Grain Jacket / Personal Protective Equipment

Grain Jacket
Grain Jacket

This vest is designed to be worn when working in grain storage facilities. Its main purpose is to stop the workers lungs from being crushed if they become entrapped in the loose grain. The pressure on the victim (from the grain) can be enough to prevent them from breathing if they are not protected. This vest is the first look at a personal solution that is cost effective, and easily maintainable.
