Redbacks Kneepads to Protect Canada’s Workforce
One of Canada’s leading tool, workwear and PPE suppliers, Toronto based Atlas Machinery Supply Limited, has been appointed as a distributor for the award winning, UK designed and manufactured, Redbacks kneepads.
Established for over 60 years, the family owned company continually researches for proven top products to add to its comprehensive ranges; it has chosen Redbacks kneepads because of their unique leaf-spring design, which unlike foam backed pads, maintain maximum cushioning effect throughout consecutive or prolonged use.
Commenting on the new appointment, Cliff Lockyer, CEO of Redbacks Cushioning Limited said: “We are naturally delighted that our kneepads have been recognised by Atlas Machinery as a potentially big selling line throughout Canada; they were impressed with our own home and international success record after just 3 years in business and, in keeping with their forward thinking policies, were keen to be the first to offer such tried and tested extra safety benefits to their customers”.
The patented design and construction of the company’s products are based on a special moulded leaf-spring suspended in an arch by a flexible honeycomb matrix. When pressure is applied directly above the spring it levels, dispersing the force and spreading the weight. The matrix provides a holding mechanism for the spring to control its bend and stabilise the entire structure, allowing pressure to be distributed evenly time after time.
