One size does not fit all

Get help finding PPE that fits

We understand that when it comes to personal protective equipment (PPE) one size does not fit all. It may seem obvious, but correctly sized PPE can help avoid accidents, reduce discomfort and increase productivity. If employees find their PPE uncomfortable to wear chances are they won't wear it.

Safety eyewear that really fits

If your protective eyewear doesn't fit properly this is not only frustrating, it can lead to discomfort, eye strain and may actually increase your risk of injury. Our range of safety eyewear includes spectacle and goggle designs that adapt to your face as well as a range of lens shades and coatings for a variety of workplace environments and light conditions.

Safety gloves that fit like a second skin

While it is important to choose the correct safety gloves for the job and environment, it is equally important to ensure your safety gloves fit properly. A correct fit means the gloves will be comfortable to wear and you are more likely to keep them on. If gloves are too big they can affect grip or get caught in moving parts or tools; too small and they will distract from the task at hand.

Reliable breathing protection

Where respiratory protective equipment is used, it must be able to provide adequate protection for the wearer. As people come in all sorts of shapes and sizes it is unlikely that one particular type or size of RPE facepiece will fit everyone. RPE can't protect the wearer if it leaks and one of the main reasons for this is poor fit – facemasks need to fit the wearer's face to be effective. Fit testing will ensure that the equipment selected is suitable for the wearer.

Adjustable head and face protection

Poorly fitted safety helmets are not only uncomfortable, but they also won’t offer the right level of protection. The suspension harness should act like a shock absorber and allow a level of airflow. Adjustability ensures a secure, stable fit without discomfort, irritation or abrasion which can indicate incorrect sizing.​
