Looking ahead to 2019

Looking ahead to 2019

It’s set to be a big year for Safety Technology, looking ahead to 2019 we have a lot in store for everyone.

With the year ahead of us we’re looking ahead to 2019 and what’s in store for STL as we launch new products, initiatives and continue to take the USA by storm. The STL team are gearing up for some more challenges and we’d like you to tell us what we can support in 2019. Here are the highlights of what’s coming up so far, of course it’s only January so we’ll make sure we keep you up to date in our monthly newsletter and blog.


New product launches, bags and kits

We’ve started 2019 by launching a comprehensive range of bags and kits. This is something our customers have been asking for and we believe the new range builds on the already impressive products available from STL. You can view the full range here.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Incorporates rope attachment cowstail and smooth running rope grab providing fall protection when hands free working

  • Large pear shaped carabiner for easy attachment to tower sections
