A revolution in arc flash protection

Honeywell Safety Products has launched the new Salisbury Lift Front Hood for Arc Flash Protection up to 40 Calories/cm².

The Lift Front Hood is a revolutionary hybrid in arc flash head protection that promises to increase worker visibility, breathability and efficiency.

The Salisbury Lift Front Hood combines the award winning weight balancing AS1200 face shield, a clear chin guard and the standard arc flash protection hood.

Lift Front Hood’s wider face shield and transparent chin guard allow for a 45° greater vertical view compared to a standard arc flash hood.

The wider view increases the vertical peripheral vision field by 109 percent for the worker. Improved visibility increases safety since electrical workers are 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.

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 has 60 percent less fabric weight, making it light and comfortable.
