The holidays are quickly approaching and with them comes all the anxieties of finding the perfect gifts. It can be hard to figure out what sort of present to get loved ones whose job you’re not too familiar with, especially in something like construction. How do you pick gifts for your favorite tech-savvy construction professional?
We’ve got you covered with a list of some great tech related gadgets to check out, so you don’t have to buy your special someone a hammer or tool belt for the hundredth time!
One thing that all construction workers are conscious of is their hearing. Working construction is not only a physically intensive job, but often a noisy one. ISOtunes earplugs are great because they not only function as traditional Bluetooth headphones so you can listen to music or podcasts, but they also utilize advanced, heat-activated memory foam technology to expand in the ear, providing a great reduction in outside noise. On top of that, the battery will last the whole workday and they are sweat and water resistant.
There’s nothing worse than a worker’s vehicle or equipment dying while out at construction site. Cobra offers a variety of portable jumper packs — all waterproof and ready for a variety of weather conditions — that can get equipment up and running again. The portable device comes with detachable heavy-duty jumper cables, an emergency flashlight, and multiple USB ports. When this little guy isn’t jumping equipment, it can be charging portable devices like phones and tablets, so you never run out of battery.
When the job calls for a late-night assignment at the construction site, getting the proper lighting is always a struggle. OTYTY offers some great, affordable, work lights that are rechargeable and portable. Offering a rugged and waterproof design in addition to bright LED bulbs with three modes (Full brightness, low brightness, and flashing) these are perfect gifts for any person who is working into the night.
Construction workers not only face long hours outside, but also a plethora of adverse weather conditions, especially the cold. Milwaukee Tool’s offers a great line of heated jackets that can keep workers warm even in the coldest conditions. The jacket is heated in both the chest and back, has a rechargeable battery, and offers a sleek design that workers can wear underneath any safety attire that’s required for the job site.
As the construction industry continues to adopt mobile technologies like tablets into its everyday practices, protecting these devices will save businesses and workers a lot of headaches. Runner Mobile Tech Gear offers a wide array of work belts coupled with case to keep tablets protected and easily accessible while out in the field. We really like their “Heavy Duty Tablet Belt” that offers a sturdy belt with a heavy-duty belt clip and security cord that prevents tablets from dropping.
The holidays are stressful enough to get through even without thinking about gifts. Gifts for construction can be more than traditional tools if you're willing to think a little outside the box and explore some cool new technology. We hope some of these ideas will help you out in checking off some presents from your shopping list.Post Comment
