Latest innovations in arc flash protection
For over 50 years, Elliotts has been innovating and designing new products to meet customer needs. Our new ArcSafe® AmpShield™ Arc Flash Face Shield ‘What’s next’ Arc flash protection.
ArcSafe® AmpShield™ Arc Flash Face Shields utilize the latest innovative technology to provide users with full color perception and improved visibility. A gray, highly transparent face shield replaces the traditional green arc flash face shield.
Traditional face shields use a green tinted shield to absorb the infrared radiation produced when an arc flash occurs. The green color is actually a by-product of the various dyes used, and the higher the level of PPE CAT protection required, the darker the shade of green required. This made it very difficult to see and distinguish colors such as yellow and white, and reduced visibility in low light or confined spaces.
The development of this new technology allows for gray, highly transparent face shields without the need for green dye. This virtually colorless technology allows users to see a full color spectrum without distortion and also improves visibility.
