Translucent hard hats from Portwest

Portwest hard hats

Modern new head-protection product said to offer substantial health and safety benefits

PORTWEST, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of personal protective equipment (PPE) and clothing, say they are the first to market in Europe and the US with a revolutionary new head-protection product.

The company’s translucent Peak View hard hat is said to offer substantial health and safety benefits by providing wearers with improved visibility compared with a traditional hard-shell protective helmet, thanks to its innovative and practical design features.

Manufactured from a modern translucent high-impact polycarbonate material which allows the wearer to see through the hard hat from any angle, Peak View eliminates the need to head tilt or reverse head harnesses. The helmet is also lightweight and UV400 stabilized, providing protection against harmful UVA and UVB radiation.

The Peak View hard hat is available in a wide range of translucent colours that allows employers or health and safety officers to introduce a colour-coding system, which can help improve communication in dangerous workplace environments. The helmet is fully certified to European Safety Standard EN 397 and American Safety Standard ANSI Z89.1.

‘This product will appeal to industries where safety in the workplace and the comfort of the workforce are paramount,’ said Ray Carney, product and supply director at Portwest. ‘Personal protective equipment can help reduce workplace accidents and fatalities, and revolutionary products such as Peak View are the next logical step for the PPE and workwear market.’
