Product Feature: New Wooster Gold Edge Paint Brush

Following the great success of the Wooster Silver Tip brush the Wooster Brush Company have developed and launched their new premium range ‘Gold Edge’ paint brushes. This range is a result of feedback from customers that desire for a brush with increased rigidity. The Gold Edge is a direct result of that feedback and we are sure customers will be impressed.

Utilizing a filament blend of 100% chemically tipped polyester means that Gold Edge paintbrushes are able to offer super-smooth finishing capabilities. They are built with added firmness which allows them to push paint which further increases productivity and effectiveness.

Gold Edge enters the paint applicator market as one of Wooster’s largest lines. It includes a total of 22 unique brushes that include angle sash, thin angle sash, semi-oval angle sash, flat sash, varnish and wall styles. Watch this space for these varieties coming out. This is the first Wooster professional paintbrush line to include the new semi-oval angle sash style in its launch.

Ensuring Electrical Safety on Work Sites with Lifeguard RCD Power Outlets

Lifeguard Portable Power Outlets

Ensure your work sites meet the electrical safety requirements based on the AS/NZS 2013 standard.

When used on a work site your electrical extension cords connected to power tools require the use of a Residual Current Device (RCD) or an Isolating Transformer. Both the power tools and the RCDs must be tested and tagged. If the RCD trips it is a sign of a fault. Before using the system again you will need to check the system before resetting it.

Items intended to be protected by an RCD include the following:

  • Hand-held power tools such as snaders, saws, drills and grinders
  • Electric lawnmowers
  • Vacuum cleaners
  • Extension cords

Our Lifeguard RCD Power Outlets comply to the AS/NZS 3012 and is an approved Residual Current Device (RCD). See here for more info.
