The countdown to Christmas has now begun, with only a week to go I’m sure all staff working outside are feeling the chill. Find your ideal security clothes this winter starting with our Patrol Anorak.
Security Clothing this winter
A key part to any security guards uniform in the winter is a warm, insulated jacket: Our Patrol anorak is ideal. This comes available as a 3-in-1 garment which includes the zip out patrol fleece, 8 times more waterproof than the highest level of waterproofness and many more times more breathable than the highest breathability at EN343.
This winter clothing for security comes complete with all the features for security staff including epaulettes, mesh lining, two radio chest pocket, radio loops and much more. Ideal for the winter it also includes a higher shaped collar for maximum warmth and weather protection.
Warm and insulated garments are always ideal for dealing with uncertain temperatures. We will continue to blog on further security clothing and equipment to ensure you get the ideal security clothing this winter.
Winter months are unpredictable; we could experience the harsh snow of last year or a complete wash out. This winter we can help your Civil Enforcement Officers with our great range of warden uniforms designed to tackle all weather conditions.
“Our new Patrol Jackets have industry-leading test results for waterproofing, breathability and reflectiveness, and they come in 30 colours from stock”. This is just one of the many enforcement uniforms we supply that keep your CEO’s warm and dry.

With only 2 weeks till Christmas, the winter chill has definitely arrived. It can sometimes be difficult to create a smart and sophisticated look when wrapping up from the cold weather but with our corporate jackets your uniform can look pristine and well presented, whilst still keeping you warm.

Our Lindale trench coat is a great example and the design has incorporated latest fashion developments to keep up to date with fashion trends, such as in the new Armani autumn/winter collection of corporate coats.
Ideal for staff that are out on the road, sales teams and events, we can offer an ideal corporate jacket for your staff both the ladies Lindale and matching men’s whipcord coat.
Magnum Strider Boot
A police Constable in the North reviewed our brand new Magnum Strider boots for a week whilst completing the tough day to day duties that police officers face. Hot off the press from our Magnum strider shoe, our boots are set to be a complete success.
Here’s what he had to say about the excellent waterproofing qualities of the magnum Strider boot.
“During the week long test, there was one day of continuing heavy rainfall. I had the pleasure of having to walk through a couple of fields which were extremely saturated. I was the only one who came out of the other end with dry feet; I took great pleasure of explaining the benefits of the Strider boot’s technology to my colleagues.”
This technology is that of the Ion mask which offers a breathable and waterproof covering that allows the boot to repel water, dirt and chemicals whilst being easy to clean and be quick drying.
For more information on our Magnum shoes and boots or if you are interested in providing your own review, please call us on 08450 66 66 99 – we’d love to hear from you!

This was a great idea, hosted by Coral Holloway of Dudley Metropolitan Council held at Solihull Council. We can’t thank Coral and Kim Stone from Solihull Council enough for their hospitality!

We had some great feedback on some of our school crossing patrol wear, for example, really positive comments on our waterproof black SCP gloves and the cupcakes went down really well. Keltic held a prize draw to win a bottle of Champagne. Our Director David Barry gave us the honour of pulling the lucky name out of the box. Congratulations to the lucky winner, Tina Green from Worcestershire County Council.

We are delighted to hear that the fashion designer and all-round legend Sir Paul Smith is to be awarded the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design Award. Given last year to Alexander McQueen, Sir Paul will pick up this award at the British Fashion Awards.
Sir Paul is famous for his quintessentially British tailoring, and it is his amazing eye for detail that sets his suiting apart. We take huge inspiration from Sir Paul and many of our recent corporate suits developments such as our new linings showing a map of Europe and the ruffled back panel detail on our latest ladies jacket are a respectful nod to recent Paul Smith collections.
Sir Paul, who was knighted in 2000, said his success is due to two qualities often overlooked in fashion “organisation and being down to earth”. He said “The thing I’m most proud of out of anything is continuity. I’m reliable, polite and I deliver clothes on time that are well-made at the right price”. Modest as ever! We agree wholeheartedly with this statement and believe that a uniform suit that is well made and delivered on time is the strongest foundation that a uniform suits supplier can have. We look to recreate some of Sir Paul Smith’s magic in the uniform suits world, with a traditional work ethic, reliable service and delivery, and a keen eye for design and detail.
New Corporate suit lining
Previous winners of the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design include Dame Vivienne Westwood and Stephen Jones.

As you know this year, Keltic attended the Road safety GB Conference in Chester. The seminars included lots of really interesting topics such as Speed and wider Road Safety topics. We had a great time at the Exhibition too!
Keltic held a prize draw to win a Magnum of Champagne, and Alan Kennedy who is the Chair Road Safety GB and Road Safety manager at Durham County council gave us the honour of pulling the name out of the box.
Champagne Draw Winner
The lucky winner of our “Win a Magnum of Champagne” Business Card Competition was Clair George who is the Road Safety Officer at Peterborough City Council. Clair has kindly sent us over a photograph of her with her rather large bottle of champagne as a thank you.
Thanks again to everyone who attended and made the day a great success!
We’ve been travelling up and down the country talking to school crossing patrol staff and road safety officers and managers, and a key piece of feedback we’ve received is that no one is able to find a waterproof glove that keeps patrols hands warm and dry but doesn’t cost the earth.
New School Crossing Patrol Glove
We think we may have found the answer. We’ve just introduced a brand new glove that costs less than £10 and is waterproof, breathable, really comfortable and has a great grip on the palm. A number of local authorities are trialing it currently with good feedback so far. If you’d like to join them, please call Serena or Laura in our School Crossing Patrol Department on 08450 66 66 99.
