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.

Driveway Rejuvenation: Maintenance Tips to Spruce up Your Front Drive

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 8:01:55 PM Australia/Melbourne

A well-paved driveway isn’t just a parking space or an entryway into your home. Driveways influence the first impressions of your guests and people who pass by your house. They add visual interest, function and value to any property. However, once they're installed, they are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning and maintenance.

No driveway paving material, especially concrete, is maintenance-free. Driveways are prone to dirt, grease and grime build-up which can be unsightly. Over time, driveways are also susceptible to cracking due to changes in temperature and moisture. If these cracks are allowed to develop further, the driveway will require costly repairs or even an overhaul to replace the damaged flooring.

If your driveway has suffered stains and cracks, here are ideas to extend your driveway's life and appeal well into the future.

Monday, January 28, 2019 4:08:11 PM Australia/Melbourne

Exposed aggregate concrete was not originally used for decorative purposes but is now widely used for its visual appeal. Exposed aggregate concrete is a great look for your driveways, patios and pathways. Exposed aggregate concrete, or simply aggregate concrete, provides a colourful option for consumers who wish to achieve some level of variety from the usual black or grey appearance of concrete. This kind of finish is achieved by laying the premixed concrete and stripping the top layer in order to expose the aggregates. Aggregate concrete consists of sand, quartz and other types of stones that provide a wide assortment of colours and textures.

Foolproof Ways to Prevent Concrete Cracks

Monday, January 21, 2019 10:52:53 AM Australia/Melbourne

Despite being a reliable, durable and economical construction material, concrete is still susceptible to various types of damage, one of the most common being concrete cracks. Cracks happen for different reasons, but with the right preventative measures, you can protect the integrity of your working area.

Why Does Concrete Crack?

One of the common causes of concrete cracks is overloading, so before driving on your concrete, be aware of its weight capacity. If concrete bears too much weight, it can break the concrete slab or move the soil underneath the slab and cause erosion, which leads to settlement cracks.

Remember that not all types of soil are ideal for working with concrete. The soil must be compact and free of any moisture and tree roots that can cause erosion.
