RS Components bolsters PPE work wear range

Impressive PPE range gains new products, delivering greater choice and wider capabilities to industry users


Johannesburg, South Africa, 30 November, 2017 - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has expanded its PPE clothing portfolio with the addition of more than 500 new items from its RS Pro range and over 100 garments from popular work wear brand, Snickers.


The new RS Pro high-quality range has been developed to offer maximum performance combined with maximum cost effectiveness. It includes trousers, t-shirts, polos, sweatshirts, fleeces, waistcoats, jackets, shoes, boots, gloves and hats. The full range can be seen on the website at


Snickers work wear now being stocked by RS includes three types of trousers (AllroundWork, Craftsmen and FlexiWork), three styles of glove (Power Core, Power Open and Precision Sense Essential), kneepads, polo shirts and hoodies – available in all popular sizes and some in a variety of colours.


These new garments and accessories complement the already impressive range of PPE solutions available from RS, which includes products from Dickies, Scruffs and DeWalt – some of which were either launched or expanded during 2017.


These new introductions extend and complement the existing Personal Protective Equipment and Site Safety portfolio from RS.
