Hadleigh Castings

Hadleigh castings are a leading UK aluminium foundry, who serve industries such as Aerospace, Automotive, Rail, Marine, Motorcycle, Defence, Life Sciences, Communications, Environmental and Test and Measurement.

Their requirement was for a garment that could withstand the challenging temperatures in their environment and that gave added frontal protection for their foundry workers.  They could not find a suitable ‘off the shelf’ solution on the market and approached Tusker Industrial Safety to design and manufacture a solution that met their needs.

We designed and manufactured special chaps, made with our chrome leather, which incorporated an additional front panel. This gave double thickness front protection from the intense temperatures in the foundry environment.  We also added additional velcro straps to the back of the chaps to ensure that the garment had increased tensity to the thigh.
