Cape Hood Cape Hoods are available in the shoulder length style. This cape attaches to most hard caps. The elastic front simply slips over the bill of the hard cap. The body of the cape is pulled snugly over the cap which reduces the chances of head or neck exposure from overhead leaks. Some Cape Hoods have a bib on the front with either a snap or hook & loop closure to provide additional coverage and protection. Customized Cape Hoods are available upon request. The hard cap shown in the photo is not included.
Maxi Vision Hood The Maxi-Vision Hood offers wide-angle vision furnished by a multidimensional hood. This enlarged hood adapts to twin cartridge respirator, an airline respirator and most SCBA’s. The inner ring allows for easy attachment to the user’s hard hat and keeps it in place. Maxi Vision Hoods with ventilation air capability require the use of the Valve Belt assembly (sold separately) to energize the Hood. The 16” X 11” clear-flex window provides the wearer with a better viewing range than most standard hoods. The rear bib is large enough to cover the upper portion of an air tank. Underarm straps with plastic quick release fittings hold the hood close to the body. The Maxi Vision Hood is manufactured to order.
Shell Hood The Shell Hood has adjustable ratchet headgear attached to a sturdy fiberglass reinforced frame. Providing an excellent range of vision, the window is constructed of 40 mil vinyl permanently sealed to the hood with the use of a 17” X 8” cover window (20 mil thick) resting inside a snap-enclosed pocket for easy replacement. Underarm straps with plastic quick release fittings hold the front and rear bibs close to the body. A standard hang-up loop is included in the design for easy storage. Specially designed options include a perforated airline that provides airflow around the entire inside of the hood (some versions can accommodate a full-face airline respirator if needed) and the option to add headgear to accommodate a hard hat for additional protection. Available in chest length or waist length. The 077-4060 HiGlo Shell Hood design may be in stock and could ship within 2 business days. The remaining designs are manufactured to order.
Shoulder Mount Hood StaSafe® Shoulder-Mounted Hood is ideal for long hours of work because there is no restrictive headgear. The weight of the hood rests on the shoulders. Adjustable underarm straps hold the front and rear bibs close to the body for comfort and splash protection. The viewing window is constructed of a 40 mils vinyl and permanently sealed to the hood and is protected by a clear, replaceable 20 mils acetate splash window on the outside. A 3/8” I.D. air supply tube extends to the top of the hood. Available in chest length or waist length. Shoulder Mount Hood designs are manufactured to order.
Welding Hood The StaSafe® Welding Hood is the answer for welders working on chemical lines. The hood provides protection from chemicals that a normal welding hood does not offer. A high-strength welding helmet rests inside this durable GraLite® 20 hood. (Does not include filter plates. Available in shades three to eight). Standard 2” x 4 ¼” flip-type retainer lens protrudes from the hood. A perforated airline provides airflow around the entire inside of the hood when connected to our valve belt hose assembly (not included). Welding Hoods are manufactured to order.
Valve Belt Assembly Required for Air Line Hoods Valve Belt Assemblies are required for use with Shoulder Mount, Shell and Maxi Vision Hoods with an airline. See the Valve Belt Assemblies for Air Line Hoods category.
