Another industry first — Kappler introduces AntiFog Expanded-View Visor
(GUNTERSVILLE, AL) 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
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.
