New ventilated safety helmets unveiledPosted on 04/04/2008
A new range of safety helmets which are designed to keep workers cool when working in warm conditions has been launched.
Created by US company Gateway Safety, the new personal protective equipment (PPE) features the firm's CoolSense air flow system, meaning heat can escape from the top of the helmets and can keep people cool.
As well as featuring the ventilation system, the head protection is manufactured from lightweight high-density polyethylene material and features a brow pad to absord perspiration.
The company has stated that the new design will help workers remain fully alert and not distracted when working in warm environments.
Gateway Safety's new range of protective headwear has been released several weeks after global firm North Safety Products also launched a new line of PPE.
Designed to protect emergency personnel, the company's range of reflective safety vests features a reflective stripe design exclusive to the manufacturer.
The new line also meets official standards outlined by the International Safety Equipment Association.
