Face Protection System
Uvex Turboshield is a revolutionary new 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 Uvex 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 Uvex 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 Kevin Beckerdite, Uvex® 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 Uvex 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 Uvex 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 Fibre-Metal®, North® and most other leading brands. The unique, Uvex 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, Gray, UV/IR Shade 3.0 and UV/IR Shade 5.0. The renowned, Uvex dual anti-scratch/anti-fog lens coating is optional on the Clear and Gray visors for extended life and reduced fogging. The Uvex Turboshield system is certified to the requirements of ANSI Z87.1-2010 and CSA Z94.3 standards.
