Arco, the UK’s leading safety company, has launched its 2012/13 Big Book catalogue, with the biggest selection of workwear, safety equipment and workplace safety products, plus advice and information on training packages and consultancy services to help keep people safe at work.
With over 936 pages, the largest catalogue to date, the Arco Big Book has become the reference tool for safety managers, business owners and workers throughout the UK and Ireland for selecting the best safety products and advice. The new catalogue makes it easier than ever to select the right equipment for the job with the new Arco ‘Safety Language’, a range of easy to use symbols that help to make product selection easy. This year’s catalogue has a new look and comes with plenty of new offerings, including new products and new vendors.
With winter just around the corner, keeping employees warm and dry is essential. Arco’s new Trojan Baselayer range has been designed as a step up in thermal protection. Each garment in the range is made from Hydrobase fabric and wicks away moisture whilst providing warmth.
For those working in cold conditions year round, for example in a cold storage area or packaging environment, providing sufficient thermal protection is essential. Therefore, based on customer feedback, Arco has developed a range of cold store clothing, for comfortable, robust and hard wearing head to toe protection.
With our hands being one of our most valuable tools, adequately protecting them is essential. New to the catalogue is the Arco Industrial Skincare range, a three-step system to clean and protect hands, and the Neoprene Glove family, offering a versatile solution to hand protection for a variety of working environments.
Dedicated to providing innovative safety products, a revolutionary metatarsal boot will be available in this year’s catalogue. The boot, developed after extensive trials and testing, features Poron® XRD impact protection technology built into the tongue providing protection that replaces the bulky metal in metatarsal boots and offers the wearer a comfortable, flexible fit.
With the widest selection ever in a Big Book catalogue, Arco has built on its existing welding range to offer a total head to toe solution in welding protection. With an entire section dedicated to welding, customers will be able to find protective clothing, Kroma caps, welding goggles, helmets, respiratory protection and gloves all in one place. New vendor Karcher, leaders in cleaning technology, appear in the catalogue for the first time with a range of innovative power washers and vacuums suitable for industrial use.
At a time when every penny counts, cutting costs doesn’t have to mean compromising on safety. Following on from the successful launch of the Arco Essentials range earlier this year, Arco will be introducing new products into the current range of competitively priced, great value safety products and workwear to keep workers safe and help businesses save money too.
With safety at the heart of its business, the Arco Training and Consultancy’s range of training programmes is available to businesses wherever they are located. The team, with specialist knowledge ranging from agriculture and petrochemical, to food and construction, offers health and safety services to businesses large and small across the UK and Ireland.
