Quality Safety Vests for Summertime Road Work

What makes a Safety Vest Class 2 or Class 3?

Gear up for summer with a new Safety Vest from EngineerSupply! Class II Safety Vests are designed for workers who need greater visibility in poor weather conditions, and who are exposed to roadways with traffic that exceeds 25 miles per hour. Class II Safety Vests are ideal for railway workers, school crossing guards, parking and toll gate personnel, airport ground crews and law enforcement personnel directing traffic. According to ANSI standards, class II vests must have 775 square inches of background material, and 201 square inches of reflective material. Class III vests provide the highest level of visibility and are designed for workers exposed to high-risk environments and traffic exceeding 50 miles per hour. Class III vests have sleeves and are made for all roadway construction personnel and vehicle operators, utility workers, survey crews, emergency responders, railway workers and accident site investigators. ANSI requirements also state that class III vests have 1240 square inches of background material and 310 square inches of reflective material.

Drawing Holders

Get organized and look more professional with a drawing holder. Another great tip or idea is to provide your client with a drawing holder when the job is complete!

The best blueprint storage box we have seen yet

The Manager 25 Blueprint Storage Box is the best blueprint storage box we've seen yet. Its very sturdy and will last a long time and can be reused over and over as projects come and go. Being 25 inches deep means it has 1 inch play for rolled drawings that are 24 inches long. A popular drawing size is the 24" x 36" and if rolled its 24" long. The Manager 25 is perfect for these size drawings and it includes a grid or index that helps you find drawings quickly. Some users will buy multiple boxes and store each project in each box then archive the box when the project is complete. If you have larger drawings than 24 x 36 check out the Manager 37 Blueprint Storage Box as its 37 inches deep.

What is a Sirvayur?

A Sirvayur is something that grubs around in the woods looking for little sticks and stones. When he finds them he does some kind of weerd dance around thern with a funny-looking 3-leg crutch wich he leans on and looks at. When he don't find them he walks around all day like he's lost. Sometimes you see them squashed by cars along rodes, espeshelly in the sumer when all th other bugs are out. A Sirvayur has one big eye and one littel eye like popeye. He is stooped over from being bent all the time. His face looks like old lether. He cusses terribul. He cant' reed because he mesures between things and then puts down a number in a littel book wich is difrint than wat his littel map says. He always mesures to a stick or stone, stops neer it, and puts in another stick or stone. He is not too brite because he is always markeing marks on side-walks and rodes to find his way home. His pants are allways tore from rock salt and his shoes look like they was made of mud. People stare at him, dogs chase him and he always looks wore out. I don't know why anyone wants to be a Sirvayur.
