Specialised PPE to the fore

Specialised PPE to the foreNoshcon 2014 allowed Afrox the opportunity to emphasise its welding and cutting applications, including gas equipment, as well as its new range of personal protective equipment (PPE). On show was gas equipment such as flash-back arrestors, torches, SABS-approved gas hoses and PPE for welding – such as the company’s new auto-darkening helmet.

Ferdie Pretorius, product manager for safety equipment and welding accessories at Afrox South Africa, is exceptionally excited about the company’s PPE. “In order to support our gas equipment we’re now selling safety equipment and PPE. This is important to our customer base.”

At the launch, Afrox also showed off its new range of leather, general handling, welding and synthetic gloves. “There has been a positive response with some interest in our new range of gloves,” Pretorius reports.

Being big on safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ) policy, Afrox also wanted to support Noshcon by promoting safe behaviour; such as using the correct safety procedures. The company also does a lot of gas-installation safety audits on customer sites, recommending safe practices and products they can use. “The networking aspect is important; we want to share information, pick up ideas and take the lead in the safety environment sector.

“We want our customers to remember that, while quality comes at a price, it is a price they must be willing to pay. The longevity of the Afrox PPE is superior compared to other cheaper imitations that won’t last as long or offer the same level of protection,” he advises.

In support of this, the company backs up its products with a return policy in the event of factory faults. “We like to offer our customers the best solutions,” smiles Pretorius.
