Here at JJ Roofing Supplies, we don’t just supply the materials, tiles, and tools needed to renovate or construct fantastic roofs, we also supply all the appropriate safety wear needed to undergo projects as safely as possible. From gloves and masks to trousers and boots, we stock safety wear from a wide range of different manufacturers.
Whether you’re working in cold weather conditions or need to protect your hands against nails and screws while also handling various roofing materials safely, gloves are a roofer’s best friend.
Gloves for roofing offer protection against irritated skin and roughness while also providing padding for sharp-edged roof tiles.
Many gloves will also feature extra grip to make it as easy to possible to handle tiles while you’re up on the roof. Gloves are available in Latex, fingerless, or a tougher material that is part-leather. There are also glove and hat combination packages for cold weather roofing.
If you’re wearing safety gloves, you should also have a good pair of safety boots. Steel-capped boots can be the difference between a gentle bump and a lot of pain. You’ll also need a pair with a lot of grip if you’re working on a rooftop. At JJ Roofing Supplies we stock boots from leading safety wear manufacturer DeWalt.
Protection isn’t just about boots and gloves. Masks are also essential if you are working with materials that produce a lot of dust, and particularly if you are working with fibre-glass materials. Dust masks are extremely cheap and can make a huge difference to your general health and they’re often worth wearing even if you’re not creating a large amount of dust.
General working clothing - such as trousers and jackets - are also a good choice if you’re going to be undertaking work in the murky British winter. We stock top manufacturer Dickies work clothes, including work trousers, fleeces, and jackets. The trousers come with padded knees and sizable pockets and work well alongside a tool pouch.
A successful roofing job requires a lot of different tools, such as hammers, nails, and a variety of other niche tools depending on the type of project you’re working on. Keeping hold of everything you need is tricky while you’re on a roof, which is why we recommended a tool pouch with plenty of pockets to hold the essentials.
We also supply a range of other Safety Wear accessories, such as working hand cream for damaged hands or mini-gel knee pads that can be worn underneath any work trousers.
All products on the JJ Roofing Supplies website can be ordered with fast UK delivery and at an excellent price. For any further questions or to ask for advice on the right tools or equipment for various roofing jobs, you can talk to one of our advisers over the phone or in-store.
