In this Roofing Insights product review, Dmitry Lipinskiy tries out SteepGear’s new safety shorts.
When you’re on a roof, safety is priority number one. Even veteran roofers and adjusters make mistakes. Sometimes, these mistakes have tragic consequences.
SteepGear founder Damon Hawkins is no stranger to tragedy: his father, a roofer, passed away after falling from a roof. Safety equipment can fail, and even with safety measures in place, falls still account for over 1/3 of all construction related deaths.
Damon founded SteepGear to develop an intuitive and comfortable (and stylish!) tool to improve rooftop safety. SteepGear safety equipment is designed to stop falls from becoming deadly by increasing friction, giving roofers and adjusters extra security in case of slips. The safety shorts make sure slips don’t turn deadly — but can they pass Dmitry’s safety test?
