Anniversary

Its 2019 and we are celebrating! 20 Years!

January 14, 2019 under News Article

Its 2019 and this marks a very special milestone for Vision Safe, as we’ve now been open for business for 20 years.

Our industry is a challenging one at times, especially for SME’s (Small to Medium Enterprises) – so we are very proud of this achievement, to be able to say we are 20 years old in a highly competitive market.

First started in late 1998 by Dean Roberts, the company originally operated as a sole trader business from a home office in the spare room of the house. Within the first year an extra staff member was employed, Kimberley Roberts who is now the Vision Safe General Manager and looks after Newcastle Hats manufacturing operations. Moving into a purpose built shed in 2000 and later a purpose built warehouse in Mundaring in 2009, Vision Safe cemented its place as a reputable PPE supplier in the Australian market with a diverse range of products. Fast forward to 2019 and we have offices in 3 countries with 28 staff all around Australia and world, and operating out of multiple custom built premises – things certainly have changed.

Product range expansion and diversity has certainly increased over the years, starting off with just safety eyewear we now both import and manufacture a wide range of products from cylinder restraint systems (Bottlechock) to First Aid Equipment (First Aid Works) and authentic Aussie Made headwear (Newcastle Hats).

Among some of the main product lines, we have been proudly supplying safety products like Glove Guard Glove Clips, Safety Knives from The Safety Knife Co, Guardsman Gloves for workwear gloves, UVeto Australia supplying custom sun protection products including hats and more, Derma Guard barrier cream, and we represent ACOT500 Safety lighting for the mining, government and commercial sector. Not to mention the Newcastle Hats range of wide brimmed hats and the First Aid Works range of first aid kits!

There have been a lot of milestones along the way, and we would like to thank our loyal customers and supporters – both old and new. A business which has now expanded from Australia, into New Zealand, the United Kingdom and United States has allowed us to build lifelong friendships and relationships with suppliers, customers and trade partners.

See the timeline below to track our path from 1998/1999 until today…

We will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary over the course of 2019 with a range of initiatives and special offers, as a way of expressing our appreciation to our suppliers and customers. Watch this space and sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date.

Here is to the future and at least another 20 years!

The VISIONSafe team!

Whip Aerials – May 2018 Product of the Month

May 1, 2018 under News Article

Does your vehicle have a Whip Aerial installed? If you work on a mine site or just enjoy going off the beaten track, the Vision Safe team believe a mine flag is one of the essential vehicle safety items everyone should have. They can also be installed as a buggy flag to any ATV or Quad Bike for farm and off-road recreational use. Sturdy fibreglass construction provides overall strength for the pole section of the whip aerial, and the heavy duty spring mount allows the flag to move and bend safely without fracture or breakage.

Whip Aerials and mine flags are available in 3 different versions, in lengths ranging from 1.2 to 2.4m.

The Premium LED Whip Aerial comes with a replaceable LED light (available in a range of colours) mounted at the top and is available in 2 lengths – 1.2m (WAP58-1.2m) or 1.8m  (WAP58-1.8m). Both sizes of Premium LED Whip Aerial come as standard with a heavy duty spring mount, 30cm cable to connect the 8 LED light on the tip of the aerial and a Hi Vis Orange Nylon Mesh Flag with a Silver Reflective cross. The 1.8m size is segmented for ease of storage when not in use, and a 1.2m powered extension rod is also available.

The LED Whip aerial comes with an fixed top mounted 12 Red LED light and is available in 2 non-segmented lengths – 1.2m (WAP45-1.2m) or 1.8m (WAP45-1.8m). Both come mounted on a heavy duty spring mount with a 30cm wire to connect the integrated light and a Hi Vis Orange Nylon Mesh Flag with a Silver Reflective cross.

The non-powered Whip aerials are available in 3 lengths – 1.2m (WAN-1.2m), 1.8m (WAN-1.8m) and 2.4m (WAN-2.4m). The 1.8m and 2.4m versions are segmented for easy storage.  All non-powered versions include a quick release coupling, heavy duty spring mount and a Hi Vis Orange Nylon Mesh Flag with a Silver Reflective cross. A 1.2m non-powered extension rod to provide additional height is available for the segmented aerials.

Vision Safe also carries a range of accessories and spare parts to customise your aerial to suit requirements.
