Dickies Successful Exhibit at SPE Offshore Europe 2015

Dickies, the internationally renowned workwear brand, enjoyed a successful show exhibiting some of its fantastic new products for 2015 at SPE Offshore Europe on the 8th to 11th September.

SPE Offshore Europe is the largest upstream oil and gas event outside North America, and over the past 40 years this event has built up a proud heritage and unrivalled platform for the industry to meet, discuss and debate the latest issues within Europe and beyond.

Employing the latest developments in fabric technology and manufacturing techniques, Dickies’ high performance workwear is suited for even the harshest working environments.

Jim Hanna, International Business Development Manager said: “We had a lot of interest during the Exhibition from all around the globe with customers looking for different types of fabrics, weights and solutions to often bespoke challenges. Dickies long history and expertise allows us to tailor a perfect solution for their needs both from a safety and a reduced cost benefit perspective.”Jim Hanna, International Business Development Manager, demonstrating the benefits of the new range of Impact gloves, created by KONG®

Dickies has joined forces with KONG® to develop an exclusive new range of Impact gloves. These gloves are built on the proven expertise of the KONG® chassis. Proudly branded Dickies® they cover jobs both “on” and “off” the drillhead: from rigger gloves with a Duraclad® rope channel that offer 8x durability where the riggers need it most, to Deck Hand Cut 5 glove that can withstand the most extreme rigours.

Dickies have also recently added a new range of CE Marked safety glasses for 2015.
The new Dickies Pyrovatex coverall was at the show, which offers an FR, treated cotton, to provide maximum heat and flame protection. An extended collar offers extra protection and coverage around the throat and neck area, whilst the reflective tape (also FR) provides visibility in low light working conditions. There are side access pockets allowing you to reach your clothing underneath and access to your pockets etc.

Another popular new item was the new Fallx coverall. Fallx is a new concept incorporating fall protection with regular coveralls. This patented award winning design combines complete fall protection and the versatility of regular coveralls.  As well as being practical, lightweight and extremely comfortable compared to a traditional harness, Fallx can provide a solution to issues of compliance, safety and comfort.  It is also suitable for use as a rescue harness and is used in many applications from working at height, confine spaces or ERT teams where its ability to be donned quickly provides critical extra seconds.  Fallx is an industry first.
