Gateway Safety Scorpion MAG and StarLite MAG eyewear with 3.0 diopter magnification lens
Gateway Safety now offers an even stronger magnification lens option for workers needing bifocal vision correction AND eye protection on the job. To meet the needs of a growing aging workforce, Gateway Safety has added a clear 3.0 diopter lens option to its two bifocal eye protection styles—Scorpion MAG and StarLite MAG. Both are now available in five diopter strengths: 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0.
Bifocal safety eyewear allows workers needing extra magnification to clearly read instrumentation and documents, work with small parts, or perform other close-at-hand tasks—all without having to switch between regular safety glasses and reading glasses, a dangerous practice that can result in errors and eye injuries.
Scorpion MAG bifocal safety eyewear comes loaded with features that provide a personalized fit and all-day comfort. Adjustable-length ratcheting temples and a soft "fingertip" nosepiece make Scorpion MAG fit comfortably without slipping. The dual lens design has a venting system that helps minimize fogging. Meets or exceeds the ANSI Z87.2+ standard.
StarLite MAG is a bifocal version of the highly popular original StarLite safety glasses. In demand for its legendary styling, comfort features, and all-around impact protection, StarLite MAG is Gateway Safety's most cost-effective bifocal eye protection. Meets or exceeds the ANSI Z87.2+ standard.
Superior Cut Resistant Dyneema Gloves and Sleeves
Protective gloves and sleeves made with Dyneema by DSM offer a unique combination of serious cut protection and lightweight comfort…so lightweight, in fact, you’ll forget you’re wearing them! Gloves that incorporate DYNEEMA conduct heat and moisture dispersion better than other materials, and resist moisture, UV light and chemicals. Unaffected by water or detergents, they can be washed and re-used without any loss of cut resistance.
Hot, sweaty, itchy hands have always been a problem in the manufacturing environment. But our fiber is an excellent conductor of heat and adapts to the temperature of the skin while rapidly transporting the heat and moisture from the inside of the glove to the outside of the glove.
Gloves made with Dyneema are extremely flexible, which increases the dexterity of the gloves. This in turn improves the ability to work while wearing gloves. The result? Employees don't remove the gloves and thus don't put their hands at risk of injury.

Toshiba IP66-rated IK-WB80A Security Camera
Brings Advantages of IP Video Surveillance to Outdoor Applications
All In One, IP66-rated IK-WB80A Eliminates Need for Protective Housing
IP network cameras have transformed video surveillance, empowering security professionals to remotely monitor their systems over the Internet. Yet because the internal electronics of an IP camera are far more sensitive than those in traditional analog models, it's proven to be a challenge to safely mount IP cameras outdoors without an expensive protective housing.
Toshiba hopes to change this with the introduction of its new IK-WB80A, a highly ruggedized IP camera built to withstand extreme heat and cold, snow, sleet and rain, even vandalism - all without the purchase of an enclosure. The camera's metallic housing meets the demanding IP66 international standard, meaning that the IK-WB80A can be used with confidence outside in any type of weather. Plus, the imposing Toshiba housing conveys the presence of the highest level of video security available to would-be thieves or vandals.
Toshiba engineered the IK-WB80A with high-quality video surveillance in mind. This is why the camera features a two-megapixel CMOS imaging sensor and a Vari-focal lens with 3x optical/4x digital zoom. The resulting 1600 x 1200 resolution captures large outdoor spaces, such as a parking lot or office entrance way, to give users a single large image rather than juggle multiple video streams from several lower resolution IP cameras.
For superior night-time viewing the camera features IR illuminators that are effective up to 75 feet in complete darkness, along with a true day/night IR cut filter. Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity lets the camera be powered using the same Ethernet cable as the data, simplifying outdoor installations and giving more options for camera mounting.
Other features of the IK-WB80A are:
Dual MPEG4/MJPEG video streaming for simultaneous viewing and recording Built-in slot for SD and SDHC memory cards to record "at camera" Tamper and motion detection with email alerts Two-way audio for on-site communications Privacy masking.

