Honeywell has announced an innovative new face shield technology with more optical clarity to better protect electrical workers from potentially deadly electrocution and arc flash.
Salisbury by Honeywell’s new PrismShield arc flash protective face shield incorporates proprietary nanotechnology that allows a wider spectrum of light to enter the lens of the face shield. This greatly improves color recognition and color sharpness for electrical workers and reduces the need to lift the shield to see wires more clearly, particularly in dim light.
PrismShield makes use of a bronze lens tint, which improves color recognition for the electrical worker in poorly lit areas, particularly indoors. A premium anti-scratch, anti-fog lens coating also enhances visibility for the worker over the life of the product.
In addition, Honeywell has developed an exclusive weight-balancing frame for the face shield that reduces the likelihood of the shield moving or tipping, which reduces neck strain and increases comfort.
The PrismShield technology meets ASTM F2178 and ANSI Z87.1 standards and will be available on all Salisbury by Honeywell 12- and 20-cal face shields for all switch hoods and in both 20- and 40-cal versions of the lift front hood models.
