SerpentAccording to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States. You don’t have to tell workers during this record heat wave of 2012 that wearing uncomfortable, hot safety helmets on the jobsite can literally make them sick. To combat heat buildup under the helmet that can cause fatigue and heat stress, Gateway Safety’s Serpent® Vented Safety Helmet does the job with a CoolSense airflow system, along with six vents along the peak of the helmet, that promotes heat release and keeps workers cool. Other beneficial features include a cushioned brow pad that absorbs moisture and perspiration and a rain trough to divert water from workers’ faces.

Serpent is the ideal safety helmet choice for employers who want to fulfill their duty under the OSH Act to protect workers from heat-related hazards. In addition, its ultra-light weight of just 13.1 ounces ensures comfort for all-day wear. For a customized, secure fit, Serpent features a six-point nylon suspension and a rotating ratchet adjustment system.

The Serpent shell is made of a sturdy high-density polyethylene material that provides exceptional impact protection without adding weight. Gateway Safety’s Serpent complies with the ANSI Z89.1 Standard for Type I, Class C helmets. Serpent’s sleek snakehead shell style also keeps workers looking good while staying safe. Comfort, light weight, and excellent ventilation combine with optimal head injury protection to make Serpent the ideal hot-environment helmet.
