several combination packs that are offered for Women and Youth.  There is a T-71P/MP22C that pairs the performance shooting glasses with the slim design passive earmuffs.  This combo comes in pink, with the shooting glasses having tasteful accents in pink.  These earmuffs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NNR) of 22.

There is also the True Jr. Combo kit, which has the silver colored True Jr. Earmuuffs designed specifically for the younger shooter.  These are passive, and have a NNR of 21.  This kit also includes the youth model shooting glasses, with 3 interchangeable lens colors.

My grandchildren shoot often with us, so it is important to have eye and hearing protection that not only fits correctly, but also protects their delicate ears and eyes.  These models fit the bill, and also require no batteries!  We used to let them use our electronic versions, and we would have to purchase new batteries absolutely every time we used them.  The kids would inevitably leave the microphones turned on, even after they were done wearing them.  These passive models are perfect for the kids that would forget.

Radians manufactures for several different companies, including Remington.  They have also came out with a complete line of Michael Waddell’s Bone Collector shooting glasses and hearing protection.  Fashionable and functional performance!

I use my hearing protection for every situation.  They go from shooting and hunting to cutting firewood and running other equipment.  The next time you are in the market for a new set of hearing protection, look for the Radians name, you will not be disappointed!  They have a hearing protection for every application and budget!

These products can be purchased at Cabelas, Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Sears, Amazon and many other retailers.  They range in price from $15.99 for the Low Set Ear Muffs to around $100 for the Hunter’s Ear model.  And the best part…They are Made in the USA!!
