The introduction and launch of DEWALT high visibility and reflective gear affords Radians the opportunity to help to protect workers with a brand name they know and trust. The new DEWALT line includes Class 2 FR Vests, sporty performance T-shirts, and Class 2 Vests that satisfy a variety of work applications and operating budgets.
According to John Cunningham, Vice President - CDIY Business Development for Stanley Black & Decker, “We are excited about the launch of DEWALT High Visibility Gear and the extension of our range of world class safety products. As with all of our DEWALT Products, this range represents our commitment to Quality, Innovation and satisfying our end users with functional designs.”
“Radians is also excited about this new category for the DEWALT brand,” said Art Kunkle, VP of Product Development for Radians. “Nearly everywhere that something is being built, repaired, or maintained you will find the familiar yellow and black of DEWALT Power Tools and Accessories,” stated Kunkle. At almost all jobsites, workers are required to wear rated high visibility and reflective apparel to help reduce accidents and improve safety. Now workers and safety professionals can spec a rated ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 DEWALT Class 2 Vest or performance shirt for their safety program.
The new DEWALT Personal Protective line is designed with features that provide comfort, convenience, and durability, including segmented reflective tape, moisture wicking polyester mesh, pockets, mic tabs, and durable stitch reinforcement at major stress points. The line includes economy, standard and heavy duty surveyor vests to provide a variety of solutions for workplace safety programs.
“The high visibility PPE category is already growing at a significant pace and now with the new DEWALT line of high visibility gear, we expect this PPE category to gain even greater momentum,” said Bill England, President of Radians.
The new DEWALT line of high visibility gear is available through Radians’ authorized distributors. For more information, please visit www.Radians.com or call 1-877-RADIANS.
