Original Press Release:
Gateway Safety's New GirlzGear(TM) Collection Meets the Need for Women's Sizes in Eye and Head Protection
February 9, 2012-According to OSHA, safety equipment that is not sized, or does not fit, properly can seriously compromise personal safety on the job. A recent survey of manufacturers of protective equipment at a National Safety Council annual meeting found that only 14 percent offered safety products in women's sizes. The lack of appropriate PPE for women can mean serious safety and health risks for those required to wear protective equipment on the job.
Gateway Safety provides a solution for women with GirlzGear(TM), a collection of some of its most trusted safety products, now specifically designed for women. GirlzGear comes in colors, sizes, and styling that women will find more comfortable and properly proportioned-in the classic brands in eye and head protection from Gateway Safety's award-winning product lines.
The GirlzGear eyewear collection includes StarLite® SM, StarLite® SM Gumballs, and Scorpion® SM-established styles that are sized 10% smaller than the originals to fit the female profile better. StarLite SM and Scorpion SM are available in all of the traditional lens and temple color options; StarLite SM also comes with a pink temple and a pink mirror lens. StarLite SM Gumballs offers a dazzling array of ten color choices. And the trendy Metro(TM) line of safety eyewear features two up-to-the-minute frame options for GirlzGear: pink and tortoise shell.
All women's heads are not the same size, so GirlzGear designed the Serpent® vented safety helmet with a rotating ratchet adjustment system that creates a custom fit for nearly anyone. Serpent is lightweight and comfortable and comes in new pink and nine other colors.
Although they're colorful, feminine, and fun, GirlzGear products are serious about safety. All Gateway Safety eyewear meets the ANSI Z87.1+ high impact standard, and Serpent helmets meet the ANSI Z89.1 impact standard.
