Honeywell Safety Products la\unch the Turboshield A-rated face shield

Honeywell Safety Products (NYSE: HON), the world's largest provider of head to toe personal protective equipment (PPE) solutions, has launched Turboshield the first A-rated face shield on the market.  The Turboshield is a revolutionary new face protection system whose unique, patented and patent-pending features are based on rigorous customer research. The Turboshield face protection system delivers superior comfort for longer wear, the easiest visor exchange available, improved protection and optimal balance when worn with a hard hat. The face protection system includes headgear, a hard hat adaptor and replacement visors all sold separately for maximum versatility.

The Turboshield platform is the perfect solution for workers in nearly every industry who are exposed to falling or flying objects, impact, splash and airborne debris. The Turboshield system embodies Honeywell's commitment to listening to customers, applying world-class technology and innovation, and designing products that change the face of safety. 

"We set out to create a face shield that provides today's workforce with the protection, comfort and ease-of-use they need and deserve," said Christine Mello, face shields product manager for Honeywell Safety Products. "After visiting customers around the world and listening to the challenges facing workers and safety managers, we designed a product that addresses all of their priorities in one truly revolutionary face protection system."

The Turboshield headgear delivers superior comfort through a patented, flexible suspension cradle that provides 300% more contact area than traditional suspensions and eliminates pressure points for all-day wear. A patent-pending, secure, push-button release system enables extremely easy visor exchange in seconds. Large, ergonomic adjustment knobs allow end-users to achieve a personalized, comfortable fit - even while wearing protective gloves.

The Turboshield hard hat adapter's patented dual-hinge system enables the visor to slide back seven inches for improved balance and weight distribution while increasing overhead clearance by up to four inches. The design also keeps accessory slots open for compatibility with additional personal protective equipment.  A unique, integrated brim guard ensures a gap-free fit and added protection from overhead debris. The hard hat adapter is compatible with caps from Honeywell and most other leading brands. The Turboshield headgear and hard hat adapter are compatible with Honeywell's complete family of Supervizor specialty visors including gold coated, triacetate and acetate to provide added flexibility to the range.

The unique, Turboshield toric-shaped visor provides excellent optics, increased field of view and 50% more chin coverage than traditional cylindrical visors, without the need for bulky accessories. Replacement visors are available in Clear, Grey, UV/IR Shade 3.0 and UV/IR Shade 5.0. The renowned, dual anti-scratch/anti-fog lens coating is optional on the Clear and Grey visors for extended life and reduced fogging.

The Turboshield system is certified to the requirements of the EN166 standards.
