Peak View translucent hard hat by Portwest
The Peak View Translucent Hard Hat is the first of its kind to be brought to European and American markets. It is an improved modern design on the traditional hard shell protective helmet that allows wearers maximum peripheral vision.
The Peak View hard hat is manufactured from a new translucent high-impact polycarbonate material which enables the wearer to see through the hard hat from any angle. This eliminates the need to tilt the head or reverse head harnesses as visibility has been significantly improved.
Wearers are offered improved visibility in the workplace due to its translucent, comfort and practical design features. In addition, it is available in a wide range of translucent colours. This allows employers or Health and Safety officers to introduce a colour coding system, which helps improve communication.
"This product will appeal to industries where safety in the workplace and the comfort of its workforce are paramount. Personal Protective Equipment is the solution to reducing work place accidents and fatalities, and revolutionary products such as Peak View are the next logical step for the Personal Protective Equipment and Workwear market.”
Portwest Peak View Translucent Helmet is available now.
