The Arc Flash Hood faceshield is manufactured with Oberon ArcX™ energy absorbing polycarbonate plastic. The 25 calorie Arc flash Hood has a visible light transmission of approximately 57%, which is also know as (VLT). The anti-fog coating in the inner surface allows for improved visibility when working in warm temperatures. The Scratch resistant surface on the face shield improves the life of the face shield compared to most face shields that tend to break or crack. Arc Protective Hoods by Oberon will fit a standard hard hat.
Engineers in the field testing within the Hazard rating category of 8 calories or above are required to wear head & face protection. The NFPA 70E safety standard requires workers to be outfitted in Flame Resistant Protective Clothing that meets the requirements of ASTM F1506 when there is a possible exposure to Electrical Arc Flash. The short duration and intense energy presents a unique safety hazard. Employers must assess the potential hazard and determine the flash protection boundary distance. It has been confirmed by OSHA that garments which meet the requirements of ASTM F1506 are in compliance with NFPA 70E, OSHA 29 CFR 1910.269 and ANSI Z87.1
