Garden Fencing - Ronseal Fencelife

Fence panels and garden sheds need all year round protection from the elements. Giving the garden fencing a coat of Ronseal Fencelife will improve the look of the fence panels and provide up to 5 years of colour and protection. It is fade resistant and quick drying, touch dry in 1 - 2 hours. The current formula is wax enriched which improves the waterproofing protection and ensures batter protection.

The Ronseal Fencelife is uniquely formulated and can be sprayed or painted on to garden fencing, sheds and trellis. When used with the Power Sprayer, the Fencelife can be applied in half the time it would normally take to paint. Even easier to use than ever before, stir thoroughly, clip on the Power Sprayer, turn on and start spraying. To obtain the best finish, hold the nozzle approx 23cm or 9 inches away gram the garden fencing and squeeze the trigger to start spraying.

Garden fencing, sheds and trellis all have one thing, if not looked after, they will start to rot or look shabby. Taking the time apply a protective finish will prolong its life and enhance the look of the fencing or shed. Quite often, you will find that a new garden fence is erected but due to differences between neighbours, only one side of the fence receives the protection, or the neighbours disagree with the colour they would like. Ronseal have the answer to this issue and have released the Ronseal Fencelife in 5 different colours, Medium Oak, Dark Oak, Forest Green, Red Cedar and Harvest Gold.

Marshalltown Plastering Trowels

Marshalltown plastering trowels come in a large variety of sizes ranging from 8" up to 20" and are available in several finishes in both new and pre-worn, carbon steel and stainless steel.

What is pre-worn?  A new non pre-worn trowel has sharp edges and a flat base which can often leave marks in the plaster.  Marshalltown pre-worn trowels have been attached to a dedicated machine which removes the sharp edges and grinds the bottom of the trowel making it ready for day to day use.

Do I buy a carbon steel trowel or a stainless steel trowel? Carbon steel trowels tend to be slightly more flexible but require better looking after as carbon steel can often rust if not cleaned and dried after use. Stainless steel by its nature does not rust but is not quite a flexible as the carbon steel models.

Another option you have available when buying Marshalltown plastering trowels is the choice of handle. These are available in either Durasoft or Wooden. The wooden handle is firm and rigid and has for years been the most popular choice until the newer Durasoft handle came along. These Durasoft handles are softer and more comfortable in the hand.

Apache Knee Pads for Work Trousers

Apache knee pads are essential if you spend any time kneeling down while working. They spread the weigh of the knee over a larger, softer area making it more comfortable. The knee pads are made from 100% Polyethylene and are constructed into adjoining segments which allow the material to easily bend with the knee.

The Apache work trousers have a Velcro fastening, top loading pocket in to which the knee pads are placed. When the knee bends, the material can often bunch up behind the knee causing discomfort, the Apache trousers have a wider fit allowing for this when the knee pads are fitted.

Apache Work Trousers - Affordable Workwear

Apache Work Trousers have been designed with the trades person in mind. They are made from 300 gram poly cotton and are strong and durable. Both the knees and holster pockets are reinforced with Cordura.  One failing with other workwear trousers is how tight the leg material becomes when kneeling down, Apache have solved this by giving the legs a wider fitting therefore making them more comfortable for working in.

When it comes to work trousers, pockets are essential and the Apache range are no different. On the front there are two easy to reach, tuck-away holster pockets. If not required, they can be tucked back into the trousers. To complement the front pockets, there are also two large bellow pockets at the rear with press stud fasteners.  On the thigh is a utility pocket giving immediate access to tape measures or small tools. As more and more people carry mobile phone, there is a pocket designed specially for this and it takes the larger, more modern mobile phones. A pen / pencil pocket is also provided for easy and quick access.

As with most work trousers, knee pads can be fitted in to specially designed top loading pockets and secured with Velcro fastenings. Even with the knee pads fitted, due to the width of the leg, the Apache trousers are more comfortable when kneeling or constantly bending the leg.

The Apache work trousers are available in waist sizes of 30" - 42" and leg lengths of 31" and 33".  To view more details or to purchase the work trousers, visit:
