JohnDow launches EV and hybrid vehicle service safety product line

Nov. 6, 2023
The new line offers 30 safety products including gloves, face shields, aprons, blankets, insulated tools, jackets, and boots among other products to keep technicians safe while servicing electric and hybrid vehicles.

JohnDow Industries introduced its new line of electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid service and safety product line at AAPEX 2023 in Las Vegas.

The new line offers 30 safety products including gloves, face shields, aprons, blankets, insulated tools, jackets, and boots among other products to keep technicians safe while servicing electric and hybrid vehicles.

“JDI listened to the market and grew our product lines to offer high quality, reliable, and safe equipment service repairers needed," said Robert Christy, president of JDI. "Understanding where the automotive industry is going, we are not shying away from living this principal and expanding our offering to include service and safety equipment for electric and hybrid vehicle repairs.”

One notable product included within the safety line is the Vehicle Fire Blanket. Since Li-ion battery fires cannot be extinguished using traditional fire extinguishing methods, service repairers must be prepared for these potentially devastating disasters during a repair.

JDI’s Vehicle Fire Blanket is designed to suppress vehicle fires and prevent fire from spreading and damaging nearby property while preventing toxic fumes and smoke from releasing into surrounding areas.

This Fire Blanket is ideal for parking lots, auto repair shops, firefighters, underground parking lots, service stations, and charging stations.

Product benefits include:

  • Contains vehicle fire and its debris to protect property, staff, and customers
  • Limits damage and spread of fire to nearby areas
  • For use on any passenger vehicle including internal combustion and EVs
  • Keeps toxic smoke derived from combustion contained
  • Two people can deploy the 19.5' by 29.5' blanket in seconds
  • Easily deploy from a convenient storage rack with oversized straps
