Hastings, a manufacturer of hotline tools and equipment, considers protection of a line-worker from hazardous voltage serious business. Safety is always top priority. The Bucket Barricade is the latest, patented product from Hastings that gives linemen added protection when working on high voltage lines.
The Bucket Barricade is designed to fit inside the lift bucket and gives added face and body protection against sudden releases of energy that can occur during an electrical flash. Unlike face shields—which can fog up, obstruct visibility and create a potential hazard—the Bucket Barricade guards the face and body with one solid sheet of clear, high dielectric, impact resistant material.
This new product does more than shield line-workers from electrical arc and arc flashes. Bucket Barricade also provides a barrier for wind and weather conditions, and transformer oil spray.
Features include:
• Built-in tool board,
• Accommodates any bucket size,
• Available in two width sizes of 18 and 23 inches,
• Adjusts to four different heights with one-hand deployment, and
• Easy to stow.
