March 24, 2008
According to NIOSH, working in a hot environment can lower workers’ mental alertness and physical performance or divert their attention from their tasks. To help offset the adverse effects of working in hot weather, Gateway Safety offers the Serpent™ Ventilated Safety Helmet with the CoolSense™ air flow system that lets heat escape, keeping workers cooler and therefore promoting compliance. A soft cushioned brow pad helps absorb moisture and perspiration.The Serpent’s snake-head shell design looks ultra-cool, so workers will want to wear it. They’ll be protected by its extremely durable but lightweight high-density polyethylene material, weighing in at just 13.1 ounces. The soft, six-point nylon suspension is comfortable yet provides exceptional 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 helps divert water from workers’ faces.The Serpent complies with the ANSI 89.1 Standard for Type I, Class C helmets only.
