Fixed Penalty Notice Holders.

Let’s face it; we all have little responsibilities with in our jobs that we rather not, be it from paper work to handing out a fixed penalty notice due to some one making the small mistake of parking in the wrong place. At Patrolstore they have a varied rang of Fixed Penalty Notices Holders helping you do the jobs you hate.

Firstly you have the PWL Fixed Penalty Notice Holder made from high quality leather you get not only a smart/professional looking piece of kit but also a piece of kit which will last. It’s the most popular holder and also comes with a 12 month guarantee. Its double sided so you can keep two types of fixed penalty notice or other piece of paperwork inside. On one side there is a leather strap across the centre with a key ring and leather loop and a pouch with popper closers on the other side if the holder you have four sets of tight leather straps and another leather loop. Both sides have metal clips which are sprung and have clear plastic dividers placed between documents to stop bleed from one page to anther.

You then have the Fixed Penalty Notice Holder – PU. Made from Polyutherane (PU) materials, the combination of Carbamates (utherane) used to make the Polymer give the Protec branded Fixed Penalty Notice Holder – PU plenty of flexibility and durability. Basically it offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. Urethanes have better abrasion and tear resistance than rubbers, while offering higher load bearing capacity making the Fixed Penalty Notice Holder – PU a tough cookie indeed!

At the end of the day it’s your decision which holder you go for, it’s just nice to know there is one for every body.
