Honeywell has manufactured a bionic shield, which protects workers against airborne debris, splash, welding and infrared radiation
The bionic shield is lightweight yet tough, and works well in environments with high levels of hazard, according to officials at Honeywell. It increases protection from debris, provides clear visibility and has a replaceable visor with dual position choices.
The lightweight device, made of polycarbonate, has an ergonomic design for extended use and allows for secure attachment of the visor. The back of the headgear has a cell foam which cushions the head. One can breathe easily while using the shield and attach a respirator, if required. Like most facial shields, Honeywell’s bionic shield must also be worn with spectacles or goggles since a shield offers secondary protection.
According to the company, workers engaged in industries like agriculture, chemical production, construction, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, steel and utilities can utilise this bionic shield.
Honeywell’s device meets ANSI Z87+ (High Impact) standards and is certified to the requirements of the CSA Z94.3 standards.
