Tingley Rubber Company: 100 years of Satisfaction

tingley

The Tingley Rubber Company offers a wide variety of waterproof footwear and raingear, as well as high-visibility workwear. It’s easy for us to trust this brand, especially since it’s been around for over 100 years. With a lot of hard work and dedication, the Tingley brand was started by a man named Charles O. Tingley. It began with him selling bicycle tire plugs in 1896 (he literally rode his bicycle from city to city), and it progressed into the vast company you know today. Tingley’s travels from New York to Massachusetts to Washington, D.C. and back to New Jersey were well worth it, as he then developed his business idea into the successful Tingley Rubber Company. His two sons joined to help the family company grow into what it is today, and the company has been meeting valued customers’ needs ever since. Continue Reading…

Workwear Fabrics: What you Need to Know

workwear fabric blog

If your work is tough, you need work clothes that are just as tough. You need clothes made for working people, workwear that can withstand the rugged job you put them through. You need workwear that is durable, comfortable, and protective, from the best brands like Carhartt, Wrangler, Bulwark, Filson, Dickies, Red Kap, Under Armour, Wolverine, and more.

When it comes to deciding on the right work clothes for your particular job, it often comes down to the type of fabric you choose. Cotton duck is the most popular fabric for workwear. It is weighty and strong, coming from the Dutch word doek, which was a fabric once used to make clothing for sailors. It’s also the same type of fabric used to make sails, tents, shoes, sand bags, and other rugged products, since it is so resistant to tearing and can handle rough use. Continue Reading…

Stay Safe in the Heat!

Heat safety

Summer’s coming, so we thought it was about the right time to share what we know about keeping cool at work, as the temperature rises. It’s all too easy to think that all you need to do is lather on the suntan lotion and you’re good to get out there, but it’s not always that simple.

Although a lot of jobs are outdoors and do require that you take plenty of precautions if you’re going to be exposed to the sun all day, a bigger danger present in most lines of work is heat stress. And that can happen outdoors, working on the construction sites, in maintenance, landscaping and agriculture, but it is an indoor problem too. If you work in commercial kitchens, laundries or factories, you need to take care this summer. Why? Well according to OSHA, thousands of workers fall ill with heat stress every year. And if its not taken seriously, it can even kill. Continue Reading…

Stay Safe, Stay Cool

The summer’s coming, we promise. No seriously, it’s right around the corner – it’ll be here before you know it. And that’s great, right? Well yes, and no.

If you’re hanging out by the pool, then great! Whenever you get too hot, you jump right in. But then again, when you’re out on the job, at work on the site or generally exposed to the sun and heat all day without a proper break, it’s a different ball game altogether.  Continue Reading…
