Another industry first — Kappler introduces AntiFog Expanded-View Visor
Thanks to Kappler, one of the most perplexing problems for protective clothing users now has a clear solution — literally.
Kappler’s AntiFog Expanded-View Visor means no more fogged-up face visors for gas-tight suit wearers.
There have been many efforts to address this common problem over the years, from wipes to sprays to homemade concoctions. But cost-effective solutions have eluded protective apparel manufacturers until now. “The anti-fog innovation is a huge advance for hazmat responders and chemical workers, where
seeing better means working safer,” said Laura Kappler-Roberts, president and CEO of Kappler, Inc. “The response has been tremendous, which is really gratifying considering how long the industry has been trying to solve this problem.” The patent-pending visor technology is being combined with another key “see better, work safer” improvement: A large, expanded-view visor which significantly increases the suit wearer’s field of vision with 17% more visor surface area. The AntiFog Expanded-View Visor is being incorporated as a standard feature on all Kappler gas-tight suits made with Zytron® and Frontline® fabrics, including NFPA-certified styles.
Chemical Protection Suit
Zytron 500 is top of the class – and the classic responder choice for hazmat and other demanding situations. It’s tough, built for mobility, and based on patented technology that created the first material to survive eight full hours against the ASTM F1001 Test Battery with no breakthrough.
With that kind of Kappler heritage built into the fabric, it’s no wonder that responders around the world trust Z500 garments for ultra-demanding Level A and Level B applications. Available in coveralls and a range of total encapsulating suits.
