Ventilated Safety Helmets Can Prevent Heat Buildup
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, workers in hot environments face significant danger of heat stress. Wearing semi- or non-permeable personal protective equipment can add to the risk of a worker overheating or becoming fatigued, which can lead to more accidents on the job.
Gateway Safety’s Serpent Ventilated Safety Helmet is designed to help minimize heat buildup under the shell of the helmet while offering head injury protection. Its CoolSense airflow system, along with six vents along the peak of the helmet, is designed to promote heat release and keep workers cool. A cushioned brow pad absorbs moisture and perspiration, which can enhance wearability and worker compliance.
Serpent features a lightweight design at 13.1 ounces. A six-point nylon suspension and lightweight high-density polyethylene material are designed to provide comfort and impact absorption. Serpent is available with a pin-lock or ratchet suspension, which adjusts to fit 6-5/8 to 8-¼ head sizes. A rain trough also diverts water from workers’ faces.
The Serpent safety helmet complies with the ANSI Z89.1 Standard for Type I Class C helmets.
