Salisbury Lift Front Hood for arc flash protection

Wednesday, 23 October, 2013 | Supplied by: Honeywell Industrial Safety

Honeywell Safety Products has launched the Salisbury Lift Front Hood for arc flash protection up to 40 calories/cm². The arc flash head protection is also designed to increase worker visibility, breathability and efficiency.

The Salisbury Lift Front Hood combines the weight balancing AS1200 face shield, a clear chin guard and the standard arc flash protection hood. Its wider face shield and transparent chin guard allow for a 45° greater vertical view compared to a standard arc flash hood. The wider view is claimed to increase the vertical peripheral vision field by 109% for the worker. It also improves visibility and increases safety as electrical workers are much more aware of their surroundings while working in an arc flash hazardous environment.

Heat stress is a major concern in arc flash protection because protective clothing and equipment tend to be bulky and non-breathable. The Lift Front Hood’s industrial bracket design creates a natural ventilation system that allows carbon dioxide and heat to escape as they are emitted from the body.

The absence of fabric over the hard hat also mitigates trapped air that can cause fogging and heat stress. The face shield is latched to the hood when in operation and can be raised and stowed in a weight balancing position over the hard hat when not in use or when a worker steps out of the arc flash boundary to obtain additional fresh air.

While offering the same level of arc flash protection as a standard arc flash hood, the Lift Front Hood claims to have 60% less fabric weight, thus making it lighter and comfortable to wear.
