Keeping Safe all Summer Long with Robic

March 18, 2013

Springtime has arrived and summer will soon follow, and for many parts of the country, that means the risky combination of outdoor sports and unpredictable weather. Things like lightning strikes and life-threatening lightening detector picdehydration can sneak up on even the most conditioned and experienced outdoor athlete. At Robic, we are big fans of taking the guesswork out of life. Therefore, it makes sense that we offer a great selection of tools that protect you and your loved ones from the unexpected.

  • ·StrikeAlert Personal Lightning Detector

Over the past twenty years, the U.S has averaged 51 annual lightning strike fatalities along with thousands of severe injuries. To keep you one step ahead of dangerous lightning, Robic offers the StrikeAlert Personal Lightning Detector. This unique handheld detector sounds an audible alarm and flashes when lightning strikes within 40 miles of your location. It can also tell you if lightning is approaching or moving away.  It is perfect way to keep you and your family safe at the pool, on the golf course, or out on the water.

  • ·HW30 Heat & Humidity Stopwatch

Recently, many parts of the country have experienced some wickedly hot and humid summers. Knowing exactly how hot and humid it really is can be a matter of life and death. The affordable and handheld HW30 is therefore an absolute must for athletes during extreme warm weather. It combines a professional level stopwatch with temperature, humidity, and most importantly, heat index readings.

  • ·Wet Bulb Temperature Gage

Each year as summer winds down, football practices heat up. The weather is usually still hot and humid, so the ever-present danger of dehydration still looms large. Just because someone is young and in perfect health, does not mean they can afford to ignore the dangers of dehydration. Therefore, many states mandate that athletic teams have a Wet Bulb Temperature Gage at each and every practice and game. This unique piece of equipment is the most accurate heat index product available.  It is the best way for coaches and athletes to know when hydration is necessary to avoid serious health risks. Because of its popularity and accuracy, wet bulb gages sell out quickly, so if you need one for the late summer, now is the time to pick one up.
