They have a relaxed fit so that they are roomy in the seat & thigh and will be comfortable all day, even after the long work hours.

Top Painters Pants

They have a hammer loop and spacious pockets for your phone and any small tools. The relaxed fit is great for all day movement.

Top Cargo Pants

Image result for fireThe first thing everyone notices about flame resistant clothing is that it is sometimes double the price of regular work wear. But why is it so important? We all know it protects you from short-term thermal incidents. But what some don’t know is that the main reason we wear it is not to protect ourselves from the fire itself, but from the possibility of igniting and burning after the heat has been removed. Normal clothing such as cotton and nylon continue burning even after the heat source is removed.

Yes, the cost of FR clothing can be more expensive but in the long run it will save you a lot of money. The type of fabric used for FR clothing lasts a lot longer than regular clothes that get worn out easily. Also, the cost of injury these days is absurd! A burn can result in medical fees, lost work time and increased insurance.

However, at Construction Gear, we try to bring you FR clothing at the lowest price possible. See below for some of the most popular FR clothing and accessories we carry.

This week we want to feature Ergodyne, a hardcore & reliable work wear brand. Ergodyne is the brand of choice for those who demand performance, productivity and a return on their investment. They sell everything from warming apparel to duffel bag gear storage. They are a do-it-all brand and we’re proud to sell their product.

Back in 1983, they began the motto “Make the Workplace a Betterplace”. And they have stood up to that standard ever since. The ProFlex line was the first to emerge in 1985 which soon was followed by the introduction of vibration-reducing gloves, one of their best selling products. By 2001, they sorted out all of their “new business issues” and began the Tenacious Work Gear line. This gave way to all of their amazing products they offer to us now!

Our top products here at Construction Gear are no doubt Tenacious.

Last week we talked about cleaning out the things you do not need from your garage & cleaning up the floors. Now that we’re done with the dirty job, lets work on the fun part…organizing. There are so many different ways to organize your garage but we’re going to give you a few easy ideas and you can pick the best ones to suit your family.

You’re going to be working with power tools for some of these tips so make sure you head over to get some safety glasseswork gloves, and tool holders to make the job safer & easier!

 

First, lets get things off the ground with Ceiling Track Storage:

You’ll need:

Three 2 X 2s (however long you want the track to be)

Three 1 X 4s (same length as the 2x2s)

Big Plastic Storage Bins (make sure they have a lip on the outside)

1.Screw the 2×2’s into the ceiling (spacing them far enough that the bins fit just inbetween them).

2. Screw the 1 x 4’s on top of the 2×2’s (flat side down)

3. Fill the storage bins with lightweight things such as decorations, sleeping bags, etc and place in the tracks! Label the bottom so you know what is in each!

This next one is super easy & cheap. Just get some PVC piping and you can make easy & fail-proof rake/shovel storage & power tool storage.

 

Our last easy tip is to get some heavy duty hooks at your local Home Depot or Lowes and hang your bikes up to save even more room!

If you’re anything like my family, you cannot see the garage floor and it looks nowhere near the picture above. We don’t use it for cars, we use it basically for junk. We store everything in the garage from Christmas trees to lawn mowers and there is absolutely no room to walk in to retrieve it. In PA, it is October but we are still having some warm summer weather so it’s the perfect time to open up that garage door, air it out & get clean.

This two part series is going to help you clean your garage & organize it in unique ways that fits you and your family. We’ll also help you find safety gear you’ll need to complete the project! Each “part” is going to require about a weekends’ (or more if you’re a perfectionist) worth of work so prepare accordingly.

 

Part 1: Cleaning Your Garage Out

 

1.) GET RID OF IT: If it no longer has a purpose…pitch it, sell it or donate it.

You never know what a neighbor could need or a friend. If you have a hard time letting go of that bed frame from ten years ago, think of the many people that could actually be putting it to use before it falls apart. Plus you can make some extra cash for things we’re going to need later.

2.) CLEAN: Even though I cannot currently see my garage floor from the junk, I don’t think I want to. All the rust, dirt & oil that it has collected is probably atrocious. Remove the things you decided to keep in your garage to the lawn for a few hours & deep clean the floor. It will make you feel better. Most of us have concrete garage floors so to draw the gunk out of the floor, each type of stain requires different chemicals. You are going to want knee pads, safety glasses & gloves for this. And ALWAYS make sure the area you are working in is well ventilated & away from pets & children.

