Head and eye protection

Head and eye protection become one

JSP’s new EVOVISTA Helmet incorporates a fully retractable optical class 1 faceshield or overspec

EVOVISTAJSP has launched a new helmet, inspired by feedback received from workers who regularly wear head protection alongside eye protection. The R&D department discovered that a common theme was not only the compatibility issue but also the amount of eyewear lost or damaged on site after it had issued.

The EVOVISTA Helmet is said exceed PPE standards and combines a super strong ABS shell with the choice of either a EVOVISTAlens or a EVOVISTAshield, depending on the levels of protection and performance required.

EVOVISTAlens functions like a spectacle but offers increased levels of protection to EN 166B 2C-1.2 FT and EVOVISTAshield conforms to EN166 2C-1.2 with impact rating of grade AT. Both are optical class 1 and have anti-mist and anti-scratch coatings offering impact protection at extreme temperatures and UV protection.

The new technology of the fully adjustable pivot arms in the helmet allows the lens and shield to be deployed outwards and over prescription spectacles unlike similar systems that require helmet adjustment to fit.
