MAXBLUE Lens Technology

MCR Safety MAXBLUE JoomlaMAXBLUE lens technology blocks 41 percent of ISO 12312-1 blue light, yet it allows 88 percent of visible light to pass through.

There are many jobs that demand the use of hand-held devices, RF scanners or other portable devices. All of these devices emit blue light, which has been known to cause eye fatigue, headaches and migraines. Many of these jobs also are indoors and, until recently, a wearer that needed to block a good portion of blue light had to resort to amber lenses. The downside of amber lenses, other than the yellow shade, is that they distort color recognition. With MAXBLUE lens technology, a worker can wear a clear lens that has a very faint mirror hue, while still blocking 41 percent of blue light. Other features of these lenses include an athletic-inspired design; a streamlined three-point ratcheting temple; comfortable TPR nosepieces; and hybrid temple.

Zero-Band Headlamps

Nightstick Headlamps JoomlaIn the world of headlamps, you’ll see plenty of heavy-duty straps that fasten a headlamp to a helmet or hard hat. However, Nightstick believes that shouldn’t be the only option available. After all, even the best headbands and straps can wear down due to extensive use and constant exposure to the elements. So, Nightstick has introduced an entire series of Zero-Band Headlamps and includes a secure mounting mechanism with every light.

Until now, helmet mounting brackets historically have increased the overall cost of a headlamp. However, Nightstick’s addition of the model NS-HMC4 Hard Hat Clip Mount with every light effectively addresses this need. It also prevents the user from having to spend additional money and time searching for an aftermarket solution that securely fastens the light to their hard hat.

The NS-HMC4 easily and securely bonds to a hard hat using a sturdy, industry-approved PSA material. Inspired by attachment methods consistently used in mining industry cap lamps, each included helmet lamp bracket is designed to be lightweight and durable. The tilting-head design allows the user to change the light position without having to readjust. The Zero-Band Series offers users different functionality options, including four Intrinsically Safe Dual-Light (spotlight/floodlight) Headlamps and one Dual-Function (high-/low-beam) Headlamp model. No drilling is required.

The Zero-Band Headlamps feature models NSP-4608BC, XPP-5460GCX, XPP-5454GC, XPP-5452GC and XPP-5450GC. All five models are IP-X7 rated waterproof and feature an integrated stainless-steel clip that makes it possible to wear the headlamp securely. As a bonus, three AAA batteries are included to power each light.

In addition, the harness features dual trauma straps, dual parking attachments and arc-rated shoulder pads. It meets ASTM F887 electric arc performance requirements and ANSI Z359, and is available immediately in sizes S-XL.
