Water off a duck’s back – Hurry free sample jacket for RSGB newsfeed subscribers!

Patrol Jackets

You have to feel sympathy for the poor school crossing patrol warden with all this terrible wet weather. They have certainly had a lot of weather conditions thrown at them recently with all the wind, hail and rain. Wearing poor quality jackets can often mean that they have only just dried out when they have to go out again in soggy uniforms for the afternoon rush.

Luckily here at Keltic our full range of School Crossing Patrol jackets are made to protect your staff in all weathers. Our Superior STOP jackets are eight times more waterproof than the highest European standard. They even have drop-tail backs to avoid wet-bum syndrome from when cars go by and splash puddles upwards!

We are so confident that you will love our SCP jackets as much as we do that for one week only we are offering a free sample of our school crossing patrol wet weather gear for the first 20 Road Safety GB Newsfeed subscribers to call Louise Bennett on 08450 66 66 99.

Vicki’s marathon success

Vicki Whitbrook braved the weather last Sunday to compete in her first ever road marathon and completed it in just under 4hours in the worst weather conditions possible! She completed the first half of the marathon in an hour and a half but the cold soon took its toll!

Vicki before her race

She mentions this as being a ‘tough guy marathon’ having to compete against hale, rain, flooding up to her knees in parts and ferocious winds! Even main athletes were half hour over target due to the awful conditions.

However hard it was, the run was definitely worth it, there is no way for preparing for those conditions it’s just mind over matter the whole way. The run was a huge achievement for Vicki and she raised an amazing £300 with the amount still rising!

The final Sprint

We would all like to say congratulations for her success and we are very proud of her for battling on and completing the marathon in such a fantastic time. Well Done!!!

Road Safety GB North West group is dazzled by new Prismatic Garment Tape

Prismatic tape

Prismatic Tape on Superior STOP Jacket

A demonstration of new Reflexite Prismatic Garment tape technology got the Road Safety GB North West group really excited about this new technology. One of the main benefits is that it can be seen up to seven times further away than glass bead tape, which is usually used on SCP uniforms, and it is now well within the budget of most local authorities.

So, for a little background knowledge, there are two main reflective tape technologies – glass bead from the 1960s and prismatic which is bang up to date with current technology. Both offer EN471 conforming levels of reflectivity. However, tests show that with glass bead tape, the glass beads wear off over time and with washing, so that the reflective values drop dramatically. The reflectiveness of glass bead tape is also drastically reduced in the rain. With prismatic technology, the tape retains its reflectivity for the lifetime of the garment, and gives exceptional performance in the rain. Tests have shown that Reflexite prismatic tape can be seen up to seven times further away than glass bead tape – thus making it a much safer option for those who work outside.

The consensus of the of the Road Safety North West group was that now this prismatic tape was available well within their budget, there was no excuse not to use it because it protects their staff better than the current industry standard, glass bead, which is based on technology from the 1960s.

You can find the Reflexite prismatic tape on Keltic’s Superior STOP jacket. Request a sample, a demonstration or a brochure, by calling Serena Groom or Louise Bennett on 08450 666699.
