Catch the latest gossip from the Scottish BPA

There was a long list of very satisfied customers and brand new faces that attended our stand yesterday at the British Parking Association.

Just some of the great feedback received came from the likes of Perth and Kinross Council who ‘Love the white Patrol Shirts’, Dundee Council who will be trialling our innovative ParkVest next month and Fife Council who in April 2013 will be putting our Patrol Range to the test as they ‘meet their requirements inside out!’

Staff uniformsOur staff uniforms always bring plenty of attention to our stand, along with the infamous business card competition which was won by the President of Parking Anjna Patel. In good faith she kindly auctioned the bottle of champagne off for her charity Parasol for injured soldiers.

And as for Mr Lines, he enjoyed a good game of curling and even met an Olympic Curling Team member!

Once again thank you for all the support and attendees to our stand yesterday, we very much enjoyed speaking to everyone.

Uniform Wear; Innovation is the name of the game

Innovation is just some of the things we will be talking about this week at the British Parking Association in Scotland this Wednesday the 24th.

We design and develop all of our uniform wear with input from people who actually use the garments every day. The initial idea often comes about through feedback we receive – for example, we have just launched our new concept of our ParkVest after feedback that utility belts have caused strain on the backs of parking attendants.

The ParkVest is essentially a utility vest which incorporates printer holders and pockets to distribute the PA’s equipment evenly across the body, thus preventing long term sickness and making their job role more comfortable and effective. The challenge we have successfully met is to design very high quality technical garments at a price that the whole parking market can afford.

 Uniform wear

Also in the midst of the thick snow and ice we experienced last winter, we’ve launched a snow grip which fits on to all types of shoe and boot, providing much-needed additional grip and safety on snow and ice by means of special studs.

Our snow grips have numerous studs as well as chevron grips across the whole foot area. Other products on the market only cover part of the foot, or have less studs, and so can be less effective. Where health and safety is concerned, we only offer the most effective product.

Come and join us this Wednesday for an update on our latest and greatest ideas. We look forward to seeing you there!

New uniform wear – The Patrol Shirt

We’ve recently launched our brand new Patrol Shirt, ideal for the spell of warm weather we are having at the moment. Pete, a Police Constable based in Scotland shares his thoughts on the brand new uniform wear he has worn as a trial over the past week:

 

“I have been given another product for review by the fantastic people at Keltic Clothing. The product this time around is their newly developed Patrol Shirt. It is designed for uniform and security personnel and uses technology often found in sportswear in that it is made of moisture wicking fabric, drawing moisture away from the body.

 uniform wear

The product is available in both Black and White, retailing from Keltic Clothing for £15.95 per unit. Moving away from the moisture wicking fabric for a moment, the shirt clearly has some important features, making it attractive for active personnel. It features epaulettes on each shoulder which make it easy for the user to attach identifiable numbers or letters. They are secured to the shirt by means of a small piece of velcro. The fabric is such that small holes could be made if required for the numbers to be attached. 

 

Moving to the main body of the shirt. It has two radio loops near to the chest area. They would be suitable for attaching a torch or any other piece of equipment required.

 

The shirt also feature two small pockets, one on each sleeve. I found that they were quite neatly positioned just near to the bottom of the sleeve, meaning that if the wearer had on body armour or some other form of sleeveless jacket, the pen pockets would always be accessible. Both of the pen pockets were split into two. 

 

We thought that we would wear the product as a normal, everyday shirt, thereafter wear it whilst carrying out some fitness training to truly test out the moisture wicking capabilities.

 

I thought that wearing the shirt whilst doing some cycling would give a true indication of the shirts capabilities for taking moisture away from the body. I went cycling for an hour and did sweat a considerable amount. I was keen to see what the reaction of the fabric would be. To try and copy the fact that most wearers of the Patrol Shirt will have on a vest or body armour of some sort, I wore a cycling jacket over the product to try and simulate the other layer. 

 

I found that all of the moisture produced went straight from the body and into the fabric, without dripping off onto other clothing, making things uncomfortable. After the cycle had finished, the product remained free from any odours and any moisture dried in very quickly. 

 

Overall, I was very satisfied with the performance of the Patrol Shirt and its moisture wicking capabilities. It would be an excellent choice to keep personnel cool during long summer days especially with other items worn on top”.

Neath Port Talbot’s brand new warden uniforms with Keltic

Having recently supplied a full warden uniform order for Neath Port Talbot, we were delighted to receive great feedback and photos of the guys in their new gear.

Warden uniforms

Moving away from their black warden uniforms of previous years, their brand new warden uniforms are having a great impact.

“The feedback that I have had from the staff, now that they have been wearing the enforcement uniform a couple of months is really good they are all very happy with the quality of the kit. The coats and Strider boots in particular are very impressive. We have also had some positive feedback from the public in that we are more visible now we have moved away from a mainly black warden uniform”
