20 cal/cm² Salisbury AS2000HAT Arc Flash Face Shield with Hard Hat
The AS2000HAT is a Weight Balancing Arc Flash Protection Face Shield. The shield stows in a balanced, compact position, centered over the top of the hard hat when not needed.
The AS2000HAT has an ATPV rating of 20 cal/cm 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 face shield 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.
The National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) requires 20 cal/cm2 protection when working on 480/277 volt energized equipment. Currently there is no NESC requirement for face/head protection within this voltage range; however, Salisbury encourages head to toe safety in all electrical environments.
