Winter weather is coming. We don’t like it any more than you do, but that doesn’t make it any less true. How prepared is your team for the change in weather?
Chances are you know Agilix Solutions for our industrial automation solutions, or maybe you lean on us for the latest and greatest products in power transmission, datacom, or electrical supply. It’s true that we’re a leading distributor in each of those fields, but did you know we’re also your connection for a wide variety of winter weather preparation products?
In this article, we’ll pull back the curtain and introduce you to just a few of the products in our warehouses and on our sales counter shelves that can make life a little bit easier for you and your team this winter.
Winter Weather Clothing and Gear
Cold Weather Hand and Head Protection
What makes a great pair of winter work gloves? Cold protection is, of course, a top priority. But it can’t compromise performance. After all, the warmest gloves in the world won’t be very useful if your team can’t get the job done wearing them. Agilix Solutions offers a wide variety of winter weather gloves from the industry’s top manufacturers like MCR Safety, Superior Glove, and PIP tailored to keeping your team warm without severely limiting dexterity or range of motion.
When it comes to the rest of the body, Agilix Solutions has you covered (literally). Ironwear offers a complete line of lightweight, but heavy-duty, reflective freezer jackets and bib overalls to keep your team warm in the harshest of winter weather conditions. Or you can take it to the next level with innovative heated and insulated jackets, vests, and hoodies from Milwaukee.
Heating Accessories and Devices for Winter Weather
Fingers and toes are often the first parts of the body to go numb in cold temperatures. PIP’s hand warmers provide 8 hours of heat upon activation, at a price that can’t be beaten. Slip a couple in your gloves or pockets, or in the cuff of a stocking cap to keep your ears warm!
In-Room Space and Baseboard Heaters
Have a particular room in your facility that’s difficult to keep warm? Check out the electric unit heaters from QMark. For larger enclosed areas, we offer electric baseboard heaters from Berko® in a variety of capacities, ensuring there’s a solution for your space no matter the size!
Perhaps it’s not a person, but a pipe you’re aiming to keep warm this winter. Mitigate the potential disasters that can come with frozen pipes by putting Emerson Electric’s EasyHeat® FreezeFreeTM self-regulating pipe cable to use. It’s an affordable and efficient way to keep your pipes warm during the coldest months of the year.
Winter Weather Fall Protection
Cold temperatures aren’t the only hazard you need to protect your team from when winter weather comes to town. Ice and compacted snow present a safety risk. Agilix Solutions can help you prevent unnecessary injury due to slips and falls this winter. We offer two different formulas of snow and ice melt from MORGO. SNO PLOW is a magnesium chloride-based formula that is 100% soluble and contains no harmful chemicals. CAL-MELT is a fast-acting calcium-chloride based product with a lower freeze point. Both products get the job done well when it comes to taking care of snow and ice hazards.
Back Up Power Solutions
Winter storms bring all types of additional potential hazards. One of the biggest is power loss. Agilix Solutions offers both light commercial generators and industrial-grade generators from Kohler Power to help you maintain uptime and productivity when you unexpectedly lose power.
And We’ve Only Just Begun
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the list of winter weather preparation products we offer customers. From standbys you put in your arsenal every year to items you didn’t even know existed, if you have a specific need we probably have a product to address it.
