Watch your step - Introducing high visibility (Hi-Vis) hose reels
Slow retraction and a stop ball designed to prevent tripping accidents are already standard safety features on our Safety Reels. Our massively popular compressed air hose reels are now available with a new safety feature: high visibility hose.
When it is not used, the hose should always be safely retracted in the reel to prevent tripping accidents, but sometimes - it just isn't. It is lying there on the floor as a potential tripping hazard. That is the reality that we have learned from our customers' experience.
We can't accept that. That is why we are now able to offer our safety reel with a high visibility hose, the Hi-Vis hose. The brightly colored hose is designed to stand out from the floor to alert anyone passing it to mind their step.
Did you know that falls are the second leading cause of accidental or unintentional injury deaths worldwide?
According to the Bureaeu of Labor Statistics, in the U.S, more than 25% of all workplace related injuries involving days away from work come from slips, trips and fall accidents.
If a different hose color could prevent just a single one of them from tripping and breaking, spraining or straining legs or arms, it should definitely be considered.
The Hi-Vis version of the Safety Reel has the same great features that has been so widely appreciated. High flow rate, low pressure drop, ease of use, slow retraction, sturdiness and reliability. Now, also with high visibility - for an even safer workplace.
