Come see our brand new Patrol Shirt next week at Parkex

In a matter of days we will be exhibiting at Parkex where we are very excited to introduce our brand new security uniforms, not yet seen by the public. Our milestone product this year will be our fantastic Patrol Shirt ideal uniforms for security and parking staff.

Security uniform

Uniforms for security

Our Patrol Shirt is a definite update to the traditional uniforms security staff wore in the 1960s widely known still as the classic Pilot Shirt. Our new Patrol Shirt looks like an upmarket poloshirt and shares many similarities with the high tech sports clothing worn by top athletes. This ground breaking shirt is made from a moisture wicking fabric that draws moisture away from the body when the wearer gets hot, and it has the required epaulettes for CEOs to display their individual CEO numbers.

This brand new garment belongs to our innovative Patrol Range which is at the cutting edge of parking and security uniforms both in terms of fabric and design.

Speak with Vicki Whitbrook for further information on security uniform innovations on 01922 616 999 or stop by and see us on our stand D42 next week.

The all new ParkVest – see our latest innovation at Parkex!

With less than a week to go we couldn’t wait to shout about our brand new product we will be showcasing at Parkex. Our new security clothing garments are set to provide security and parking staff alike with fantastic quality and comfort during their working day.

Our ParkVest is based on the Police-issue Tactical Vest, but includes a number of specific pockets and add-ons for the special equipment staff carry. Our security clothes allow the weight to be spread evenly across the upper body for better comfort.

This also helps to prevent back pain, foot pain, and increase morale and deployment by decreasing sickness and absence. This is win-win for both staff and managers alike.  The ParkVest even has specific pockets for a printer that allows a ticket to be issued without removing the printer from the pocket, PCN pockets, and the option to add a Klichfast docks for radios/bodycams.

Our Parkvest is a great update to traditional clothing security and parking staff traditionally wear and offers a great alterative to classic styles.

For further information on our security clothing and equipment call Vicki on 01922 616 999 or even better, visit us at Parkex stand D42 opposite the Parkex Cafe – we’d love to see you there!

What are the rules for school crossing patrol uniforms?

The Home Office states that by Section 28 (1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, all School Crossing Patrols are required to wear a knee length outer garment with full sleeves, consisting of no more than two fluorescent colours covering the whole outer area of the garment (but may include non-fluorescent trimmings).

The garment needs to be certified, by a notified body, to the highest class of the standard for “High Visibility Warning Clothing”, currently EN471, Class 3. The garment must include at least two bands of hi vis tape on the torso and one 50mm band, not greater than 300mm from the hem of the body.

School Crossing Patrols must also wear a peaked hat, a beret, or alternative headwear for religious reasons.

Should all school crossing patrols be in prismatic tape?

School crossing patrol wardens and their supervisors and managers do a great job keeping our children safe on the roads. At Keltic, it’s our job to help them.

To this end, we’re very excited to be able to offer jackets with Reflexite prismatic garment tape – which can be seen up to 7 times further away than the standard (glass bead) tape.

The difference between prismatic and glass bead tape can easily be seen in this photograph, and not only is prismatic tape much more reflective, it also retains this reflectivity for the lifetime of the garment, unlike glass bead tape where the glass beads wear off over time and therefore the tape loses reflectivity.

A final fact about glass bead tape is that it doesn’t reflect fully in the rain. We have a demonstration booth which we took to the Road Safety GB conference in Chester last year which shows how glass bead tape “blacks out” where raindrops fall on it. We think this is an issue, with the amount of rain we get in the UK (including today, it’s pouring down here in the Midlands!). Crucially, prismatic tape still reflects fully in the rain.

For all of the above reasons, should all school crossing patrols in the UK be in prismatic tape?
