Today, we are happy to announce that Safeopedia readers can look forward to new and exciting content from our latest contributor, Radians Safety!

Company History

In 1997, Radians was founded in Memphis, Tennessee, with the introduction of one safety product for the sporting goods market. That first product, known as "The Radians AV", was a combination audio-visual protection product that awarded the company its first U.S. patent on July 14, 1998.

In 1999, the company realized new opportunities to expand, became a member of the National Safety Council and began launching products for the industrial safety market. The following year, Radians joined the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association, a not-for-profit educational trade association comprised of distributors, manufacturers, and representative agents of light construction, industrial, and related products.

Partnerships with Leading Brands

Over the years, Radians developed relationships with leading brands of safety products in order to offer their growing base of customers a variety of quality options. The company believes style and comfort of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can actually help facilitate workplace compliance. When end-users wear their safety products well, they wear them consistently and appropriately, and as a result they stay well themselves. That's why Radians has partnered with leading brands including DeWALT, Black & Decker, Mossy Oak, and Realtree to provide customers with safety gear that is stylish, functional, and comfortable, all while meeting important ANSI standards.

Quality Assurance

Radians is proud to be among the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)'s registered and certified members. The ISO 9001:2008 specifies that an organization must have a quality management system and be able to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet applicable statutory and regulatory requirements and customer standards. Radians aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the ISO system, including implementing processes for continual improvement and the assurance of conformity to customer, statutory, and regulatory requirements.

Today, Radians offers a comprehensive line of safety products with over 110 styles of eyewear, high visibility apparel, hand protection, hearing protection, rainwear, cooling/warming products, eyewash stations and lens cleaning accessories. They also offer fast and economical custom imprinting and embroidery services.

Award-Winning Standards and Continued Expansion

The company has received numerous awards for sales and service. In 2015, Radians was honored with the Sphere 1 Gold Award for Preferred Supplier Outstanding Sales, the SMG Peak Performer Award for sales growth, and the ISHN Reader’s Choice Awards in the apparel, high visibility category with the SV55 Heavy Woven Two-Tone Engineer Vest. That same year Radians broke ground on the new headquarters expansion which will result in a 200,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters complex with room for future expansion.

Recently, Radians launched the company's RADLINK Distributor Website. Distributors now have total access to order online, review past orders, and download marketing materials. The web site also highlights detailed milestones of growth along Radians' path to becoming an industry leader, including several patents, many awards, licensing with major industry partners, and facility expansion to support becoming a global supplier.

Radians has added nine new gloves to protect hands at work. The new line includes protective gloves with dexterity, cut protection, abrasion resistance and thermal plastic rubber (TPR) overlays for impact protection.

“With Radians developments in glove technology to enhance dexterity, comfort and safety, users will be able to select the correct gloves, based on their job applications and hand injuries will decrease,” said Radians President, Bill England.  “Hand protection is one of Radians’ fastest growing product categories because we offer a quality product line with great features. Our product managers and safety specialists are equipped with the expertise and knowledge to help our customers choose the right glove for the application.”

Radians expanded line includes:

 

  • Three new CE Cut 3 gloves in 13 gauge (RWG534), 15 gauge (RWG536), and 18 gauge (RWG533)

  • Four general purpose coated gloves (RWG14, RWG15, RWG16) one of which is a two-ply winter coated glove (RWG17)

  • One CE Cut 5 glove with Thermal Plastic Rubber (TPR) overlays for impact-resistant protection (RWG603)

  • One CE Cut 5 glove with TPR overlays for impact-resistant protection and a 7 gauge acrylic terry liner for warmth in cold conditions (RWG604)

Radians Foam Earplug Dispensers

December 21, 2015, Posted in News

Radians Foam Earplug DispensersRadians has just launched new patent-pending Disposable Foam Earplug Dispensers that are available with two of their popular Made in the USA foam plugs, the Resistor and Detour.

These innovative dispensers are a game-changer for workplace safety because they have several patented design features which make the dispenser easy to use, easy to refill, and easy on the environment too.

The reusable dispenser, which comes with a space-saving, slim vertical dispenser box, is easy to mount and refill. Engineered with a variable mounting bracket, the dispenser is easily installed on peg board, slat wall, wire cages, warehouse racks, and drywall, which means you can easily control placement in high traffic areas.

To refill, simply remove the empty box and refill with the replacement dispenser box, which comes in quantities of either 250 or 500 foam earplugs.

The patented flexible structure of the vertical box uses less material than typical dispensers in the marketplace, making Radians’ new dispenser extremely economical and gentler on the environment than traditional plastic dispensers. The patented 360° bi-directional rotating funnel provides workers with quick and easy access to the earplugs, which always helps to increase worker compliancy.

The dispensers are available in their uncorded Made in the USA Resistor plug (PDFP70) and their Detour plug (PDFP30). Both styles of disposable foam plugs have a 32NRR.

Radians invests in automation to deliver higher levels of customer service and satisfaction

June 30, 2014, Posted in News


Radians, Inc., a leader in the personal protective equipment industry, has made a significant capital investment in warehouse automation at their Memphis headquarters.

Radians' new order fulfillment system, or pick module, from Integrated Solutions will be fully operational by July. Once completed, the automated system will become the central hub of their warehouse operations, expediting the pick and ship process for optimum product flow.

According to Radians’ President, Bill England, “our recent investment in automation is Radians’ largest equipment purchase in the company’s history. The new system will improve the speed and accuracy of order fulfillment, which always leads to higher levels of customer service and satisfaction.”

The automated system uses PathGuide software which provides real time control to get instant information about warehouse material movement and inventory status. This will enhance Radians’ ability to expedite same-day orders more efficiently than ever and will also reduce errors in shortages and overages to one in 5,000.

According to Bobbie Espitia, Radians’ Director of Supply Chain Management, “We are excited how our capital investment in automation will improve order accuracy, lower fulfillment costs, and expedite the order-fulfillment process. All of these capabilities result in making Radians a better supply chain partner to our customers.”

The benefits of automation will not only enhance customer satisfaction, it will also positively affect employee satisfaction and morale because the ergonomic design of the pick module combined with the space optimization will reduce employee fatigue and stress.

Radians® is a Memphis, TN-based manufacturer of quality safety glasses, including their premium Crossfire® line, high visibility clothing, hearing protection, performance gloves, cooling products and footwear. Radians has partnered with highly respected companies including DEWALT®, BLACK & DECKER®, Smith & Wesson®, Bone Collector™, and Remington® to provide high performance personal protection products.
