Why is Salisbury by Honeywell’s Lift Front Hood such a revolutionary product in the electrical safety industry?
Access to fresh air, a CO2 release feature and working without the added weight of a cooling system are significant benefits that make the Lift Front Hood stand out when compared with any other arc flash hood. However, the benefits of the Lift Front Hood go beyond the added comfort and safety of added fresh air.
Another significant concern associated with the traditional arc flash hood is the limited outward visibility that one experiences while the hood is being worn. When you combine limited outward visibility with the before mentioned limited oxygen and CO2 build-up, the standard arc flash hood tends to create a confined dark environment that some refer to as claustrophobic.
Many would admit this is not an ideal working environment. In addition, because the standard arc flash hood has excess fabric that impedes on the face shield, this design limits outward visibility and reduces natural light. Taking this concern into consideration, the Lift Front Hood was designed to increase outward visibility. The LFH allows for use of Salisbury’s transparent chin protector which increases access to natural light. Additionally, if the work environment itself does not contain much natural light, the user can easily add Salisbury’s task lights to each side of the face shield and be provided with an extra 70 lumens (35 lumens per task light) of lighting allowing for a better view of the work space.
If the added fresh air access and dramatically increased outward visibility are not enough to convince the industry that this product is revolutionary, then perhaps the overall decrease in product weight of the Lift Front Hood compared to the standard hood will be considered a dramatic improvement. Users of the standard arc flash hood can attest that its weight is not conducive to a comfortable working environment. The Lift Front Hood contains nearly 60% less fabric than a standard arc flash hood.
This fabric reduction reduces the overall weight of the LFH by almost 30% compared to a standard arc flash hood. The weight reduction is even greater compared to standard hoods that feature an integrated cooling system. The reduction in fabric weight of the LFH also eases the neck strain associated with prolonged use of other arc flash hoods and eliminates the need for manual shifting of the hood which is common with the industry standard product.
With the key benefits of increased breathability, visibility, comfort and safety that have been mentioned above, any user of the standard arc flash hood should be able to see that the Lift Front Hood is truly a revolutionary product. Salisbury by Honeywell is proud to be the first to introduce this ground-breaking product into the marketplace and will continue to use customers’ feedback to create new and innovative products that keep electrical workers safe and comfortable at the same time.