"Representing more than two decades of research and design, the newest Delta harness will surely establish its place as an industry standard for fall protection."
For increased worker safety, the improved Delta harness offers DBI-SALA's I-Safe identification tag and rip-stitch impact indicator that shows if the harness has been compromised in a fall. This provides an efficient way for users to inspect, store and track the harness's integrity around the jobsite. Additionally, the dorsal D-ring patented spring-loaded design automatically stands up to ensure fast, easy and safe connections to fall arrest systems.

Vent-A-Garage VG200 air system from Alert Stamping
Alert’s new Vent-A-Garage VG200 is a two car garage ventilation system which exchanges Hot, Volatile Fume or Odorous air with fresh air.

Gateway Serpent Ventilated Safety Helmets
Prevents Heat Buildup with CoolSense Air Flow System
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, workers in hot environments face significant danger of heat stress. Wearing semi- or non-permeable personal protective equipment can add to the risk of a worker overheating or becoming fatigued, which can lead to more accidents on the job.
Gateway Safety's Serpent Ventilated Safety Helmet can help minimize heat buildup under the shell of the helmet, while offering optimal head injury protection. Its CoolSense™ airflow system, along with six vents along the peak of the helmet, promotes heat release and keeps workers cool. A comfortable, cushioned brow pad absorbs moisture and perspiration, promoting wearability and worker compliance.
Serpent is superbly comfortable and extremely lightweight at just 13.1 ounces, with a sleek, snakehead shell style that appeals to workers. A six-point nylon suspension and sturdy yet lightweight high-density polyethylene material provide both comfort and exceptional impact absorption. Serpent is available with a pin-lock or ratchet suspension, which adjusts to fit 6-5/8 to 8-¼ head sizes. A rain trough also diverts water from workers' faces.
The Serpent safety helmet complies with the ANSI Z89.1 Standard for Type I, Class C helmets.

DBI-SALA Cynch-Lok fall-restricting pole strap
Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment, introduces the Cynch-Lok fall restriction device from its premium DBI-SALA line. The Cynch-Lok fall restricting pole strap is the most user-friendly device of its kind, offering effortless adjustments and a unique design that will "cynch" around a pole to limit fall distances when used correctly.
With an easy-to-use, lightweight yet durable design, the Cynch-Lok pole strap was engineered to meet the demands of linemen everywhere. Its exterior strap offers simple slide-into-place adjustment to fit the pole and to allow climbers to adjust to the pole diameter while climbing, while the interior lanyard provides a rope adjustor for climbers to quickly and easily position themselves on the pole. This strap interchangeability maximizes versatility and longevity by eliminating the need for multiple devices.
Ergonomic strap ends give the user a comfortable gripping location away from pinch hazards and allow for standard hitch-hiking motion without aggressively manipulating the strap up and down. Cynch-Lok also features an abrasion-resistant sleeve to help prolong product life. The sleeve is mobile, permitting adjustment on the pole if needed and allowing fast, easy access to inspect the interior rope underneath.
Depending on what size and type of pole the user is climbing, the exterior portion of the Cynch-Lok strap can be exchanged for different lengths, offering complete field versatility. Both distribution and transmission sized models are available, and separate exterior straps are offered as options for linemen who climb poles of various diameters. Further, these straps can also act as replacement pieces in the event the unit is damaged in the field. This lowers the cost of ownership, as the entire system would not need to be replaced.
Cynch-Lok also features a specially designed cleat and carabineer that will restrict a fall during a cut-out by gripping the pole when the strap itself "cynches." Additionally, DBI-SALA's I-Safe identification tags and cover keep labels protected and legible, while the wear-indicating strap and rope utilize an indicating core to signal whether the device needs to be replaced for complete safety. The Cynch-Lok fall restricting pole strap is approved to meet the stringent Canadian CSA Z259.14 standard for type A straps and its gated connectors are ANSI Z359 approved.