We need to decipher what kind of stains you have in your garage first.

Paint? You’ll need paint stripper & absorbent material. Make a creamy paste & put a thick amount on top of the paint stain. Wait 20 minutes. Scrape off the paste with a scraper & repeat if necessary. Scrub with scouring powder & rinse.

-Make sure to wear a respirator, rubber gloves & safety glasses.

Rust? Pour 1/4 cup of muriatic acid INTO 2 cups of water in a plastic tub. Apply the acid to the rust with a brush. Wait 5 minutes. Scrub & repeat if necessary.

-For this make sure you have rubber boots, goggles, a respirator & rubber gloves.

Rinse & Scrub with water after using chemicals.

Oil/Grease? Put 1 oz. of trisodium phosphate into a cub of water in a small plastic container. Ass 1 cup of absorbent material to make a paste. Put a thick layer of the paste of the oil and leave for 24 HOURS. Scrape off the paste. Scrub with water & nylon brush and rinse. Repeat if necessary.

-Make sure you wear eye protection & rubber gloves.

 

3.) ADD FOAM FLOORING TILES OR PAINT (optional): If you are unhappy with how the stains came out, you have other options. You can purchase foam floor mat puzzle piece tiles or paint the floor with epoxy paint! (This looks beautiful but it will take an extra few days)

**This is not an exhaustive precautionary list. Make sure if this is the first time you are using any of the mentioned chemicals, you have the help of an expert or do thorough research beforehand.

 

Part 2: Organize Your Newly Cleaned Garage (available next Wednesday 10/17/17 at 8am)

It has been a while since we’ve written about our company. For those of you that have been viewing our blog for a long time, you may already know about our company. For those of you new to us and our blog, our Construction Gear site is only one of our eight extremely successful stores.

WHO? We are an eCommerce company currently operating 8 stores. We have both an office team and a warehouse team that work together to quickly & efficiently get you the product you need. As a whole, we are known as Online Stores.

WHEN? We have successfully been in business since 2002!

WHAT? As mentioned we have 8 different websites. All sites offer you extremely low prices but they each have their own specialties. Construction Gear carries work wear for industries that need durability and reliable work boots, work clothes and accessories. Discount Safety Gear is your one stop shop for safety equipment. This store carries hard hats, safety glasses, ergonomics, welding equipment, respirators, hearing protection and so much more. (CG also carries these items but DSG has a larger variety.) Safety Girl is like the previous two stores but tailored for a woman. United States Flag Store is simply what it sounds like! It was our first store and continues to be our highest traffic website. We sell American flags, state flags, country flags, decorative flags, flag poles and flag accessories. The English Tea Store sells our own brand of tea plus many other popular brands. We carry all tea flavors, tea chests, tea sets, British foods and other accessories. Northline Express is the leading online supplier of fireplaces, chimney pipes, stove pipes, and wood burning stoves. Now is the best time to head over to that site since winter is coming! ToySplash is a fun water play site. We carry pool floats, inflatable pools, pool toys and beach accessories. As soon as spring hits, head over to this site to get affordable pool toys. Lastly, LightUp is our newest powerhouse. As you can tell, this store is all about lighting. We carry LED tubes, panels, bulbs and everything you need to “light up” your house or business.

WHERE? Our main warehouse & office is located in New Stanton, Pennsylvania. We receive and ship out of this location. But, we just recently opened two more warehouses to better serve our customers. They are located in Pennsylvania & Nevada.

Here at Construction Gear we sell you products at ultimate low prices. When it comes to work boots, they can break the bank especially with all the requirements needed to be met in the work place. Therefore, we have made our own brand to satisfy the requirements but at half the price! So far we have successfully introduced safety glasses, boots, clothing, hard hats and more to the work force.

Now that fall & winter are approaching, we knew insulated boots were a must. So we are introducing our NEW Pioneer II Insulated Logger Boots. To show you the comparison…we’re going to place them side by side with Carolina Insulated Boots.

At half the price, this boot is definitely worth it. Now you can spend more money on something you enjoy doing in the fall/winter instead of work wear!
