As summer approaches, it’s getting dark later and many of us are rushing home from work to get some jobs done on our cars before the sun sets.

Here’s a cautionary tale about what can happen if you don’t wait for your exhaust to cool down before you start work. The guy in the picture actually had a DEi Safety Heat Sleeve on order but didn’t wait for it to arrive – or for his exhaust to cool down. Now he has a painful burn and a lasting scar to remind him.

A DEI Safety Sleeve would have prevented all this as it’s made of Kevlar® and it will protect you up to 482°C.

The sleeve is 45.72cm (18in) long and stretches to fit all sizes. More information from 01377 236 170 or ENDS.
