Work shoes are slip-resistant

Emma Safety Footwear has made available Mitchel work shoes. Designed for safety and comfort, Mitchel work shoes are made of full-grain leather with a wear-resistant coating, antistatic insoles with reinforced heels and Gripforce® DUO anti-slip outer soles reportedly capable of withstanding high temperatures. The shoes' steel toes protect users' feet from dropped materials and tools. Inside the shoes, Hydro-Tec® Sanitized Silver lining material is said to provide ventilation and moisture removal, and "Comfort Sponges" around the ankles provide additional padding for comfort and support.

Flashing tape provides airtight seal

DuPont™ Safety & Construction has introduced DuPont FlexWrap™ EZ self-adhering flashing tape. Designed to seal around small exterior penetrations of various shapes, DuPont FlexWrap EZ tape is said to help improve a building's energy efficiency by creating an airtight, water-resistant barrier. The 100 percent butyl adhesive reportedly provides a strong seal during extreme temperatures. DuPont FlexWrap EZ tape is available in 2 3/4-inch-wide by 15-foot-long rolls.
