Tyvek Shoe Covers Keep Your Boots Dry and Your Jobsite Clean

As the Pacific Northwest is still drying out from a series of huge rain and snowstorms, I feel that this is an appropriate time to talk about our Tyvek ProShield Shoe Covers.

Tyvek ProShield Covers Will Fit any Size Boot
Tyvek ProShield Shoe Covers offer the greatest degree of water resistance available, and they are the most durable shoe cover we offer. Made from the same material that is used to weatherproof houses, these are a perfect fit on any wet and muddy jobsite. Tyvek Shoe Covers feature an elastic band at the top and a high grip finish on the bottom, preventing slips and injuries on wet jobsites. They are sized to fit every size boot, and even feature a breathable material, preventing workboots from becoming too wet and sweaty. 

If you're looking for the toughest shoe cover on market, this is likely your best option.

New Product --- Utility Box Covers

In an effort to create another new product, we actually looked back and rebooted one of our products that was popular eight years ago. Our *new* Utility Box Cover is a quick, affordable, and effective way to keep large utility boxes free from damage.

Utility Box Covers Quickly Keep Boxes Protected
On jobsites, it's not uncommon for transformer and utility boxes to be used to hold things, get paint spilled on them, and get hugely dirty from the muddy and dusty construction environment. With Utility Box Covers, you can quickly attach pre-fitted plastic sheeting with an elastic band. Sold in cases of 12, the covers include the elastic bands needed for a quick install.

This simple and quick step ensures that utility boxes still look brand new at the end of a project. Superintendents have asked us multiple times about covering Utility boxes, because at the end of a project the new homes look fantastic but a beat up and ugly utility box is left visibly standing.

Focusing on Wintertime Jobsite Safety

Winter will soon bring wet weather, snow and ice. And as building continues, the focus on jobsite safety in these conditions becomes more imperative than before. Properly protected jobsites go above and beyond the minimum OSHA mandated requirements for safety.

Beginning with the basics, it is law that all elevated surfaces, stairs, and other potential falling hazards keep workers protected with a handrail system. Typically, jobsites fashion handrails with wood, however, this can be problematic on concrete and it tends to look unprofessional. One of our newer products seeks to address these issues. Safety Boot is a temporary guardrail system that meets all federal and state safety standards. Safety Boot allows builders to quickly mount a temporary wooden guardrail to a plastic boot that anchors to the floor. This accelerates installation time, strengthens the guardrail, and looks far better than a typical wood on wood handrail.

Safety Boot offers a safe and professional looking jobsite guardrail
Another integral part of jobsite safety is properly securing ladders and other standing devices. On wet and icy floors ladders may become unstable and pose substantial risk to the user. An easy and multipurpose fix for this potential issue is to use absorbent floor protection. Using a product such as Surface Liner Vapor, you will have a safe, dry floor surface that is securely held in place. This will protect a floor from damage and keep a ladder from slipping.

Surface Liner Vapor provides the best slip-resistance of any floor covering
Other forms of jobsite protection include items that are worn on site. Water resistant shoe covers with a high-grip footing allow workers to safely walk on wet surfaces that would otherwise be slippery. Depending on how wet, muddy, and dirty a jobsite is, there are different options of shoe covers. Tyvek, plastic, and cloth provide differing levels of protection, with Tyvek and plastic providing the most water resistance and cloth offering up the best footing.

Provided a jobsite maintains stringent safety standards and provides additional materials to ensure safety, enduring the wet winter weather ahead should be a straightforward process. Keep your floors covered, your handrails on, and your workers well equipped.
