Wet Weather Workwear from OX
Now that summer is over and autumn is here, those who work outdoors have to be prepared to deal with wet weather. As part of our extensive collection of workwear, Greengates builders merchants Accrington is proud to supply a wide range of clothing and footwear designed and developed by leading brand OX. This edition of our blog showcases three essential items from that collection.
OX (or OX Tools, to give the company its full name), was established in 1974 in Australia. Through a continuous process of evolution and growth, the company has become a recognised industry-leader all over the world, producing a range of tools, workwear and safety equipment that is rightly described as 'tough, dynamic and dependable'.

The range of OX safety workwear available from Greengates, your local builders merchant, includes:
OX Waterproof Rain Suit
This versatile suit comprises a jacket and a pair of over-trousers, both of which are fabricated from tough, durable and hard-wearing PVC to provide total protection from those inevitable autumn showers. The jacket, which fastens securely with a robust zipper, incorporates handy front pockets and a concealed hood, while a ventilated back and elasticated inner cuffs provide unmatched comfort. The trousers have an elasticated waist, fully-taped seams and ankles that can be easily adjusted to fit various ankle widths thanks to a studded system. Available in sizes from medium to XXL.
OX Safety Wellington Boots
Equipped with steel toe caps and midsoles, these anti-static safety wellies provide perforation resistance of a minimum of 1,100N. The boots are strongly resistant to damage from abrasion, oils and acids and also provide excellent resistance to slipping. With reinforced ankles and shins, these superlative wellingtons are uniquely channeled to maximise liquid dispersal. Available in UK sizes from 7-11.
OX Waterproof Latex Gloves
These fully-dipped gloves are of premium quality, made using the finest latex to deliver 100% water resistance along with protection from oily substances. Each pair, coloured a light blue, has been given a sandy coating to reduce the potential for slipping, making them ideal for all kinds of applications. Conforming rigidly to the demanding EN388 standard, the gloves are available in sizes 9 and 10 (large and extra-large respectively).
