Gateway Safety’s new redesigned Serpent safety helmet now includes a new, unvented Class E model and now comes in several new colours. The new Class E model gives users an unvented option that provides good electrical insulation for a wide range of environments, said Matthew Love, vice-president of Gateway Safety. Many of the original features of the Serpent that have helped make compliance less of a battle for employers have been maintained, the company said. These include a rotating ratchet adjustment system (pin-lock also available); an eight-point, six-strap suspension for extreme comfort and impact resistance; and a soft, cloth brow pad. The Serpent’s light 13-ounce weight ensures daylong wearability, the company said. The suspension system comes partially pre-installed, lowering the risk of ill-fitting helmets and potential injuries on the job. Serpent comes in 11 shell colours, including Hi-Viz Orange and Hi-Viz Limon, both independently tested to the ANSI standard for high visibility. All helmet models meet the ANSI Z89.1-2009 standard for Type 1 helmets and have been independently tested to the voluntary ANSI standards for lower temperature and reverse donning, the company said.
