Summer Essentials for Tradespeople 2020
Jul 09, 2020
Summer is now in full swing. With the ease of lockdown during the Covid-19 crisis and introduction of new Site Operating Procedures, many tradespeople are now returning to work and building sites across the UK.
We want to highlight some of our must-have Summer products that could be considered essential for all tradespeople during the warmer season in 2020. Temperatures are set to soar which means sun safety and your comfort whilst working are of paramount importance. Whether you are working on a building site or on a private domestic project, our collection of Summer products will help you get the job done whilst also maintaining a feeling of safety and well being.
Sun Safety When Working Outdoors
We are all aware of the dangers of too much sun, no matter how nice it seems at the time. According to NHS England, you can triple your risk of melanoma skin cancer by getting a sunburn just once every 2 years and you are more at risk of getting skin damage from increased UV exposure during the months of March to October.
Therefore, we highly recommend protecting your skin with our DEB Sun Cream which we sell in 1-litre bottles which can be easily dispensed on site. Why not also get yourself a new pair of Tinted Wrap-around glasses which double up as safety glasses to prevent the bright sun from damaging your eyes and help you see comfortably whilst working outside.
Comfortable Clothing for Tradespeople at Work
For those that are looking for something more comfortable to wear at work on the warmer days, and where you are able to, we recommend high-quality shorts and t-shirts from the Scruffs range.
The Scruffs Shorts come in graphite grey or black and have handy pockets for you to keep your tools. The Scruffs t-shirts come in graphite grey or navy blue and all Scruffs clothing is designed with comfort, flexibility and quality in mind.
Personal Protective Equipment
We provide a wide range of personal protective equipment to building sites and other tradespeople including gloves, high visibility clothing, protective headgear and masks. You can speak to one of our experts, knowledgeable account managers to place your order over the phone today for free next day delivery on all orders when you spend £75 or more.
Perfect Patio Products
If you are working on a home improvement project this Summer, whether it is for yourself or for your customer, these patio essentials may be just the thing you need. We recommend the Sika FastFix Paving Joint Compound which comes in easy to carry (with handle) 15kg containers.
We also provide some ergonomic, high quality pointing trowels to help you complete your building and paving tasks with ease. You may also wish to add a soft broom or soft hand-held brush to your order to help you complete the job, especially if your old one is looking like it has seen better days.
