U.S. manufacturer National Safety Apparel has released ArcGuard Lift Front Arc Flash Hoods featuring the latest arc flash industry innovations in one superior product.
The lift-front arc flash face shields were designed to solve the common problems of poor ventilation and overheating that often came with traditional hood designs. The lift-front design allows the wearer to easily obtain fresh air when out of the hazard risk zone by simply lifting a latch. The easy-to-raise window provides fresh air without having to remove the entire hood. Before returning to the hazard risk zone, the wearer can quickly regain compliance by securing the shield back to the lowered and locked position. The latch makes an audible click to alert the wearer that the shield is safely secured.
When the shield is down and the wearer is at work, the lift-front hood features specially designed indirect vents. With built-in vents at the front, sides and top, ArcGuard Lift Front Arc Flash Hoods deliver more ventilation than similar products on the market. These vents also serve as auditory ports for improved two-way communication, even when the window is secured.
The lift-front design is currently available in two 40-cal options. ArcGuard Compliance, made with Westex UltraSoft, is a perfect upgrade to your classic arc flash suit. For a premium solution, the ArcGuard RevoLite is made from lightweight, inherently flame-resistant material that is 50 percent lighter than traditional 40-cal options.
