Ventilated safety helmet

Gateway Safety’s Serpent ventilated safety helmet prevents heat buildup with CoolSense airflow system.

Cleveland, August 17, 2010—According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, workers in hot environments face significant danger of heat stress. Wearing semi- or non-permeable personal protective equipment can add to the risk of a worker overheating or becoming fatigued, which can lead to more accidents on the job.

Gateway Safety’s Serpent ventilated safety helmet can help minimize heat buildup under the shell of the helmet, while offering optimal head injury protection. Its CoolSense airflow system, along with six vents along the peak of the helmet, promotes heat release and keeps workers cool. A comfortable, cushioned brow pad absorbs moisture and perspiration, promoting wearability and worker compliance.

Serpent is very comfortable and extremely lightweight at just 13.1 ounces, with a sleek, snakehead shell style that appeals to workers. A six-point nylon suspension and sturdy yet lightweight high-density polyethylene material provide both comfort and exceptional impact absorption. Serpent is available with a pin-lock or ratchet suspension, which adjusts to fit 6-5/8 to 8-1/4 head sizes. A rain trough also diverts water from workers’ faces.

The Serpent safety helmet complies with the ANSI Z89.1 Standard for Type I, Class C helmets.
