How To Maintain Your Cordless Power Tools

Tuesday, April 6, 2021 1:45:08 PM Australia/Melbourne

Power tools are some of the most important equipment you will need to make your construction or renovation jobs possible. At Form Direct, you can buy cordless power tools online that are resilient to long-term use however, even the best quality tools require maintenance to protect their longevity. The following information will assist you with easy habits that you can apply to maintain your cordless power tools. 

 

Where To Store Your Tools 

Not storing your power tools in a storage case can expose them to elements that can leave them severely damaged. It’s important to keep your tools in a dry place. Moist conditions can cause water to get into the equipment causing rust. Moisture can also create corrosion around the metal parts of the tool. 

 

Oiling 

One of the most important parts of maintaining your power tools is oiling. The one thing that your drill will need to keep functioning is to have lubrication. Follow the manual that comes with your cordless drill on the best oil to use. 

 

Keep The Battery Clean 

It’s important to keep the battery clean from debris as this can cause issues when it comes to using the device and charging it. Be aware of venting to allow for cooling and keep up regular cleaning of the batteries. 

 

Charge The Batteries At The Right Time 

Most people make the mistake of letting the batteries of their power tools drain down instead of charging them when they lose power. By keeping them charged you will avoid problems if the battery becomes too cold to charge. 

 

Keep The Battery Warm 

When the weather gets cooler problems can occur caused by the cold temperature. When working outside during the colder months, there are several things you can do to keep the batteries warm. When you’re not using the tools remove the battery and store in a warm place to prevent them from getting cold.

Protective Eyewear For Your Worksite

Thursday, February 18, 2021 8:24:49 PM Australia/Melbourne

At Form Direct, we do more than provide the best work safety boots. We also provide a range of personal protective equipment including eye safety protection. 

Work-related injuries can occur in a range of workplaces, particularly on construction sites. Thankfully, these injuries are preventable, provided your employees are given the correct eyewear. Choosing the safest eyewear can be challenging particularly when you’re unsure what the imperative requirements are. We are the leaders when it comes to supplying PPE and we’re here to assist you to find the best eyewear for your work. 

Understand The Risks On Your Worksite

Each workplace has hazards. It’s important to understand the most frequent cause of eye injuries that take place on your worksite so you can determine what you need to look for when it comes to protective eye safety. 

Some of the most common eye injuries occur from machines and mechanical tools. These include sanding equipment that creates unseen particles that can scratch the cornea if it comes into contact with the eye. If this machinery is used at your workplace it’s important to consider eyewear that covers the whole eye to prevent scratches and damages. Other dangers include welding, which can create intense heat radiation that obstructs their vision and ability to see clearly. Contact with gases and liquids can also create irritation for the eyes and can cause long term problems in the future if their eyes are not protected. Form Direct carries different types of safety glasses so you can choose a design that is most suitable for your worksites. From basic eye protection to high-impact lenses, we have the safety gear for you.

Understand The Different Types Of Lenses Available

At Form Direct our safety glasses are made with lightweight polycarbonate, the frames are available in two sizes: universal and narrow. Our glasses are designed to be worn for all-day wear and the frames ensure ultimate comfort for the wearer. These safety glasses are equipped with scratch-resistant lenses that offer UV protection. Other types provide anti-fog and chemical resistance properties for enhanced visibility and protection. The protective eyewear we carry offers different safety features, although all provide good basic protection. The basic pair provides an effective barrier from dust and water. The medium to high impact lenses offer optical clarity even in low visibility worksites. Additionally, the lenses have been treated for UV and heat exposure. For heat-related tasks, we recommend a tinted lens to protect the wearer from intense radiation. This is ideal especially for all heat applications as well as working outdoors. Visit our eye protection page online to view our full range of safety glasses.

Ensuring your employees have the best protective eyewear will not only keep them safe, but it will also allow your team to remain productive and focused on the work at hand. Form Direct provides the best range of safety glasses available to purchase online.

Why You Should Purchase Quality Safety Boots

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 6:06:20 PM Australia/Melbourne

One of the best ways to increase your safety on the worksite is with the correct footwear. With so many different options of boots available on the market today it can be difficult to know which ones to purchase. Form Direct stocks the best safety boots Australia has to offer. With our quality range of work safety boots, you can make sure your workers will be safe, protected and comfortable on the worksite. Anyone who is working with heavy machinery, hazardous items, chemicals or wet flooring should wear the appropriate safety shoes to ensure no accidents happen. 

At Form Direct, our selection of boots are highly durable and long-lasting that will stand the test of time even on the toughest sites. Not only are these boots safe, but they’re also ergonomically designed for the wearer’s comfort. These boots feature breathable lining for regular airflow during the day. They’re also fitted with a rubber sole that is shock absorbent protecting your feet from pressure and provides the best level of support to prevent any injuries. 

Here are the reasons why it’s important to purchase protective safety boots for those working onsite.

Prevents Falls 

Each pair of Form Direct safety boots come with slip-resistant soles. These are ideal for being used on wet or oily surfaces to minimise any risk of slipping on wet exteriors that could lead to serious injuries. 

 

Prevents Feet From Cold Weather Conditions 

Our selection of protective safety boots are made with moisture-wicking materials to keep you dry through any season in Australia. Labourers who work outdoors need to be wearing safety boots to protect their feet from wet and cold weather conditions. Keeping your feet dry will minimise the risk of becoming sick and needing time off to recover. 

 

Protect Your Feet From Hazardous Objects 

Wearing safety boots will protect your feet against hazardous objects from falling on your feet. Without these, you run the risk of nails, blades or scrap metal tearing into your feet. A pair of safety boots will also reduce the likelihood of crushed feet and broken bones occurring onsite. 

 

Provides Support To Work Efficiently

You may be worried that safety boots are uncomfortable, however, the Form Direct range is ergonomically designed with the wearer’s comfort in mind. Our boots provide comfortable padding to ensure workers can withstand the physical requirements of their job comfortably without fatigue and discomfort due to wearing incorrect shoes. Having the correct supportive footwear ensures there is no stress on your back which can often come from standing for most of the day. 

 

Wear Safety Boots To Meet The Requirements Of Work Safe

Wearing protective safety wear means you will meet the requirements of WHS to provide a safe working environment. As not all industries can remove hazards from their workplace you can protect yourself to minimise possible threats.

Why Steel Formwork Is the Most Suitable for Large Construction Projects

Tuesday, April 28, 2020 7:21:01 AM Australia/Melbourne

Timber or steel – contractors often debate about which of the two to use for formwork.

Timber is lightweight, making it easy to handle and disassemble. It is also flexible and damaged parts are easily replaceable. On the other hand, timber framework has limited re-use because the material can shrink or expand when exposed to moisture. For this reason, many contractors opt for steel formwork that is durable and can be used for a long time. Both types of formwork are for sale but which is best for your project?

Concrete Sealers: Making Your Concrete Last Longer

Friday, March 6, 2020 7:04:49 PM Australia/Melbourne

It goes without saying that concrete is known for being one of the most commonly used construction materials. Construction builders use it as a foundation for countless buildings and footpaths. It costs less than other materials such as steel, and it’s easy to mix.

If constructed properly, concrete is a durable material. That does not mean that it is impervious to damage from the elements and general wear or tear. While it has the potential to last for years, it can quickly corrode or crack without the proper protection.
