Heat is a hazard that is too easily ignored. To make it worse, wearing semi or non-permeable protective equipment adds to the risk of overheating or fatigue which leads to accidents on the job.
The ventilated safety helmet from Gateway Safety can help minimize heat buildup under the shell of the helmet, while offering optimal head injury protection. Its airflow system, along with six vents along the peak of the helmet, promotes heat release to keep workers cool. A comfortable, cushioned brow pad absorbs moisture and perspiration, promoting comfortable wear and worker compliance. A rain trough also diverts water from workers’ faces.
The helmet is comfortable and lightweight at 13.1 ounces, with a sleek, snakehead shell style. A six-point nylon suspension and sturdy yet lightweight high-density polyethylene material provide comfort and impact absorption. The helmet comes with a pin-lock or ratchet suspension, which adjusts to fit head sizes from 6-5/8 to 8-¼.
