Originated in employment with UVEX Arbeitsschutz GmbH
The design of the Face Guard has been tailor-made for the needs of clients in the aluminum production. The workers in this field are exposed to very high temperatures up to 60°C. Another hazard is the threat of chemical burns caused by liquids that are used in the bauxite and aluminum production.
In addition to the protective function another challenge was to enable the workers to drink. It is mandatory to wear a helmet at all times, so it is prohibited to takeoff the eye and face protection. By the foldability of the lower part of the face guard, the worker can easily switch his mask, drink or communicate, without removing the eye protection.
