      Something New is In the Air

      Something New is In the Air

      The Latest Air Filters for Post-COVID Flights

      It’s no secret that COVID-19 changed the way we travel, forever. Airplane powerhouses are more aware than ever of the need for more advanced cabin air filtration, seeing as hundreds of people are breathing the same, recycled oxygen for hours on end. With serious concerns about the coronavirus spreading throughout cabin air, the European Aviation Safety Association (EASA) recently published a safety guidance bulletin. Here are three suggestions every mechanic needs to know:

      #1: Industrial-Grade HEPA Filters

      High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters can be installed in aircrafts, but recirculation fans should “never be stopped”. These circulate cabin air in its entirety in about 2-4 minutes, capturing a minimum of 99.7% of airborne pathogens.

      #2: Avoiding Blocked Vents

      This is crucial when it comes to maximizing air flow and preventing the spread of contamination. It’s recommended that recirculation and fresh air systems be operated to exchange the entire cabin’s air volume ahead of time before passengers board.

      #3: Ending Recirculation Entirely

      While it sounds extreme, if a plane’s re-circulation system doesn’t contribute towards critical functionality in-flight, then the potential to keep SARS-Cov-2 particles stagnant will prevent them from being captured by the aircraft’s filtration system.

      Catching a flight is clearly no longer as simple as, well, catching a flight. Aircraft mechanics have their work cut out for them more than ever before. If you’re one of them, don’t make another move without our short-sleeve coverall. With comfort and breathability guaranteed, you can get the job done with confidence.

      What Every Plumber Needs to Know

      What Every Plumber Needs to Know

      3 Pro Tips for Pro Plumbers

      Pipe wrench? Check. Basin wrench? Check. Hacksaw? Check. You might think you have everything you need in your plumber’s toolbox, but if you lack these three items, your reputation could go down the drain.

      #1: Plumber’s Torch

      Your iPhone’s light isn’t enough. To effectively illuminate precise areas when sealing and soldering copper pipes for example, you need a professional plumber’s torch – a small, handheld source of light that no plumber should be without.

      #2: Goggles

      Disaster happens when we least expect it – like hot water leaks in our eyes just when we’re up close and personal. Avoid unnecessary medical bills with professional plumber’s eyewear.

      #3: Quality Coveralls

      Boost your professionalism while protecting your skin and making sure that you avoid the dreaded plumber’s crack. At Kolossus Workwear, we have the comfortable, breathable, durable, and professional short-sleeve coveralls you’ve been searching for.

      Plumbers are unsung heroes of society, and you deserve to look and feel comfortable and confident on-the-job. Shop our range of industry-leading plumber’s coveralls today to stay safe, stay cozy, and stay stylish.

      What Aircraft Maintenance Crews Need to Know

      While aviation crew vests have long been crucial in the aviation industry, safety regulations are always changing. Here are five safety vest regulation mandates you need to know if you’re an aircraft mechanic.

      1: They Need to Be Reflective

      Reflective safety vests must be worn at all times on airport ground. Anyone found without one will be fined or asked to leave. Is it worth the risk?

      2: They Must be Worn by Everyone, at All Times

      From baggage loaders to tug drivers to mechanics, anyone who works at a major airport must be wearing their reflective safety vest day and night.

      3: They Need to Comply with ANSI 107-1999 Standards

      From breathable fluorescent polyester fabric to high-visibility 2” reflective tape on the front and back, aircraft personnel can’t just wear any safety vest. They need a compliant one designed to mitigate worker hazards.

      Looking Ahead

      Safety isn’t negotiable. To stay safe and compliant on the job, choose the coverall company trusted by the best aircraft companies and mechanics in the industry.

      It’s Time to Come Clean

      It’s Time to Come Clean

      Dust-Free, Dirt-Free, Come Summer, Winter and Beyond

      PV solar panels are hailed for being relatively low-maintenance for home-owners. But with drastic weather shifts, rain, wind, bird droppings, and dust everywhere all the time, you could experience more than a dirty solar panel. Your panel’s ability to generate power could literally be compromised. Thankfully, you don’t need to fork out thousands on professional PV solar panel cleaners. Here are three simple steps to clean your PV solar panels yourself, today..

      #1: Gentle Brushing

      Start by loosening visible debris on the surface using a soft brush.

      #2: Spray Away

      Whip out the garden hose to blast away grim. Avoid high-pressure sprayers which could cause damage to your solar panel and, in turn, your investment.

      #3: Soft Cloth Wipe 

      Cover a long-handled wiper with a soft cloth to scrub those hard-to-reach corners and prevent grime from accumulating.

      Don’t forget to only work on your solar panel when it’s overcast – hot panels can really ruin your day (and your skin…) and always wear high-quality coveralls like ours here at Kolossus workwear to keep safe on the job…and on your solar panels. How are you keeping your panels clean and grime-free? We’d love to hear your own tips and tricks for safe and effective solar panel cleaning. Start a conversation below!

      Paint the Town…Solar?

      The Magic of Solar Paint

       Yes, you read that right. Otherwise known as photovoltaic paint, solar paint is being hailed worldwide as the future of solar. And what is it, you ask? It’s exactly what its name suggests – apply it to any surface, and solar paint will capture the sun’s energy and convert it into actual electricity you can use in your home or office space.

       How Does It Work?

      The paint itself is engineered with billions of light-sensitive materials which are suspended in the liquid. While the concept is still relatively new, solar paint is set to empower home-owners and businesses to leverage the potential of solar energy with fast, easy, and cheap installation.

      Why Isn’t It Mainstream Yet?

      The thing about solar paint is that its solar energy capture ranges from about 3% to around 8%. For example, solar paint with 6% efficiency means it captures around 6% of the sun’s available energy. Seeing as conventional silicon solar panels recently hit 20% efficiency, it’s clear to see that solar paint technology still has a long way to go.

      Looking Ahead

      While it’ll probably be a few months or years before solar paint reaches your home, we can already get excited and start planning for its widespread implementation. Whether you’ll be painting the house solar next year or painting your pantry this weekend, don’t make another move without Kolossus Workwear’s coveralls in your DIY arsenal. Our promise is to keep you safe on the job, so explore our range today.
