About CGEAR Sand-Free Life
CGear Australia was established in 2003 and holds a patent in 100 countries for its SAND FREE mats.
Continual research and development by the CGear Sand-Free team has seen the production of products for use by the military and the outdoor/recreational markets. These two divisions of CGear Sand-Free are internationally recognized innovators in these specialized fields and markets.The military products CGear Sand-Free has developed focus on providing solutions to sand and dust abatement for helicopters when landing and taking off. The CGear Sand-Free patented Tactical Helimat is a light weight transportable Helipad that solves the problem of sand and dust abatement, known as Brown out.
Brown out traditionally has caused serious safety issues due to the lack of visibility whilst operating in sand and dusty environments. Further, brown out can cause mechanical failures due to ingestion of sand and accelerated wear of rotor blades, rotor gear, general wear on engines and filters. The company’s SAND FREE Helimat facilitate in increased operational aircraft time, reduced maintenance costs and increased operation safety for aircraft and ground crew. It also reduces ingestion of sand and dust, is lightweight, compact and rapidly deployable, impervious to aviation fuels and oil spills and flame resistant. CGear Sand-Free distributes the Tactical Helimat to the US Marines and other Military worldwide.
In 2010 CGear Sand-Free Ltd launched this technology outside of Australian shores and onto the recreational market in the United States and around the world. The 2010 collection comprises of an Orange / Tan and Blue / Green mat embracing similar technology to that used by the militaries it sells to. For 2011 S/S the company has launched the much anticipated Rug Range available in 4 patterns perfect for all outdoor occasions.
The company offers smart, innovative solutions enhancing your time outdoors by bringing the some comforts from home.
- Comfort Sand-Free Mat
This makes for a great blanket alternative when you’re sitting on a sandy area. If you do get sand on the surface, it is sifted through the different layers, back to the ground, instead of getting on your clothes or in your bags.
- Tote III Sand-Free Bag
When you need a sturdy bag to haul your beach or pool gear, this sand-free bag is perfect for keeping it all organized and clear of any sand. Plus it has a strap and handles for carrying wherever you need to take it.
So growing up near the beach, we went probably once a week, sometimes several times a week. Whether we were there for several hours or just a few minutes to relax after a long day, one thing was always the same: bringing the sand back home with you.
You’d brush it off your shoes as much as you could while burning your feet on the pavement next to the car; you’d shake out the towels and the breeze would kick it back in your face; and your beach bag would never really be sand free again!
Now imagine if that blanket you sat on was made of a material with several layers that allowed the sand to “sift” right back through to the ground? Or your beach bag was made from the same material and you could just shake anything that got in back out? And we’re not just talking about sand from the beach either! This stuff works for going to the pool, the park, the lake, anywhere that you might get dirt, sand, or even crumbs on your things! You simple shake it or gently swipe your fingers over the mess and it starts falling through the material’s weave.
We were able to try out the Comfort Sand-Free Mat in the medium size, which is 5’1″ x 6’6″, so plenty of space to sit on. You can easily set several side by side as your gathering expands, or even go with the larger size from the start. It’s available in several colors and patterns to fit your preferences, and folds up in seconds to become it’s own carrying case. It’s also water resistant so you’re not sitting on wet material all day. Again, great for families at the park, soccer fields, or any other spot where you’re trying to stay clean and dry.
The other piece I enjoyed was the Tote III Sand-Free Bag. I thought it was pretty heavy duty and won’t fall apart easily. It’s also easy to carry with the strap or the handles, depending on what’s more comfortable for you. And since it’s also water resistant and any dust or dirt falls through the material, your important items like your cell phone and snacks won’t be at risk.
CGEAR Sand-Free Life also makes products like shoes, RV mats, backpacks, wagons, and more. The concept is the same as the others I mentioned to help keep down sand, dust, and dirt particles while also helping to keep you dry. And with all the colors and styles, you’re sure to find something for everyone in the family. Make sure to check them out today for summer fun without the sand.
