FR Sol Shade™


Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars
1 Review

When working outside you are looking down and are probably exposing your neck and ears to the sun for hours at a time. Recently addressed by safety codes; not to wear things on your head that will melt, drip and not self-extinguish.

We developed the “Sol Shade” with an ultra-light and inherent flame resistant material which attaches to the brim of hard hats. Tested with both front and full brim hard hats from different manufacturers, and it worked perfectly. Full Disclosure: It's kind of difficult to put on the hard hat, it takes two hands and some coordination. The good news is that once it's on you can forget about it.

We have found some people like to spray the “Sol Shade” with nonflammable insect repellant while others just enjoy the shade.

    This item meets the performance specification ASTM F1506-18 which is the Standard Performance Specification for Flame Resistant and Electric Arc Rated Protective Clothing Worn by Workers Exposed to Flames and Arcs. This specification is called out in OSHA 1910.269, NFPA 70E and CSA Z462.

    Meets NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. Arc Flash PPE Category 1 or “CAT 1” with an Arc Rating (EBT) = 6.4 cal/cm2

    This garment is constructed from arc and flame resistant fabric and components in a facility with audited quality controls. It will resist ignition and not continue to burn when the ignition source is removed. This garment is not intended for fire fighting activities and provides no protection from chemical exposure. This garment will maintain its flame resistant properties for the life of the garment provided wash and care instructions are followed.

    According to NFPA 70E other apparel that does not "meet the requirements regarding melting, or made from materials that do not self-extinguish are not allowed to be worn. So don't use the plastic orange or lime polyester neck shades you see road workers in. If there were an arc flash or flash fire, you would look like a burning candle wearing a hard hat! It is proudly made in the USA.
