It has to be Seen to be Believed: New ArcSafe® AmpShield™ Arc Flash Face Shield

The Latest Revolutionary Technology in Arc Flash Protection

AmpShield Arc Flash Face ShieldFor over 50 years, Elliotts has been innovating and designing new products to meet the needs of our customers, and our brand new ArcSafe® AmpShield™  Arc Flash Face Shield is the ‘what’s next’ in arc flash protection. 

Harnessing the latest revolutionary technology the ArcSafe® AmpShield™ Arc Flash Face Shield now offers users full-colour recognition and improved visibility. The grey-coloured, highly transparent face shield now offers an alternative to the traditional green arc flash face shield.

Traditional face shields use a green-tinted shield to absorb the infrared light generated in the event of an arc flash. The green colour is actually a by-product of different dyes used, and the higher the PPE CAT protection level required the darker the green tint needed to be. This made it very difficult to see and differentiate colours such as yellow and white, as well as it decreased visibility in low light or in confined spaces.

The development of this new technology allows a grey-coloured, high transparent face shield without the need of green dyes. This virtually colourless technology allows users to see the full colour spectrum without distortion, whilst also increasing visibility.

The ArcSafe® AmpShield™  has a scientifically proven ability of colour recognition. It closely follows the Lambda curve of the human eye to allow colour recognition across the visible spectrum. By capitalising on the inherent capacity of the human eye, our product complements the natural ability of the eye to see colours.
