TIMco is expanding its SHIELD brand with the official launch of a First Aid range, as well as introducing the new SHIELD Protective Board.
Coming as part of the rapidly expanding SHIELD Site Protection range, the additions are set to help TIMco deliver on its ambitions to become a ‘one stop shop’ for builders merchants as well as help boost safety in construction.
Available now via the TIMco website, the new range includes a selection of workplace and vehicle first aid kits, as well as a heavy bleed and burns kit. The range also includes an eye care kit, heavy duty plasters and an accident book.
“The welfare and safety of our end users is of paramount importance to us here at TIMco, which is why we have launched this extensive First Aid range under our growing SHIELD brand, as well as our new SHIELD protective board,” said Stewart Lloyd, Associate Director of Purchasing for TIMco. “We look forward to introducing exciting new product additions to our expanding customer base.”
The workplace first aid kits include BSC and HSE kits. The BSC kits meet the first new standard for statutory First Aid Kits in the workplace since 1997. These kits reflect the changes in both workplace practice and risks, making them demonstrably more ‘fit for purpose’ in today’s environment, said TIMco. The kits come in a durable polypropylene case and are wall mountable with an integrated bracket. The HSE kits contain content based on 1997 Approved Code of Practice and come in a durable polypropylene box with green safety clips, integrated carry handle, and a secure airtight lid to provide protection from dust and water. All workplace kits are available in three sizes – small, medium and large.
The Heavy Bleed & Burns kit is for rapid and effective treatment to the kind of serious injuries tradespeople may face on site It includes a major bleed trauma dressing and sterile burn dressings. The Eye Wash Station kit includes saline solution, eye pods and pipettes and meets current HSE regulations. Both kits come in a wall-mountable polypropylene case.
The SHIELD Protective Board has been developed to protect and preserve all hard floor and short twill covered floor surfaces from dust, dirt, spills, sprays and site grime. This new product complements the existing Ram Board product in the SHIELD range. The FSC certified board is made from recycled compressed fibre board and this innovative protection system is also 100% recyclable and reusable. It is also breathable and can be laid on wooden floors and new concrete. It will not trap any moisture, therefore allowing the substrate to dry whilst also protecting it from damage.
Earlier this year, TIMco completed a significant expansion of its warehouse facilities to 120,000 sq ft.
