YEOVIL, England, October 30, 2010 - Tradesmen depend on their workwear and personal protective equipment for
a professional appearance, a safe working environment and protection from the
Great British weather, so the launch of the new 'Geared Up' catalogue is
welcome news, offering industry-leading access to an extensive range of big
name brands at affordable prices.

With 132 pages packed full of over 1,300 products, the new 'Geared Up'
catalogue is dedicated to workwear and PPE that works as hard as its
customers do. It boasts key ranges of trousers, fleeces, jackets,
high-visibility products, footwear and safety gear, from renowned brands
including CAT, Snickers, Scruffs, DeWalt and Helly Hansen. The catalogue
essentially has everything the tradesman needs to look professional, feel
comfortable and stay protected all year round.

Work-wardrobe essentials that no professional tradesman or serious DIY-er
should be without include stylish Snickers trousers with multiple pockets,
reinforced knees and Twisted Leg(TM) design for ultimate durability,
practicality and working comfort. Water resistant Helly Hansen Barcelona
jackets, with articulated sleeves for improved movement, and lightweight
DeWalt Apprentice safety boots, available in sizes 3 through to 12, are also
available from the new and improved catalogue.

With competitive pricing, great offers and a handy sizing guide, getting
'Geared Up' has never been easier, and when it comes to getting your hands on
this gear the trade can count on equally great service. Free next day
delivery is available on orders over GBP50 through or
over the phone, and the range can also be purchased directly from Screwfix
branches around the country.

Being able to pick up the latest PPE in local branches ensures that stock
is available on the same day, and in the unlikely event that the selected
line is unavailable, Screwfix will aim to deliver the products within 24

our customers on site and at home. We wanted to go that extra mile to offer a
