BOLINGBROOK, ILL., April 13, 2010 Salisbury by Honeywell’s new AS1200HAT is a Weight Balancing Arc Flash Protection Face Shield that stows in a balanced compact position, centered over the top of the hard hat when not needed.

The AS1200HAT has an ATPV rating of 12cal/cm² and utilizes nanotechnology to provide a clearer, more transparent window for improved visibility. The shield/window is designed to be easily replaced without tools. The faceshield unit includes ventilation ribs that allow a natural convection air flow through the top of the face shield. This reduces fogging of the visor, lowers CO2 levels and improves comfort for the user.

Optional accessories for the AS1200HAT include a cold weather anti-fog inner lens and attachable task lights. The cold weather anti-fog inner lens includes an air spaced design that decreases fogging in cold weather. The shield meets the ASTM requirements for an Anti-Fog Lens. On both sides of the faceshield is an easily attachable task lights. With these optional task lights, the user is not inconvenienced with holding a flashlight while working.