DBI-SALA Sealed-Blok Self-Retracting Lifeline
Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment, introduces the new DBI-SALA 50-Foot Sealed-Blok Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL). Industry-first features new to the 50-Foot Sealed-Blok SRL include the optional RSQ dual-mode rescue capability, FAST-Line field replaceable lifeline, 420-pound weight capacity and IP68 certification. In addition, units are available with an integrated retrieval winch.
The 50-Foot Sealed-Blok SRL is the first sealed self-retracting lifeline to achieve IP68 certification. This code, as defined by international standard IEC 60529, describes the product's ability to seal out solids and liquids such as dirt, dust and water. In addition to providing the highest level of ingress protection available on the market, the Sealed-Blok SRL also offers the highest weight capacity of any SRL on the market at 420 pounds.
A patented industry first, the exclusive RSQ rescue capability allows the user to choose (prior to use) between automatic rescue mode and fall arrest mode. If a fall occurs while the device is in automatic rescue mode, the SRL will arrest the fall and then automatically lower the worker safely to the ground or next level. If a fall occurs while the device is in fall arrest mode, the SRL will arrest the fall and then allow for an assisted rescue to take place. This two-in-one operation offers work site versatility and optimization for each fall hazard. It can also lower the cost of a user's fall protection program because separate rescue equipment may not be needed.
The FAST-Line field replaceable lifeline provides trained end-users the option of replacing the lifeline in the field rather than sending it to an authorized service center, reducing equipment downtime and lowering the cost of ownership. The unique lifeline design provides simple verification of proper assembly in that the SRL will not operate if the cable is installed incorrectly.
The Sealed-Blok SRL is the only sealed self-retracting lifeline available with a retrieval winch for raising and lowering personnel or materials. The SRL can be quickly converted to and from retrieval mode for fast and efficient operation.

HeatTrak Outdoor Safety Treads
Heated Outdoor Safety Treads named Best New Product at 2010 National Hardware Show.
HeatTrak, manufacturer of heated outdoor safety mats for industrial and residential use, took first-place for best new product in the annual Homewares Show Awards at the National Hardware Show held in Las Vegas this month.
The company's Heated Outdoor Safety Treads won the Gold Award, the top honor in the Homewares category. HeatTrak was a first-time exhibitor this year.
The Homewares Show Awards were judged by representatives from major industry retailers including Ace Hardware, Amazon, Home Shopping Network, and Organize.com. The entries were evaluated based on aesthetics, uniqueness, usefulness, packaging, and overall value.
"By choosing HeatTrak for this prestigious award, industry leaders are saluting our products," said Hillel Glazer, president of HeatTrak, LLC, and inventor of HeatTrak® mats. "It is an honor to be recognized in this way. The award represents an important milestone in our company's growth."
In addition to winning the award, HeatTrak introduced one of its newest products, the Heated Outdoor Walkway Mat, at this year's show. Like the Heated Outdoor Safety Treads, which melt snow and ice on stairs, this new product is an electrically heated mat designed to keep residential walkways clear.
Both products are made of durable material and lie on top of existing surfaces to melt snow at a rate of two inches per hour. As with all HeatTrak products, the Heated Outdoor Walkway Mat and Heated Outdoor Safety Treads are designed to be left outside for the entire winter season.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of unintentional death among people 65 and older, and the third leading cause of death for all ages. The heated outdoor safety mats reduce slip-and-fall accidents due to snow and ice on outdoor surfaces by keeping them clear and safe.
"These products provide a safer environment around the home during the winter months and are a must-have for the safety-conscious homeowner," said Glazer. "Customers will also appreciate the no-shoveling convenience of these heated mats and the environmentally friendly alternative to calcium chloride when melting snow and ice."
The Heated Outdoor Walkway Mat measures 20" x 60" and
