Exo / Gas Protection Helmet


Exo the gas protection helmet is designed for oil and gas industry workers in order to provide them an enhanced safety with increased comfort. During normal usage, when there are not any type of harmful chemical gasses around, Exo works just as a regular hard hat with better comfort. If there is a gas leaked occurred all of a sudden, instead of worker trying to access to the safety equipment, Exo detects the gas, sends the signal to the respiration device which is already connected. The time when device starts blowing air into the hose, Exo turns the emergency mode on and releases the visor with the pressure of air with losing no time.
