Radians is Packing the Pink To Support the Growing Number of Female Shooters and Hunters

November 26, 2012, Posted in News

PRESS RELEASE

 

 

MEMPHIS, TN—November 20, 2012—A recent survey by the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) reports amazing growth in female participation in hunting and shooting.  According to the NSGA survey, “72 percent more women are hunting with firearms today than just five years ago.” Hunting with a bow and arrow is up 176 percent (thank you Hunger Games!) and shooting with a handgun is up 33 percent.

The survey reports that “3 million women now hunt and over 5 million women enjoy shooting.” To support the growing number of female shooters and hunters, Radians is developing a pink safety line for women that includes eye, ear, and hand protection. Some of the products in the women’s line include:

  • X-TREME™ Anti-Fog Women’s Shooting Glass  (MSRP $15.49)
  • Pink custom molded ear plugs (MSRP $14.99)
  • Lowset™  pink passive earmuffs (MSRP $19.99)
  • Pink Pro-Amp™ electronic earmuffs (MSRP $99.99)
  • Pink Shooter’s kit (shooting glass and earmuff combo (MSRP $24.99)
  • Pink Shooting Gloves (available 2013--MSRP $12.99)


When designing the products for women, Radians considers the differences in female anatomy. For example, their eyewear frames for women are 10% smaller than those made for men, providing the perfect size for women. Although the eyewear styles are more feminine, they are fully functional when it comes to meeting and exceeding ANSI Z87.1+ Standards for safety.

Radians announces new made-in-the-USA foam ear plugs

October 02, 2012, Posted in News

www.ishn.com

Although hearing protection regulations have been in place for decades, Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is still a major occupational illness. Radians' new Made in the USA foam ear plugs (Resistor, Deflector, and Deviator) provide an effective, single-use solution to combat NIHL. Because they are manufactured in America, they are also the patriotic solution to hearing protection.

Tested in accordance with ANSI S3.19-1974 standards, Radians disposable foam ear plugs feature soft, slow-recovery foam for extreme comfort and outstanding noise reduction (NRR 32 and NRR33). They are easy to roll down and insert, and then they expand slowly for a low-pressure fit in virtually any size ear canal.

They are available corded and uncorded in a tapered bullet or bell shape and are conveniently packaged in individual polybags to keep each pair clean. Bulk and case quantities are available allowing organizations to affordably address hearing protection and hygiene issues.

 “As more Americans practice patriotic spending to help jumpstart our sluggish economy, Radians Made in the USA foam plugs not only fulfill the need for quality hearing protection; but they also satisfy the need to buy American,” said Bill England, President of Radians. “There is a lot of value in being able to choose American made products these days, and Radians is on a mission to manufacture a significant amount of high quality personal protective products with a competitive value.”

Radians is a Memphis, TN-based manufacturer of quality safety glasses, hearing protection, performance gloves, high visibility clothing and footwear products. Radians has partnered with highly respected companies including DEWALT, Black & Decker, and Remington to provide high performance personal protection products. The company has additional facilities in Reno, Nevada; Dallas, Texas; Thomasville, NC, and Belmont, Michigan.

Radians Line of Mossy Oak® Safety Products Provide Camouflage & Protection

June 11, 2012, Posted in News

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


MEMPHIS, TN
– If a sponsor at The Hunger Games had sent a Radians® Hunter’s Ears™ electronic camouflage earmuff to Katniss Everdeen, she may have avoided partial deafness after the mine explosion while still being able to hear any tributes sneaking up on her.  In light of the recent fanfare associated with The Hunger Games, Radians® is proud to offer an extensive line of camouflage Mossy Oak® safety products for hunting that provides both concealment and protection for the outdoor enthusiast.

Respectful of fashion trends and passionate about safety equipment, Radians Mossy Oak-licensed patterns provide camouflage style and high-tech features to protect hearing and vision.

