CATU LAUNCHES AN INNOVATIVE ARC FLASH PROTECTION PRODUCT

In collaboration with CICAME ENERGIE, CATU is launching a new Helmet featuring an "arc Flash" face shield. With its radical new design, the product is light, easy to use and provides optimum protection thanks to the combination of the screen and fabric flap which is resistant to heat energy produced by an electric arch. The screen is designed to protect the retina from UV and infra-red rays resulting from glare and burns that the cornea may experience when an electric arch is produced.

The combination of the screen and flap provides minimum face heat protection of 23 cal/cm2.

This patented product has passed the tests required by IEC and ANSI standards, and has been certified by the ASTM as suitable to be sold all over the world. The product was first unveiled at the IEEE 2012 exhibition in Orlando.