High-Tech Hearing Protection

By combining electronic amplification and automatic compression technology, Radians Hunter’s Ears™ have revolutionized hearing protection for the sports enthusiast. The main benefit of an electronic earmuff, such as Radians Hunter’s Ears™, is the enhancement of outdoor sounds while providing concealment, warmth, comfort, and ear protection from muzzle blast sounds.
The electronic sound amplification earmuff with 2 independent high frequency directional microphones enhances the surrounding sounds, thereby providing an environment where users can hear range commands and game, as well as their hunting partners. The compression technology automatically compresses harmful impulse noise to a safer range below 85dB without clipping or cutting. The camouflage Mossy Oak pattern offers concealment, something else that is very important as witnessed in The Hunger Games.

A Mossy Oak-patterned earmuff called the Low Set Camo is available from the Radians passive hearing collection. Its adjustable CoolMax® headband offers a comfortable, tight fit, which is important in blocking out harmful noise in passive hearing protection.

Vision Protection

Radians also has Mossy Oak camouflage patterns available in its arsenal of vision protection.  A variety of formats are available:

Youth

Safety, including hearing and eye protection, is an important concept to teach our youth, especially when it comes to the world of hunting and shooting. Radians designed the Journey Jr.™ in Mossy Oak® Break-Up® camo shooting glasses specifically for younger shooting and hunting enthusiasts.

Specialty Eyewear

Radians Mossy Oak Polarized Cobalt safety glasses provide a quality polarized lens. This specialty lens eliminates reflective glare that directly hits the lens and also a portion that hits at other angles.  Eliminating reflective glare reduces eyestrain, allowing a crisp view of the surroundings in richer colors. For those around water, it eliminates reflection and allows viewing below the water’s surface.

Hunter’s Kit™

The Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Hunter’s Kit by Radians provides the combination of eyeware and hearing protection in one convenient kit. The Journey™ shooting glass with a full wraparound frame, 4-position telescoping temple, is available with a Cease Fire™ earplug or a pair of tan Custom Molded Earplugs.

Mossy Oak® Break-Up® patterns are available through a full line of Radians® Electronic and Passive Products.  For more information, contact a sales representative at 1.877.723.4267 or visit www.Radians.com.

Radians Makes Its First Appearance at the Mexican Safety Expo

May 22, 2012, Posted in News

Mexican Safety Expo, Mexico City at the Banamex Center




Radians recently exhibited at the annual Mexican Safety Expo in Mexico City at the Banamex Center. Radians was one of the newest exhibitors at this international show exhibiting along side other safety companies, including  3M, Vallen, Encon, MSA, Honeywell, PIP, and MCR Safety.

Sponsored by the Latin America Security Association, “the show is really three expos in one combining security, safety, and fire all under one roof,” said Marcela Hill, graphic designer for Radians Latin Marketing/Industrial division.  Hill attended the show with Luis Soto, Radians Latin America Sales Director.

According to Occupational Health & Safety, the show attracted close to 14,000 security and safety professionals, allowing Hill and Soto to collect nearly 400 sales leads.
Soto said the show was very strategic from a marketing perspective because it showed our customers and competitors, “the serious arrival and participation of Radians in the Mexican safety market.”

“The safety market in Mexico is still growing and is heavily influenced by the push from USA and European companies for PPE in the automotive, oil & gas, and mining industries, said Soto. “Mexican public safety markets are increasingly specifying American National Standard Institute (ANSI) standards for the products they buy, which gives Radians an excellent opportunity for growth particularly in our growing RadWear reflective wear business.”

What lines were the hot pick at the Radians exhibit? Hill said our DeWALT line and our RadWear Hi-Viz line attracted a lot of attention, so much so that our competitors were a little surprised by our presence at the show.”

Hill and Soto were able to visit with existing customers, such as Home Depot, CFE, and Lear and began establishing new relationships with the Mexico City International Airport, Ford, Magid de Mexico, and VW.
